Windows 7 build 7057
 
 

I had random freezing problem with 7068 x86 (Asus F3T AP008), Screen freeze and I can't do anything, only hard reset... Tried different drivers (chipset, SATA, graphic) and no result. Now testing 7057 x86 and see if problem gone. Never had this issue with 7000 and 7048 x64.

We had many problems with this AV back in 2007 at work and from recent personal experience after removing virus/worms from computers people weren't even aware they were infected and had the latest version of Avast and virus definition to date installed. real world experiences > AV comparatives.
The only reason we used (I don't know if they still do as I don't work there anymore) to recommend Avast back then was because it was the only free AV with a French translation. I also used to recommend Avast because of that, but now that AVG 8 has a French translation for their free version, I recommend it to people who don't have much money to buy a yearly subscription for an AV, and strangely I don't get as many virus related problems calls as when I was recommending Avast.

Went back later and the game froze on me after less than 30 secs, rebooted and it did the same. Running an EVGA NVIDIA 8800 GT w/Xtreme 182.08 drivers...didnt have this issue w/7057. Also on boot up,I dont get network access each time. My last boot, I had to run a diagnose to get it running.... Really not sure if 7068 is to blame though. I did make changes via services.msc following Blackvipers recommendations, also updated my Linksys router firmware and finally made some changes in the msconfig file but since reverted back... hmmm, maybe a clean install will help darco
None of these problems that I posted have returned? Well the memory shows 7.4 usable but no more network probs or game freeze ups...strange

AVG doesn't have an option to perform boot-time scans to the best of my knowledge. That in my eyes alone is a large enough reason to pick Avast over AVG.

Not sure if this is a bug or just how Se7en is set up but....

When a new program in installed the start menu gets it's program icon update as it does (when new programs are installed) but, instead of the icon for the main program it attatches the icons for everything in the programs start menu folder (e.g. it will attatch every icon for MS Office 2007, including the tools folder). I've noticed this on every build of W7 so far and it's just annoying more than anything.

Thankfully it can be turned off via the start menu customisation.

Windows can't find Kodak camera drivers (CX7330 and V803). EasyShare is installed with XPSP2 compatibility. I'm running 7068 64 bit.

So far I've noticed my keyboard is failing to re-initialise after resuming from hibernation with this build.

With build 7068 I'm experiencing the same problem I had in Vista where folders don't keep the layout I set (list view, etc.).
