Hi there
What's wrong with the standard W7 Media Centre application -- it works with a lot of TV cards without you even having to install the manufacturers drivers either. It will also download the TV guide as well. I'm using a Hauppage TV card.

The only drawback of using the Windows 7 Media Centre is that if yoiu need to use say the Composite feature (AV in) then you will need a remote but for normal TV viewing it's fine - you don't need a remote.

If you have a SKY TV subscription in the UK you can also watch the SKY channels like SKY SPORTS etc.

For the US I'm sure equivalent subscription TV is also watchable via Windows Media Centre too.

OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
