strange things in windows 7

    General discussion

  • Well there are some strange things happening with windows 7 in my pc.wanted to know if someone else are facing the same

    1)I installed some programs ( real tek high definition audio drivers , pigdin and someother tool bars and deleted their setup files) .When the pc restarts next time all those application are gone (weird).

    Next i install them and keep the setup file ,restart pc the applications are there (Strange does the setup file have anything to do)I havent seen anything like this.

    2)Its good that windows 7 medeia player added support for avi without external codecs,but when i play some video file it takes abt 5-6 sec to load. Is this normal? Vista used to respond quickly.
    Yeah i have 4 gb ram and using 64 bit windows 7.

    I have fingerprint reader on my laptop.But like in vista at the user password stage doesnt show the fingerprint icon???? But when i swipe my finger (which i have registered) it works ???

    I know this is beta but of these magnitute in beta stage?

  •  Hmm how did you install windows 7 I got an HP notebook came preloaded with Windows Vista 64bit and 4gb ram and all and fingerprint security what I did was did a clean recovery install then upgraded to Windows 7 64bit and no problems at all I honestly wouldnt even know it was beta no crashes or nothing no problems couple bugs which are annoying but other than that it works flawless

  • Check the action center; when I installed Norton it worked fine, until after a reboot.

    The Action Center told me that NAV was being blocked. Too bad the Action Center is on a "delayed start"; I was confused for a minute.

  • Hmmm.. idk lol id personally recommend upgrade I tried so many things and stuff and last week when I installed I was feeling lazy to manually install all drivers so I used HP recovery and after i was done and set all the factory condition I performed an upgrade I also did for because it would be easier for me to use HP recovery again if I ever wanna go back to vista or when official Windows 7 is released
