Windows 7: Not Sold on Win 7

7 x64
 
 
Not Sold on Win 7

I know this first one is pretty much my fault; using a Beta Program on a pc that doubles as an at home work computer however the fact I cannot run Quickbooks is unacceptable - meaning sending invoices, statement, etc. There are fixes available online for the pdf convertor problem that I have fixed on my work and friend's pcs (Vista x64) but the fix will not work Win 7.

Additionally, I have problem with anti-spam settings in Outlook that crashes my pc if I close the message box (no fixes solved this one) and the fact almost all my USB devices have to be plugged directly into the front inputs on my tower to work - ehhhhhhhhhhh, what is the deal here? My DLink Hub is now mangled with loose wires - neither one of my externals register either.

I don't know about this one; it seems to work so much more fluid than XP but then again, I get error messages, blue screen with memory dumps and a printer that has a personality - so it only works sometimes now.

Is this because of lack of support meaning still in Beta or are there really this many bugs that haven't been worked out.

The thought of downgrading to Vista (Ugggh) to get these issues to work is unsettling. I didn't mention that the fact while I was typing this message the cursor left the message box four times and went page backwards twice? Huh?!?!?!?

Your installed version might be Beta, but Windows 7 is out of Beta. Post your system specs and maybe someone can help - with individually described problems.

Hi Canman, welcome to the forums
Please post your system specs, that way it will be easier to get help. Many of your poroblems seem to be hardware related. I beleive you have made sure the USB HUB is correctly recognized by your BIOS, right (it should if it worked before)?

Yep its beta. even in beta it has good driver support for 32bit. 64 still can be a bit of a problem. If we knew what your hardware was (by filling in yur system specs lower left corner) we could comment on the availability for drivers.

7 x64
 
 

HP - Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz / 4 GB RAM / 64 bit

Is there another place or something else to copy for more detailed system specs? It is store bought so I don't know about mobo / memory / etc. Where can I find details on this. I filled in some other info on my profile too.

Yeah, I probably have a whole array of bugs - the cursor just stops and disappears while typing - I have to click back on the spot where it stopped. I type up a whole message on another form and then it backpedaled to the forum on its own - had to retype it again. So far, my cursor has disappeared twice during this message. Enabled short keys or something?

Thanks all for all your help - it is appreciated!

Canman, you will find detailed specs here: Product specifications HP Pavilion Media Center m8430f Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
or just go to the HP site, Support & Drivers and let it detect your system
I meant viruses. That wild cursor is way strange.
let us know

I think it is his writing cursor (how do you call this thing?), that keeps on changing places. Maybe it is Boris in Ukraine the one actually using the computer, which became a zombie by now
