Windows 7: My Core i3-2120 doesn't support NX bit?

My Core i3-2120 doesn't support NX bit?


As in the title, my computer doesn't seem to support NX with a Core i3 2120. It's enabled in the BIOS and Intel ARK says Execute Disabled Bit is supported. I can't upgrade to newer versions of Windows because of this? Can you help? Currently running Windows 7 32 bit.

Yeah that's actually my post, but the guys over there got into an argument about whether Windows 8 is usable on a desktop computer instead of helping me.

Why doesn't Microsoft support USB3.0?
G'day, We all know that in order to use USB3.0 ports, we need to install 3rd party drivers (e.g. Etron, NEC etc.). Sometimes this can be a real pain in the bum. With the increasing popularity of cheap USB3 storage devices, it seems logical to me that Microsoft would write and support their own...
