Tweak VI is a no-no.

If you use Belarc Advisor it tells you your are using Windows XP (7000)

Use Epson DX9400F all-in-one, accepted the Scanner part but not the printer despite downloading updated printer driver.

Windows XP, eh? Seems Windows 7 is based off of the XP kernel with Vista visual upgrades?

I have setup a playlist in Media Player, but when I insert a DATA disk into my drive, Media Player stops playback and tries to open the disk.

Normal behaviours I understand when inserting a video DVD, but not a data disk...

No, 7 is based on the Vista kernel, not XP.

Odd how it shows up as XP on software.

Belarc advisor sometimes has problems correctly identifying some software sometimes. It's not perfect. Also, it doesn't support 7 yet so, it get's confused.

icon cache for start menu programs is SLOW.

windows explorer doesn't immediately recognize virtual drives, might as well give me a pop up "reboot please"

a run time C++ library error occurs each time i try to open the control panel; only way i get it to open is leave the error pop up alone try again until it is open.

file and folder permissions are schizophrenic; sometimes i can download a file to a folder and rename, delete, move or execute it. sometimes i can't do any of the above while i haven't changed permissions in the meantime after giving myself full control over the whole drive. frustrating to have to wait until firefox downloads a file before i know if i really do have it.

can't view desktop when moving cursor over the right side of the taskbar but works if i am logged in as a different user(option anywhere?)

there been a few times i got my vista64 disk ready to get rid these problems. but i really do like the changes to the task bar and how i do not have to dig deep for a few other things, like changing resolution. i wish microsoft would have left explorer alone.

Windows 7 bugs
Windows 7 has a TON OF BUGS they need to work out. For example, almost all of the everyday things that I like to download, like Java, will not work on here. Microsoft needs to develope a lot of patches that will make my Vista software and hardware work on Windows 7.
