Hi piyushsaboo,

You should be able to go into disk maintenance in Windows 7 computer management.

the partition should show in the display - simply assign a drive letter to make it visible in Windows 7.

There have been some issues where Vista and XP didn't play nice together over restore points , which I believe has led M$ not to show other OS drives in Windows 7

A lot of members are using Avast Free, (avast! - Download antivirus software for spyware and virus protection), without issues although of course others are available

Hi,

As far as I know the kLite codecs work fine

Personally I'm using the Windows 7 Codecs from the same people who did the Vista Codecs, and I've not had any file not play as yet
