A few gripes

There are a couple things I don't like:
  1. Why are key executables missing from Windows 7 and previous and where to download such tools free: telnet, ssh, md5, sha1, sha256, and more
  2. Another Windows 7 annoyance: Right-click options for a folder when it is open from “Libraries”
  3. Windows 7 hangs when creating a new folder and hangs again when renaming it
  4. I have to run Messenger in Windows XP mode to hide the icon in the tray. (sorry no blog post)
  5. It takes me 50 seconds to log in sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. (sorry no blog post yet)

Did you upgrade 7 or clean install? Do you have the grunt to run 7?

I am sooo P***ed Off they have taken away my ability to disable Auto Arrange within folders I need to drag files around at will. That was such a basic function that I used everyday. I have unistalled Win 7 twice because of this. The only reason I have gone back is to take advantage of my RAM. They will have to fix this.... wont they?

I dont say that its windows 7 fault as the developer of the old software have not updated their products to work with win 7.
You can usually right click on the Programs Icon>Properties>Compatibility and then run in a different like Windows 95 or something . . .

I beg to differ. Just search this forum or Google "Disable Auto Arrange" Tell all those people it doesnt need to be fixed. I think whoever came up with the idea to Force Auto Arrange on us is broken
