Everyone of your problems is EASILY fixable.

And for over a week from installing so many issues. He just told me, that "there was a time I loved my computer, those times are definitely over"... Every day new issue, new "cannot".
1. It needs PROGRAM to remember icons positions. Common?...
2. It doesn't support best Force Feedback joystick its own production: Sidewinder... My BF told me that he will not spend a lot of money to find decend replacement (Which is supposedly not possible). I had to move on to Cyborg X joystick from normal Sidewinder Precision 2. Well... it is pain. No better joystick than Sidewinder, sorry...
3. Total problem with owning thing and administrator things.
4. For example we couldn't change skin in Winamp and couldn't download any plugins. PAIN IN THE ASS...
5. No Outlook Express, Windows Mail is stupid, Thunderbird annoying, won't buy Outlook 2010 for sure... No using mail whatsoever then.
6. Hypersnap started working after XP mode turning on (even if it is last one edition and should work), one hour of anger...
7. Making stupid partition during installing (100MB) for system?! Cannot make my own system partition. Stupid...
8. Favourite marine aquarium screensaver doesn't work too.
9. ACD See doesn't work... We won't buy new products only for stupid system
10. System crashed after installing new update. So update is now off.
12. It doesn't work with proper frequency with old and good CRT monitor. STUPID!

So we now are afraid to turn on comp and install anything new. Great, great dissappointment
This post gave me cancer.

And Trisk ... you're going to LOVE Windows 8

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

Trisk -- I have never heard of anyone having the problems that you have had. Could you fill in your System Specs in the lower left of your message. This might be a clue as to why you are having a problem. Be as complete as possible.

Moving Windows Old
Hi After a reinstall of Windows 7 the Windows Old file takes up some 53GB of my 128GB SSD. Is it OK to move(copy) this file to a storage drive, and delete it from my C drive? Thanks in advance

What do you regret?
Granted, many of us don't cry over spilled milk, or have moved on and don't dwell on the past, but there's always something that we can think of that we regret. I'll go first. Letting a few good (marriage material) women get away. Not buying that Samsung 830 64Gb SSD for $99.99, a few days...

Moving Windows 7 from one HD to another
I recently bought a laptop, it came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I ended up getting another HD on it, and I got my hands on a Windows 7 Ultimate disk. Thing is this second HD is actually a SSD so I want to install 7 on it, and I'll do it with the Ultimate for obvious reasons. A friend of mine...
