Questions

I have a couple of questions so I think it makes more sense to put em all in one topic as opposed to makin a topic each time.

so...

1. What anti virus suites can i install? Will Kaspersky 2009 work?

2. Is there a way I can make live messenger go to the system tray on the right like in Vista?

3. Am I the only one that hates this new start bar?

Thanks for any help

1. yes

2. Right click on the messenger application file and go to properties and change the compatibility to Vista and now it will sit in the system tray like in Vista.

3. Yes you are and if you want to change the apperance just right click on it go to properties and change it.

thanks for the info...

I was wondering, I really like the desktop wallpapers that come with Windows 7 on default. Where are they located, so that I can copy & past them?

A Few Questions
I've used Windows Media Center a couple times and like the look and feel and would use it if I had a couple of these things. 1. Is it possible to skin? 2. Is there a way to sync free tv shows and movies to it, or something along those lines? Thanks. ~Joshua~
