Need some help, please! Got Win 7 Pro on new Dell....have regretted it 4 the 3 months I've had this machine! Half of my (some) expensive software that claimed
to be compatible is NOT! Big problem now is 7 is actually randomly saving multiple copies of files I save, so I now have "My Websites" and a 'copy' within that folder named "My Website"....so this is the problems this is creating:
1) I save a file to "My Websites" (I do websites for dog breeders)
2) I go back to find that same file.....but it's not under "My Websites"...it's now under sub-folder "My Websites"....which is not
where I saved it!
3) Also at random, clicking on "My Websites" does not open the folder (depending on which copy of "My Websites" actually opens ..(the main folder or the sub-folder).
4) at that point, more often than not, the computer freezes....sometimes, after several seconds, it will finally open the folder....most times, it stays 'frozen'...have to reboot!
To make matters worse, this cliche does not 'synchronize
' both "My Websites" folders...so files between the 2 folders are not showing the same files...some have been updated but others have not.
Others things, files/folders, have also 'self-duplicated' themselves ....weirdest thing I've ever come across.
Open to any suggestions.....including a little guidance to setup either dual boot (making XP Pro my first boot) or a VPC. I have to go with the OS that supports all my software needed to make my money....and that's XP! I'm losing money because I can't get my sites completed at this rate....got several people mad at me now....gotta figure out a solution.
Hope you guys can steer me in the right direction! Appreciate your time!
