Its updated from reports we get from forum members. So if things now work when they didnt in beta, the list will get updated.

Understood, thanks <3
Can you remove that which is relevant only to the Beta or perhaps seperate it plz?

Errr? I meant that at the moment, it's difficult (read; impossible) to know which has actually been tested in the RC and which hasn't.

I'm just asking if you can have 2 segments in that first post;;

One segment for software that caused problems with the beta;
Second segment for software that is known / reported to cause problems with the release candidate.

After seeing Flash10 install on IE8 with the RC i'm tempted to say a fair amount of the problems that caused the above software to BSOD the beta, have been fixed in the RC.

I've got the hard drive space, so i'm kinda tempted to make some backup images and then test the list myself...

I think a better solution would be to close this thread down and start a new on for RC to avoid confusion.

AVG 8.0 caused issues but it seems AVG 8.5 is causing problems with not only W7 but Vista, XP and 2000 as well. I have been suggesting people avoid AVG 8.5 completely.

One of my customers runs an internet cafe, they've had massive problems with AVG 8 and several of the largely played games.

Mainly STEAM games but a couple of others were affected pretty badly too, it causes continuous crashing, low performance, corruption and worse.

Agree that avoiding Registry Defraggers on Win 7 for the time being is sensible.
I tried Glary & Advanced System Care free (sole OS is Win 7 64-bit) had to do a system restore in both cases.
