    I dislike how I can't keep folder views unique to each folder. For example I may want to have my Documents sorted by name, while I want to keep a folder that contains Firefox downloads folder sorted by date modified.
    I just wish it would remember the one view over time. For some reason every once in a while it has a brain fart and all my windows stop opening maximized, and I have to resize them all again.

    Notification Area Icons - Reset, You should not have to use a registry key & stop/restart explorer.exe just to get rid of old icons from deleted programs, also some programs have the wrong icon beside them (see below)

    If you run regular CCleaner sweeps as many members here do, you can include this in the options. Not ideal but better that the reg hack restart alternative

    You'll learn something new here every day on SevenForums

    Just installed CCleaner a couple of weeks ago after my system mechanic subscription ran out, CCleaner does the same thing pretty much & much safer anyway but I never noticed that option until you just mentioned it as I have been using CCleaner with default settings.

    Thanks.

    You're welcome, and thanks for the rep :)

    CCleaner is one of those programs where reading the manual can be very rewarding, I've been using it for years but I think there are still options that could improve the way it helps me

    Next gripe.. Windows 7 went retail almost a full year ago and Microsoft still refuses to admit that the wireless connectivity problems that span such a huge variety of hardware and software configurations could be anything but a problem with wndows 7 itself, let alone attempt to find a solution.
    Why should M$ worry about manufacturers who can't be bothered about their customers, and get up-to-date.

    I've no problems with all my wireless equipment, because I use manufacturers who care about their customers and move with the times and don't dwell in the past.

    Thats the trouble with most of the gripes on here, its all to do with what used to be, thats past and the sooner people stop trying drag everything back into the last decade, the better it will be, get of your backsides and move on, dump all the old past-it systems, its a new world of computing, whats the saying "If you can't stand the heat......"

    I would bet I can find examples of people having network problems only when using windows 7 who are using the same wireless equipment you have. It's got nothing to do with manufacturers or outdated hardware.

    And that's the trouble with a forum like this, and generally everywhere, is there are always a few over-opinionated and under-informed [insert fitting term of opprobrium here] who have absolutely nothing constructive to say about a topic, but think they need to reply anyway.

    Please do? Just FYI, the wireless in my house worked perfectly even on the release day of Windows Vista and still works.

    If they are using the same as me and having problems, that is finger trouble and nothing to do with M$, or manufacturers, if you can't get things working maybe you should be looking at what you're doing wrong.

    As to the second paragraph, you really shouldn't put yourself down like that, its very self demeaning.

    Have a nice day
