Although I'm glad it's not in every window, woulda been nice to have the link on the desktop.

My first install was also an upgrade (had to see if it would work) and also had that problem with word. I then did a clean install and have no problem with word.

Always do a clean install guys. Upgrading between Windows 7 builds isn't a scenario that is supported, even if it looks like it "worked."

Slimy I know that I just wanted to see for myself what the 'upgraders' were talking about. Never again though!

Strangely enough although I agree with you my Upgrade Branch is running without any problems

My x86 install is following MS route so is still running 7000 and will only change when official RC is out.

On my x64 partition I've upgraded all available builds from 7000 up without any major issues. I did see a little sluggishness at the very start with 7057 but that disappeared after a couple of hours so assume it was just superfetch and the like.

this is so much so that I've been using the x64 almost exclusively as my day to day OS.

Will still advise a fresh install if possible but this is the first MS OS I'd be happy upgrading if that proved what a user required.

Fresh Install of x64 7057 on my desktop was a breeze and it is running very smoothly so far. The only problem I had was the known issue of desktop.ini showing up and that was taken care of as suggested in the other thread.

Is the Windows 7 backup reliable?
Hello, Until recently I backed up my files by just copying them to an external hard drive using the Seagate tool. This was nice, but took way too long. Now I have setup a Windows 7 backup. This took quite long the first time as well, but now it runs every Sunday evening and is finished...

How reliable is zipping in Windows 7 Explorer?
There have been times in the past when a zip file I created was corrupt (or became corrupt somehow). I encountered this either using WinZip or command-line zip, possibly in old Unix environments. To me, there is a risk in relying solely on zip archives and deleting the original unzipped files. ...
