The Windows 7 thread

Recommended Posts

Ugh UAC.. Luckily the only downside to turning it off is that you have to be careful, but hey, you have to be careful anyway. So there is no downside. Unless you like using keygens or you watch those video's for which you have to install a "codec" (trojan!) - but then it's your own fault anyway!

I actually like this W7 UAC mode that is not yet off, but "less annoying". It's not too bad. Could do with some work though..

Ack, yeah, I use keygens sometimes...as for codecs, VLC ftw! :D

The Vista VBox Guest Additions don't seem to work with 7 without corrupting the screen image.

I'm using VirtualBox 2.2.2 and Guest Additions work just fine in Windows 7 RC.

Anybody who said you couldn't upgrade from the Beta to the RC is lying. All you have to do is change one value in one file on the ISO, and it'll upgrade just fine.

Not saying I suggest it though. Since I upgraded from 7057 to the RC, I've encountered a few more problems than normal. Better to do a clean install. To lazy to do it atm though.
