Windows 7: Don't Like Windows 7

The only thing about Windows 7 which I don't like is the fact that it's so damn solid, there's nothing to fix or fiddle with any more

See you on the Vista forum - hopefully in better spirits.

I am sorry to hear about this, but quite honestly, Vista is great, but 7 far exceeds it.

Well, I don't know. It does funny things too. Just a few minutes ago it threw off my German keyboard setting for no reason at all. I was in the middle of the Forum. And similar nits and lice have happened already previously - I was always able to fix them. But some newbie might have had problems.

You need to install itunes in W7

W7 contains "learning code" (artificial intelligence, much like the Terminator, only better) and therefore protects itself against tampering. The degree to which it protects itself is varied depending on the "noobness" of it's user.

Yes, the T900 is playing tricks on you again

Being as your username is Pauls898, I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and assume that you're not John Connor. Therefore, there is nothing you can do, Windows 7 is taking over the world...
FUNNIEST. POST. EVER.

lol me too, i'm so used to doing stuff being fully aware if i don't do it just right it's hello BSOD at best and if im unlucky a complete reinstall of the os. with 7 it's yet to happen. either im suddenly getting better, or this thing is pretty stable.
