I guess you are right, even when using demanding apliccations I'm never run out of memory, and 7 still has the same speed as I have just boot up the PC... With XP I needed the memory tweker that came with Tune Up Utilities XD...

Well... I had to use it on my notebook (6 cell battery Acer Aspire 4535) in certain sutuations in which I was using the battery, but, since Aero takes more power (I don't know why...) I switch to basic, I get more time on the battery, so I can do some stuff that requires a bit of time, but the acceleration in some animations in windows gets odd... that's the only reason why I use Basic, in my Desktop I have Aero all the time and I love it XD.

XD I was fooled then... I guess that the start time decrease is due to SuperFetch doing its job then... I'll search for that info here, I still need more to learn

At best, these efforts will do nothing; at worst, they will actually slow your system down. Forget everything you learned about memory and the registry in XP. It does not apply to Win 7.
You're right too, I need to leave that bad habit (sometimes hard taking in mind that I used XP for about 3 years XD)

See ya!!

Dissapearing thumbnails in Corel X3. Never happened in XP. I know it's a Corel problem, but still it is a pain.

You can shut off the UAC if you don't like it.

If you post specific issues in the Gaming forum here - I'm sure that the guru's there will be able to help you with that

am not a gamer but gaming reliability in win7 is apparently excellent but you may need to tweak a few things

I wish Microsoft would build a documents menu function into the task bar icons. Let's say I have a bunch of shortcuts to (e.g.) my games. I would like a quick single click way of opening up a menu of those shortcuts (rather than going through the start menu, which takes longer). Nope. Can't do. So I use this handy little utility called 7stacks to do it. Which works fine but is buggy on occasion (like inexplicably suddenly deciding not to work). It would be nice to have folders in the task bar able to open up a menu of its contents (including sub-menus for sub-folders or shortcuts to folders).
