Hello, new to the forum. I like the way things here look, and the support here seems pretty awesome (from reading various posts)!!!
What I am wanting to do is a custom install of Windows 7 Premium. I'm really no expert on all things Windows, but I have felt for a long time that simply installing Windows from the cd / dvd is not really the most efficient and "power user" way of doing things. I feel that in doing an install from cd / dvd that lots of things are added that are not needed, and that I do not have the kind of control over my operating system (where things go, etc.) that I could have.
Does anyone here have a tutorial (for power users) that I can follow (accompanying screen shots would be great!) to accomplish this?
The reason I am asking all this is that in the past week or so suddenly I could no longer view shockwave files on the Internet (ie, youtube, games at Free Games Online, Free Online Games, Flash Games! - Agame.com
), and that after doing a system restore back to the point of where I started noticing the above-mentioned problems, the system restore seemed to hang. Doing a cold boot of the machine brought up a window saying that the system restore did not complete and that nothing was changed. Yet ...... I am now able to view shockwave files. Just doesn't make sense to me!
Anyway ... I have long been jealous of the way Linux can be customized and wish I could have something like that in Windows. (by the way, I feel that Linux geeks tend to be snobbish).
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!
