    hi there, I wanted to know if there is a way to upgrade windows 7 build7000 (german) to build 7068 (english). Installer tells me it cannot be done but maybe there is a workaround. I don't care if my windows is german or english afterwards. any way to do this?

    Problem with windows explorer

    uh ... either a virus or just corruption. if you burned windows7 to disc boot from disc and use the repair options the disc gives you and see if that helps.

    how to boot into safe mode?

    so because you felt the need to make deep changes to the OS by changing the loading screen microsoft made a horrible OS? that's really interesting ... anyways, you probably killed your OS. put in the windows 7 disc and reinstall.

    Windows 7 Anyone played Dawn of War II Beta on 7?

    just wanted to say that I saw that the beta was available for free on steam. so I just downloaded it and it runs amazingly smooth - really well programmed it seems. I hope it still runs that smooth when the final graphics and dx10 are coming (=release), but it's really great.

    the operating system is not presently configured to run this application

    yep. you definetly did something very wrong here. I upgraded as well and all it should do is replace your WINDOWS folder - no more no less. your applications should remain where they are and run straight out of the box (office 2007 did work perfectly for me!)

    browser issue for win 7

    this has nothing to do with IE but rather with how the new taskbar works. to open another browser windows right-click the icon then select "internet explorer".

    Drivers in general

    Well, it's progress. I don't know the technical background, but I guess if windows XP drivers were sufficient they would have been used. in the end, this always happens when something like an OS is majorly changed or a new standard evolves - old stuff gets old :D Of course it's not that nice...

    but like I said, mts is only a VIDEO type, it is completly unrelated to the audio.

    kernel memory seems to be fine. please provide us more information, for example when it occurs and how often. also the BSOD should give you a .sys-file related to it

    Unauthorized programs

    really I don't know what you're talking about, this seems to be a problem with your computer not with windows 7. you seem to have caught spyware/adware/viruses that do this. windows does not come with any "weather program" nor does it install programs in the background nor is it possible to...

    updates and no support

    looool omg I laughed so hard when I read the first post of this thread. are you serious? omfg. here's the deal: 1) windows 7 is BETA. it's not even supposed to work perfectly 2) you will not get any updates because that was never the plan o.O don't install something without any knowledge...

    Torrent & winrar frozen

    I guess ironically by downloading the new built from torrent sites :p I read that it's available through torrent. It is said to be more stable than 7000, but as long as 7000 works fine for me I won't upgrade, especially because I don't know if it's legal. oh and btw, there is already a newer...

    Notification Area Icons

    it will not appear in your notification area. windows just keeps track of all the icons that appeared there so you can set the settings for programs currently not running. I think at some point it deletes items that havn't been used for a while, but it doesn't matter. anyways, as long as the...

    Taskbar problems

    isn't cs running as "hl.exe -game cstrike" ? so then it would be logical if it pops up as the Half-Life icon. same thing goes for team fortress. not sure about portal, I think that runs seperatly but is only using the HL2 engine.

    Auto window re-sizing

    btw just a side-note: you can also arrange windows by windows key + arrow. especially left/right arrow can be really useful if you need to use two applications side-by-side!
