    First of all, if you don't want to hear me bitch, please leave now.

    1. when I leave my CPU on for a while (around 2-3 days?) and it has an update that installs during shutdown, whenever I pull it out of standby, it AUTOMATICALLY SHUTS DOWN, INSTALLS UPDATES, AND RESTARTS WITHOUT SYSTEM RESTORE!!!!!
    2. on Windows Explorer, you CANNOT TURN OFF AUTO SORT LIKE IN XP!!!
    3. also on Windows Explorer, you CANNOT CUSTOM-SORT FILES LIKE IN XP, 98, OR 95!!! On a sidenote, it takes ALOT to get me to bitch about how something is WORSE than Windows 95 or 98!!! Think about that.
    4. On Internet Explorer (and firefox?) HTML RANDOMLY DOESN'T APPEAR RIGHT!!!!!
    Example:

    Rollover Image:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!--
    Browser = false ;
    if(navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape") != -1)
    { if( (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("3.") != -1) || (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("4.") != -1) )
    Browser = true}
    if(navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE") != -1) { if( navigator.appVersion.indexOf("4.") != -1)
    Browser=true}
    if ( Browser == true) {
    roll1= new Image();
    roll1.src = "http://media.strategywiki.org/images/b/b3/Smw_magikoopa.gif";
    roll2 = new Image();
    roll2.src = "http://www.mariowiki.com/images/9/98/Kamek_YIDS.png";
    }
    function x05(place, imgName) {
    if (Browser == true) {
    document[place].src =eval(imgName + ".src");
    } }
    //-->
    </SCRIPT>

    <A HREF="YOUR URL OR FILE NAME" onMouseOver="x05('MarioMagikoopaRolloverSmwSmw2:YI1','roll2')" onMouseOut="x05('MarioMagikoopaRolloverSmwSmw2:YI1','roll1')"> <IMG SRC="http://media.strategywiki.org/images/b/b3/Smw_magikoopa.gif" NAME="MarioMagikoopaRolloverSmwSmw2:YI1" HEIGHT="60" WIDTH="50" BORDER="0"></A>

    Need I go on?

    5. If you need help with an old file, you're screwed because WINDOWS 7 ONLY SUPPORTS HTML FORMAT, WHEREAS XP SUPPORTS BOTH THE ORIGIONAL WINDOWS HELP FORMAT AND HTML HELP FORMAT!!!!! I HAD TO WASTE 3 HOURS OF MY LIFE JUST TO DOWNLOAD A DLL TO RUN WINDOWS HELP FORMAT!!!
    6. AFTER DOWNLOADING IT, IT TOOK A HALF AN HOUR TO LOAD BECAUSE OF THE CRAPPY LOAD TIME!!!
    7. AFTER WASTING 3 AND A HALF HOURS OF MY TIME, I FOUND OUT THE PROGRAM WASN'T COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS 7!!!!!!! AND I CANT SWITCH BACK TO MY XP BECAUSE I NEED INTERNET AND THE ETHERNET PORT IS FRIED!!!
    8. Upon buying a new computer, I was pissed to find that ALL WINDOWS COMPUTERS COME STANDARD WITH WINDOWS 7!!!!!! AAGGFFDFDHFGSFGGH!!!!:mad::mad:

    Thanks for shouting at the top of your lungs and in red too.

    If you need help with these issues ask nicely for it.

    If your p*ssed of with Win 7 complain to MS.
    None of us here had anything to do with creating Win 7.

    BTW, in regards to your poll I vote 0.

    I have to vote 0. Win 7 has been the best OS I have been around since ol Windows 98SE.

    I have removed most of the nonsense that you have illicited in this thread. The caps lock button is there for a reason, and it usually doesn't involve trolling forums. It is unfortunate you are having problems or dislike Windows 7, however, we have asked you to please express your grievances in a civilized manner. There is not much censorship on this site, so of course some people are not pleased with the OS. Also, your large posting of HTML and Javascript makes no sense whatsoever. If you can see it from the point of everyone who viewed this post prior to the "scaling down" of the text size and removal of the bleeding red colors, we are left to wonder: Is there a problem between the desk and the chair, or is it really Windows 7?

    I must say, that if you do have problems with 7, you should try to articulate those problems properly, and doing that could take some time. Try to craft out a better post, or edit the existing one so that it makes sense to us. Most of what you have written makes it appear you are just trolling the site...

    P.S. I also renamed the thread from "Wendows 7 complaints" to "Windows 7 complaints". Please try to articulate yourself better and then we can work with you to perhaps solve some of the problems you have with the OS. Not joking with you either. This is a site thats all about support and helping members help themselves.

    I will wager that most of his problems are not between the chair, mouse and keyboard, but between his ears in a cavernous space.
    I personally never had problems of any magnitude with XP or Vista.
    I really love W7
    I was dual booting between 7 and Vista, but was on 7 so much I eliminated Vista. I do have an image of it if I ever want to use it again.
