Windows 7: Software to avoid

20 Jun 2009   #141

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

If anything I think its likely to be an earlier build. And maybe the software has also been updated.

Terra copy v.1.22 gives me problems. Reboots require a system restore which, removes it.

Win7 v.7229

Maybe someone that's running W7 32-bit can try and see if it works for a few hours? :)
Really? I have been using Windows 7 x64 Build 7077 for a long time now. Just joined the forum (sounded like a good idea) and BD 09 works great.All 3 of my desktops, my laptop, and my netbook (x86) run that build currently. BD 09 on all of them. I would change this to a caution for x86 versions only. My netbook has that issue sometimes but no other computer does except all others are running x64 versions of Windows 7. Upgrading to 7232 today though, so will see how that goes but had no problems with previous builds either.

I have tried Eudora myself briefly and it was ok for me.

GlaryUtilities works perfectly fine for me on x64

The Disk analysis, Undelete, Context Menu Manager,Startup manager, Uninstall Manager, Disk cleaner all work superbly.

I am not recommending other people to use registry cleaners - but if you must use one - the one in Glary is less hazardous than most, imo.

I haven't tried the Reg Defrag on the new Glary v2.13.069.

If that is the problem - probably worth a caution.

Returnil - vitual space, sandbox creator: FAIL

On my system;
  1. Set-up and run seemed just fine - downloaded and installed Opera. did a few other things. None of these should have shown any trace of when turning Returnil off and re-booting
  2. Re-booted, start up seemed slow (my imagination?), booted into windows, again it was slow, selected my user - NOTHING HAPPENED. Did not complete (or even start the load). Ditto selecting different user (Administrator).
  3. Booted into Safe Mode. Had to do a restore/or an uninstall of Returnil to get back into any user.
  4. Returnil, however had done its job - no sign of Opera etc.
So your experience may vary but I doubt it. Returnil a NO NO.

I suspect that all that fails is for the virtual space to properly dismount. But not prepared to risk it again.
