    Question about Laptop Purchase Win8.1 with 1TB SATA vs Beloved Win7 No SATA?? I am again buying a computer. The VAIO with Win7 is dying after many years of faithful service. I have some Acers in sight but cannot decide between the Win8.1 with 1TB SATA vs Beloved Win7 No SATA but instead a regular hard drive. I just word-process and surf and store pics. Occasionally Skype. I have Win8 on my teeny computer and I cannot say I particularly like it, some people say I can turn the 8 into a 7 look and feel. But is it really...

    One of Microsoft's main goals with 'Threshold,' the next major version of Windows, is to win over Windows 7 hold-outs. Windows "Threshold," the next major version of Microsoft's Windows operating system due to hit around the spring of 2015, is coming into focus. And not too surprisingly, one of the Microsoft Operating Systems Group's main goals in designing and developing the coming operating system (OS) release — which may or may not ultimately be branded as "Windows 9" — is to try to make it more palatable to hold-out Windows 7 users. In order to do this, Microsoft is working...

    Windows had no updates for a few weeks. Yesterday there were somewhere around 17 that kicked in with automatic update.My Win 7Pro desktop handled it apparently with no problem; my laptop was something else.The laptop is running Win7 premium and has always updated with no problem. This time, I left it running overnight and it would turn itself off. The following morning after it booted, it went through the configuring process, I got a cursor, but there was no taskbar. Pretty much nothing can happen without a taskbar, either logging in, starting the browser trouble shooting or anything else. I...

    I have an HP laptop loaded w/Windows XP. I would like to put Windows 7 on there, but there are about 500 warnings - make sure you do this, don't do that - b/c I am going from XP to Win7. So my problem is: Can I partition my laptop hard-drive so that I can load Win7 on a separate partition... or would it be just as well to go ahead and remove XP after loading Win7 where XP is now? Memory space (RAM and Hard-drive) isn't an issue, neither is the processor. If I partition; what are the pro's...

    Yes, I'm logged in. Tanned, rested, ready, cheese, moose, sister.... I'm trying to help a senior citizen on a fixed income, in my neighborhood, with a computer issue. He bought an HP desktop back when Win 7 first was issued (I think Nov. 2009) and all was well until about a month ago. Now, whenever he boots up the PC, a message pops up saying his copy of Win7 isn't genuine. He's called both HP and Microsoft and each company blames the other. Most of the time, his phone calls go to India and he has a hard time understanding...

  • Wanna see how to use Win 7 UAC to pwn a PC?

    The Register ^ | 13 January 2009 | John Leyden
    White hat hackers have created a proof of concept demo illustrating how improved User Account Control (UAC) features in Windows 7 might be completely bypassed. The new Win7 UAC code-injection bypass can be used to elevate the rights of any command so that actions, even extreme steps such as thrashing a system, become an option. As such the demo goes beyond previous explorations of how UAC might be simply turned off. UAC was introduced in Windows Vista as a security feature designed to prompt users for permission before allowing applications to run. Criticised as intrusive and annoying by some, Microsoft...

    Excerpt - Microsoft is planning to ship its next major version of Windows--known internally as version "7"--within roughly three years, CNET has learned. The company discussed Windows 7 on Thursday at a conference for its field sales force in Orlando, Fla., according to sources close to the company. While the company provided few details, Windows 7, the next client version of the operating system, will be among the steps taken by Microsoft to establish a more predictable release schedule, according to sources. The company plans a more "iterative" process of information disclosure to business customers and partners, sources said....
