Windows 7: What's not in Windows 7 RC1

Signed Drivers selection

I would like (also) a selection for un-signed drivers to run.
If you install something like PeerGuardian on the x64 bit platform you have to run in safe mode to be able to use it.
I would rather have an option to allow specific ones to run at my option.

You don't have to run in safe mode. Just hit f8 at startup and run under "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
'
This should be an option in windows. I really have never cared if my drivers were signed or not :/

Though this is annoying... I can't find signed drivers for my ITE 8212 raid card, so I have to disable driver signature enforcement every time I start windows.

I have already tried the options, including the "bcdedit" form option and the PeerGuardian still does not work. It can see the net connections, but, it does not block the ones in the Block list.

This is also a form of safe mode, Vista and Win 7 have more safe modes settings than Win XP

I would like to see a native zoom function for extended/duplicate desktop. Right now I have to install the latest drivers from Intel (945GM) in order to use the 'Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile' app to slightly alter my s-video output.

If not, my tv display has 1/1.5 inch black lines right around the image which is rediculious as it's capable of 1024x768 (small, yes but it's 4 years old LOL) so there should be no need to zoom it.

Also, No.5 all the way, secondary taskbar would be genious

Hi loopster, what drivers are you using to get 60Hz and are you using the Native resolution?

Nr 2 still seems there in My version of 7100 on right mouse click on desktop or have I misread the post.

I posted another message about the error in Explorer not showing connected dvd / cd drives when expanding the Computer ICON (Virtual drives created by UltraISO are shown).
Double click on Computer and then you can see all the DVD/CD devices.


Cheers

I run peer guardian, it works for me by disabling driver enforcement in the boot menu. bcd edit no longer works after vista sp1.
