Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
Did you Click on the "For more information".

What version of W7 are you running -- Home Basic / Starter I think only allows a certain number of concurrent applications / processes to run.

I ran build 7000 (beta) for a week or so on my PC when it came out, but I never really had more than 3 programs running on it, so I don't know if that's the reason.

It would appear that you are running the first Beta version of Win 7. Your attachment indicates the version is from 2008, big problem. Also, your system is a little under powered since you are using a P4 processor with only 1 Gig of ram. Even with a 32 bit processor you need at least 2 Gigs of ram.

Upgrade your system and get a newer copy of win 7, then you won't have this problem. Good Luck, and Welcome to the Seven Forums.

As jimbo45 suggested, click on "click to see more info" on the popup.

Windows 7 Starter Edition is limited to a maximum of 3 running applications at any one time.

Type System Information into your start, search bar, click on System Information and take a screen shot of the System Summary that is provided and upload that for us.
