    Windows 7 Keyboard help please

    Disregard, I was using my son's Microsoft 2000 keyboard until I could get one then when I plugged the new sidewinder x4 in it showed it as Sidewinder x4. I removed the Keyboard software in Control Panel, rebooted the machine and then loaded the Windows 7 64 bit software/driver from Microsoft's...

    Windows 7 Keyboard help please

    I am not much of a gamer (not good at it) and thought this might be a place to get the right answer. I needed a new keyboard and bought a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard for it's back lighting and features and have on irritation with it. The yellow (automatic profile) light comes on at random...

    Windows 7 Right Click, SEND TO

    Thanks, wasn't able to visually see it (guess it is hidden) worked beautifully once I copied your path, changed "YourUserName" to mine then pasted in the Start/Search window. It brought the Send To folder up and I put shortcuts in..... Thanks again, Gary

    Windows 7 Right Click, SEND TO

    On Windows XP I could go to Windows folder and to the SEND TO function and add something like "Drive F" so that when I wanted to save an item I right clicked on that file, selected Send To, then selected Drive F . Can this be done in Windows 7 and if so How please? Thanks, Gary

    Windows 7 Internet Explorer not remembering Login on many but not all sites

    Appears it was the security suite. Firefox and IE8 are now retaining and I will try other browsers now.

    Windows 7 Internet Explorer not remembering Login on many but not all sites

    Hi, thank you for your assistance here. Delete Browsing History on Exit box was and is never checked. I don't think you completed your thoughts in this sentence "Go along to the Advanced Tab and scroll down to the item under the Security section "Empty Temporary Internet..etc"" You don't say...

    Windows 7 Internet Explorer not remembering Login on many but not all sites

    I have Windows 7 64 bit OS. Presently I am using IE8 and many of the sites (but not all) does not show the popup asking if you want to save the User name and password. The ones that do work fine and the login information is retained but most of the guitar and bass forums I have been on for years...

    Windows 7 Windows7 freezes when idle

    I have the exact same problem as you. I am running an Asus Motherboard, Quad AMD CPU with cooling heatsink that keeps the CPU temp at 90 degrees F. I have an ATI Video Card and Corsair Memory. If my computer sits too long sometimes it freezes up and it takes a reboot of the computer to fix the...

    Windows Live Essentials Update

    Just downloaded it earlier tonight. It fixed a problem with Window Live Essentials 2009 of not being able to display .eml files. Love the interface, new look and functionality of this email program.

    Windows 7 Freeware Tweaking Tools

    I tried the EnhanceMySe7en. Pretty cool stuff but only free to try for 15 days then you must pay and register to keep using it. Not meaning any disrespect but that doesn't spell free to me...it says bait and hook.

    Windows 7 How would you rate Windows 7

    There is one thing that will help to make Windows 7 look more like XP Click on Start then Control Panel In the upper right hand corner you will see "View as Category" Click on the word Category and change to Large or Small Icons (your choice) Hope this helps, Gary

    Windows 7 How would you rate Windows 7

    I love Windows 7 64 bit. Excellent OS. Far better than Vista which was buggy and makes XP look obsolete.

    Windows 7 32-bit vs. 64-bit Comparison

    From my personal experience while not leaps and bounds faster than the 32 bit it is just enough to keep me happy, plus there is a very noticable affect on the CPU Temperature in that it runs cooler in the 64 bit mode as compared to the 32 bit. I had Vista and now Windows 7 and in my opinion...

    Windows 7 Win7 Freezes randomly

    Seems a number of us have experienced Windows 7 intermittantly and seamingly random freezes that have an ATI 4770 graphics chip on their video cards. It would seem since this was not a noticable problem with Xp OR Vista it must be something driver related. Mine has gotten better since a clean...

    Windows 7 Win7 Freezes randomly

    Richard, I have left my computer running or maybe in sleep mode just to come back and find it saying your computer shut down improperly and at one point even stating it needed to check my harddrive. I know there was not a power problem as my system is on a UPS system and no clocks in the house...

    Windows 7 Clean Install with Upgrade Version

    Thank you. That is correct I did not perform a second install before activating. In my eyes, it is the same amount of work installing Windows 7 upgrade twice as it would be to just install Windows Xp then the Windows 7 upgrade. If you do not agree please advise. Thanks Bubbalou

    Windows 7 Clean Install with Upgrade Version

    Previously I stated I performed a clean install on a clean harddrive from bootup. While it worked at that time, it did not this time. I booted up and loaded a Clean install of Windows 7 by unchecking "upgrade" and not entering the CD Key until I decided to activate. This did not work two days...
