Windows 10 Pro x64

Nero 9 lite appears to cause my PC to freeze even when it's not being used, although Nero 9 in general works fine.

In view of this post We should consider Windows Blinds as a no-no.

W7 RC x64

I may be the only one who had this problem, but Apple bonjour kept causing w7.7100x64 to stop using the ethernet ports on my motherboard. I had to disable and reenable the ethernet ports every hour or so. When i disabled the bonjour service, the problem vanished.

AVG is on the list.
I think we're only interested in the most recent versions of software

XP MCE .... XP Pro 64 .... W7 U x64

FWIW ...
I had trouble with the AVG resident shield really slowing things down in earlier versions of W7.
The latest build I have , W7-7232x64 and the latest AVG updates, doesn't have this problem.

Mac OS X 10.8.1

Actually, almost every program that works with Vista works with Seven. I upgraded my main Vista computer, and I have yet to have any hardware or software incompatibilities or crashes. Guess the RC works 100% as long as your system surpasses Seven's requirments, which aren't extremely high compared to modern PCs.

Windows 7

Both SuperAntiSpyware and Advanced System Care work fine for me with Windows 7 Build 7137. Maybe it is one of those later builds that's causing the problem. I think you should try reinstalling and updating cause support for Windows 7 is already here.
