Windows 7: Windows 7 Starter on Asus Netbook

Windows 7 Starter on Asus Netbook

Bought my partner the Asus 1005HA for Xmas, and it runs pretty well. May upgrade ram, but it works.

The only minor issue I have experienced is that the small magnifying glass that should come up on the second entry when searching in start menu (the one that says 'see more results' after the initial search in the 'search programs' box) is a blank box with no icon. Small change... but rather than rebuild all icons for this small issue is there another way around it? She can live with it... but I would like the magnifying glass there

I am sure that the above good advice will help. In the event that it does not, the only other method, as far as I know, is System Restore. I however would not utilize that method for such a small problem. But wanted you to have the option. Happy New year
