Windows 7: Windows 7 Security/Firefox support/Clean Install

Windows 7 Security/Firefox support/Clean Install

hi

1. I going to do a clean install of Windows 7 32-bit in the next couple of hours. Can anyone tell me if Firefox supports the features of Windows 7 like the displaying thumb previews on the taskbar? And other features? I really don't want to use IE8!

2. I have some private files on my PC like my CV/Bank Card details, I want to put them somewhere safe and put a password on them, how do I do this without buying 3rd party software?

3. I have 2 partitions on my HDD, C and D. I will move my personal files to drive D. And do a clean install of Windows 7 on the C(currently Vista installed here) drive. Is this ok? Any issues I may experience?

Thanks,

Mani

Yeah, when it comes time to format make good and sure you have the right partition. I've lost count of the number of times I have seen people formatting and installing to the wrong partition, and losing everything on it.

Thanks for answering the 3 questions! But for number 2, do I have to have Windows 7 Ultimate for the bitlocker? I would like to install the home premium only. Will this have the bitlocker thing? Thanks again.

P.S. Yes, for number 3, my idea rocks!

#1. Firefox will only show the preview of the current tab, not all tabs like IE 8.

Thanks everyone. I will use WinRAR to protect my personal files since you can bunch them together and put 128-bit encryption on them.

I will install Windows 7 at 8pm UK hehe
