Hi, Mike Nash here. In late October I announced the Beta of Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 - beginning with a small group of Technology Adoption Program customers. This week we're opening up the beta to a broader audience. Starting today, MSDN and TechNet subscribers will have access to the Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 Beta to begin testing.
Beginning Thursday Dec. 4th, we will be making the Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 Beta available to everyone through a Customer Preview Program (CPP). The CPP will launch on TechNet and be available to anyone interested in trying out this service pack. The CPP is intended for technology enthusiasts, developers, and IT Pros who would like to test Service Pack 2 in their environments and with their applications prior to final release. For most customers, our best advice would be to wait until the final release prior to installing this service pack.
For those of you who choose to test this service pack, we encourage you to install the beta as soon as you can; your feedback will help us to ship a solid and stable service pack for Windows Vista.
Windows Vista SP2 builds on the solid foundation of Windows Vista SP1, and represents our ongoing commitment to Windows Vista today. Windows Vista SP2 includes all of the updates that have been delivered since the release of Windows Vista SP1, and incorporates improvements discovered through automated feedback from the Customer Experience Improvement Program (where users voluntarily opt-in to sending Microsoft error reports from their systems). In addition to these updates, SP2 also includes support for new types of hardware and emerging standards that will grow in importance in the coming months. For specific changes in Windows Vista SP2 - see my previous post on Windows Vista SP2 or check out the notable changes document.
Your feedback from testing will help us deliver the highest quality release possible. As of today, we are tracking to ship Windows Vista SP2 in the first half of 2009.


Hello, and I have the unlucky pleasure of getting another volume error in my hard drive. I've already had this happen when I was running on VISTA, and had to re-install it, but I really don't want to have to re-install 7as well. My problem is that when I scan for hard drive errors, my computer never schedules a scan for errors when I re-start the machine. Is there some why I can do this myself? Can I create a hot launch disc for Windows 7 so I can scan the hard disc?

Would making a recovery do the trick? I noticed the option under recovery options.

Hi at all,
I have a notebook hp nc8430 and now I have installed windows 7 enterprise full. I have a problem with connect card on PCMCIA and SD Reader. Into Hardware Profiles I have some devices in warning and are Texas Instruments PCI GemCore based SmartCard controller and controller memory storage. I have installed this drivers for this HP Compaq nc8430 Notebook PC*-* Texas Instruments Media Card Reader Driver - HP Business Support Center
but the problem persist and I cannot use pcmcia and smart card reader. I just have launch setup.exe in Windows Vista compatible and administrator. If I update the driver from Hardware Profiles (and not launch setup.exe) I have error of Access Denied(I am the administrator of the machine and I am the owner of the directory where are stored the update).
How can solve it?

Issue with Windows 7 32/64 bit and Windows 2008 R2 environments

Hi Friends,
I am facing issue when I am trying of open OSK.EXE (On-Screen Keyboard) through ShellExecute() in both Windows 7 32/64 bit and Windows 2008 R2 environments. OSK is not getting popped up after executing the command.
My source code’s statement follows:
Statement1: ShellExecute ( pWnd, "open", "C:WINDOWSsystem32osk.exe", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
Note (FYI):
(1) If I execute following statement2 by putting OSK.EXE in C:, then On – Screen Keyboard is getting popped up.

Statement2: ShellExecute ( pWnd, "open", "C:osk.exe", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
(2) Statement1 is successfully executed on XP, W2K Server and Vista with expected behavior.
(3) If I try to get the last error through GetLastError() after executing the Statement 1, “Operation has been performed successfully” is translated from the return value of the GetLastError().
(4) On my Windows 7 machine, UAC is disable.
(5) I am running ShellExecute() function by logging through the login ID having added to administrator group.
Please guide me for executing the Statement1.
Thanks in advance.

I recieve a PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILURE. I am experienced in computer truobleshooting with the exception of Blue Screens. Thus, this is my first post in ANY windows troubleshooting forum. I am looking for ANY help so please read all of this since I don't really know what information is critical so I am getting detailed.

I was trying to get Halo 2 for Vista to work on Windows 7 x64 Ult custom build (By trying the following: Halo 2 Windows 7 (workaround) - "System Cannot Find the Path Specified" or "LIVE gaming on Windows failed to initialize" - Games for Windows Live ).
I also unistalled an unrecognized USB driver from device manager.
After that failed to fix my Halo 2 problem I updated my GPU card driver and rebooted my PC.


After "Starting Windows" screen appears for roughly ten seconds a "PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILURE" BS appears. The computer reboots (after about 1.5 seconds) after the Memory Dump reaches 100. I do not get any option to boot into safemode or with "Last known working configuration" but I DO get the options to either start the start-up repair or reboot windows normally.

If I reboot normally the problem repeats, trapping me in a boot loop. So I launch start-up repair.

I tried "Startup Repair" as well as System Restore (I tried ALL of my restore points) but get an error telling me "Windows cannot repair this computer automattically" or "System restore was not successful", respectivaly. I can then choose to send information about this problem or not but I get no further troubleshooting options.

FORTUNATLY, I was able to boot to desktop AFTER using the command prompt to xcopy a "bootcat.cache" file from my HP Laptop (Also running 7 x64 Ult.) into my build's system32CodeIntegrity folder in:
- C: (The DISKPART > "list volume" command says this is a 100MB system reserve partition of my main HDD)
- D: (actual 931GB partition of my main HDD that is my Local Disk [I do not know why it is D: and not C: but before this it was E: and my CD-ROM drive was D: so it gets reassigned each time I reboot. [I have even tried the DISKPART > "assign letter=C" command to reassign letter C to this drive but it doesn't seem to help or hurt anything since my Local disk was not C in startup repair but is back to C: now that i have booted]). And
- X: (I do not know what this is but it was the default drive when I entered the command prompt [I believe the default was X:sources or something like that]). I exit command prompt and reboot.


Then and ONLY then will the computer boot to my desktop. A few drivers, such as my GPU driver must be reistalled (I assume this because these drivers were not on my HP's bootcat.cache?).

So besides some missing/inactive drivers I have full function of my PC. BUT WHEN I REBOOT THE PROBLEM COMES BACK AND I B.S. AGAIN. So I performed my fix again and booted to my desktop once more. I have now started backing up my files in preparation an imminent clean install (I am willing to try ANYTHING to avoid this!). While files are backing up I am saving Application and System event logs. (PM me for the logs). Running and screen-shotting CPU-Z and posting this thread.

I do not know what I should try now that I am back at my desktop. ANY help at all will make my day.

Thank you all!


Hi, I'm not incredibly tech savvy, and am having troubles installing Windows 7 on my laptop. I purchased the software, downloaded the .iso file from Microsoft's site, then burned the .iso file to a disc. Once on the disc it showed a few different folders and a setup option. I launched the setup option, which brought up the install window for windows 7. I chose clean install because upgrade is not an option for the current version of vista that I have, and while it is copying the files, after about 3% it gives me the error code 0x80070241 and says something about not being able to copy all of the needed files and that some of them may be corrupted. I don't know if this is a problem with my computer or with the disc that I've burned. If anyone knows a good way to fix this problem, please let me know. This is becoming frustrating for me.


Windows 7 upgrades fail because of Intel driver

The best laid plans of mice and voles
By Nick Farrell

MICROSOFT MUST BE FURIOUS after software upgrades from Vista to Windows 7 failed on some machines because they had an Intel storage driver.
For months before the launch the Vole worked with hardware makers to make sure that drivers working under Windows 7. It wanted to avoid a repeat of the Windows Vista fiasco, which was caused by the operating system shipping with too few working hardware drivers.
Most of the time this worked however according to Microsoft, there are users that experienced failures when upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 because of an Intel storage driver.
When people try to upgrade they get a an error messsage: "$windows.~btwindowssystem32driversiastor.sys. Status: 0xc0000359. Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt."
The machine would subsequently be rolled back to Vista and after a while the user would want to throw something out of the Window.
What is causing the fault are incorrect versions of the iastor file that are referenced during the move to Windows 7. Microsoft hasn't produced an update or hotfix designed to resolve this particular issue yet.
Users have to manually fix the problem using a fairly complex upgrade which will require some fairly brave person to try.
The Vole tells us to:
"1. Access Driver Repository Folder under C:WindowsSystem32DriverStoreFileRepository and move any folders that contain the file: iastor.inf to a temporary location.
2. Search for references to iastor within the oem inf files in the c:windowsinf folder - Example Command: findstr /i /c:"iastor" %windir%/inf/oem*.inf.
3. Make a note of the oem##.inf files reported where ## is a numeral. Move the oem##.inf and corresponding oem##.pnf from c:windowsinf folder to a temporary folder.
4. Delete $~bt, $~LS and $~Upgrade folders from c: drive if they exist
5. Download and install the latest version of the iastor.sys driver from Intel website on the Vista machine.
6. Start the Windows 7 upgrade process. It should complete successfully now."
Yikes. Hopefully there will be a patch soon. It is not clear how many people are affected by the bug. We guess we will hear all about it soon. µ

My wife's computer, running Vista, was running erratically and driving her the up the wall. I have for two years been telling her that the major problem was Vista and let me upgrade the computer to Windows 7. This weekend she agreed so I performed the upgrade with no apparent issues. While checking the system out I discovered that when in Firefox the number row of keys on the keyboard would not work but they work fine in other applications. The keyboard worked fine on my PC. I tried to remove and reinstall Firefox and I got another problem in that it and other non-Microsoft applications would not launch from the desktop giving me an "No such interface supported" error statement. Guessing that the registry was fouled up causing the non-Microsoft applications from launching, I downloaded but you probably are ahead of me in that it would not launch giving me the "No such interface error." How do I get around this roadblock? I'm in the doghouse by taking her barely functional computer and making it a mostly non-functional computer.

In a fast paced world, three years after Windows 7, Microsoft’s upcoming successor OS, Windows 8 remains a hard sell. Does that mean it is not worthy of the buzz and hype?

Browse a tech magazine lately? Check out a news site about technology? Chances are, you will read something about Windows 8. Just two weeks ago, Microsoft released the Consumer Preview for Windows 8. It hasn’t even hit store shelves yet, and people are already complaining. This is nothing new in tech circles: Everyone is resistant to change. Sometimes, that resistance to change can be helpful, and even good feedback for developers. Other times, it can result in a shouting match that just remains unwinnable. But like many things, thinking in absolutes is often deconstructive, and seldom objective. Business men and women will judge Windows 8 with business acumen; savoring each bit of financial data and sales indicators to prove a point about the new system. Decision-makers in IT circles will look at security and reliability before weighing in with a more structured cost-benefit analysis that deals in infrastructure. Home users are likely to place more value on aesthetics, performance, and ease-of-use as major factors in the upgrade model.

It is the middle of the month: March 15, 2012 to be precise. It is hard to believe that already three years have gone by since the release of Windows 7. Many IT business people, including server administrators, are just starting to become acclimated with the Windows 7 client environment, its off-shoot productivity software, and the Windows Server 2008 family of products, including Windows Server 2008 R2. In one worldview, short and steady wins the race. While more tech savvy companies clearly saw the benefit of migrating quickly upon release, many SMBs, mid-range companies, and home users remain in a Windows XP limbo – either due to the economic mess that most of the world is dealing with, budgetary constraints, or simply a lack of knowledge about how to port all of their important data over to a Windows 7-based network. But as time has gone on, these groups are a minority, for as much as is known. While much of the third world may still be using Windows XP, and even older systems, it is difficult for that data to be chomped up and read by skeptics and true-believers. In agrarian, rural, and largely undeveloped lands, Internet access still remains a commodity that is seldom traded, and where mobile phone companies continue to make inroads.

Back here in the west, the difference is noticeable in how a company conducts its business, especially when you walk into one running Windows XP and Server 2003. It is not uncommon to see pending Windows Updates on every workstation, versus an up-to-date Windows 7 network. If the IT tasks are outsourced, how that time is spent, and for what purpose, will likely face scrutiny and prioritization. For instance, the administration of an important database may take precedence over the application of client operating system updates. Many system administrators may simply ignore, or be unaware of, the capability of domain controllers and file servers to push out updates across the internal network using WSUS. In many offices, however, you will be likely to find a hybrid network. With a lack of EOL policy and strategy, many businesses end up with certain departments stuck between Windows XP and Windows 7, and that difference takes place when they purchase new hardware – not due to a timetable, but out of necessity. A hybrid network of these systems is not exactly the best medicine for either a business or group of home users who rely on their Windows computer systems day-to-day activities, but it may be better than nothing.

A Trip to Seattle: Home to 90’s Alternative Music, Starbucks Coffee, and Microsoft
On April 1, 2011, I received the Microsoft MVP award for Windows Expert – Consumer. It was a real treat to know that Microsoft had recognized my contributions in the form of setting up forum websites and participating in them. I was certainly very thankful for the award, and presumably happy to know that I could continue to do what I do best, as that is why I received it. I wasn’t the first to be recognized by Microsoft for my contributions to my own website: Ross Cameron (handle: kemical) became one of our first Microsoft MVP’s. One of our former members, Greg (handle: cybercore), had contributed thousands of helpful posts on and was nominated. As time went by, we were fortunate enough to see other MVP’s join our website, including Shyam (handle: Captain Jack), Pat Cooke (handle: patcooke), Bill Bright (handle: Digerati), and Ken Johnston (handle: zigzag3143). These people are experts in their field and genuinely reflect an attitude of altruism towards people. Such traits are hard to find, especially over the Internet, and in a field that is driven by individual competitiveness that forces group cohesion as a necessity. I started communicating with one MVP as a result of a disagreement, but have since gained an enormous amount of respect for her: Corrine Chorney, the owner of SecurityGarden. When I made a video that contained an error or two, about ESET Smart Security, I was suddenly contacted by a fellow MVP: Aryeh Goretsky. These types of people live and breathe technology, and thus, even having a brief e-mail exchange can be a breath of fresh air. It becomes recognizable and clear to me that Microsoft’s selection process and choices for those who receive this award is hardly based on pure number crunching, but on gauging a person’s enthusiasm and demonstrated expertise in a field. Understanding how that translates to a much broader audience is compelling. To me, this is a good thing, as it shows that even one of the world’s most successful corporations, in this case Microsoft, perhaps in one of the few acts of selflessness that one could expect from a multi-national corporation, finds customers who have made a mark in information technology and celebrates that. I become hopeful that they recognize the countless others who make contributions on a day-to-day basis. With half a dozen certifications under my belt, and nearly a decade and a half of experience, I am but one person. And for every Microsoft MVP I have met, their dialogue always translated into real energy and enthusiasm. How many countless others have not received an award, or merit, for helping someone “fix their box”? I suspect that number is in the millions. This in no way belittles the award, because to me, such an award really is about helping others.

Often times helping others is giving someone your opinion: even if your opinion runs contrary to running a system consisting purely of Microsoft software. One example is Windows Live: I have a fundamental disagreement about how I chose to use Windows Live, and whether or not I want Windows Live Services embedded into my operating system experience: something that home users with Microsoft-connected accounts will notice almost immediately upon starting the OS. I do not, in any way, undervalue the development of these services, or their potential market value to consumers. I simply have a difference of opinion. And this should no way diminish someone’s ability to receive an award. I am not an employee or pitch man for Microsoft products, but someone who conveys his own thoughts and expertise in that area. To me, the award would have little value if I was expected to tout the benefits of using Microsoft Security Essentials over a paid anti-malware suite. I think that even the developers of the software themselves would take exception to misinformation. And to Microsoft’s credit, they have asked me nothing of the sort. To me, that is a fundamental sign of an award that encourages community participation and expertise in a given area of technology, from a company that is now expected to set standards on the world stage.

Not everyone made it to this summit: For many of them Redmond, WA is far, far away. For me, living in New York, that also rings true. But it sure are the people who make it worthwhile – even when you’ve never met them in person, the way they behave and conduct themselves, towards you, speaks volumes. And so I’ve learned a lot from every Microsoft MVP that I have met – both online and off; in a five minute conversation, or a fifteen hundred word e-mail.

During the Microsoft MVP Global Summit in the Seattle-Bellevue-Redmond area, I had the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting and eclectic groups of people in information technology that I’ve encountered in years. Truly, the revolution taking place around technology in Seattle, and its famous campus grounds located at 1 Microsoft Way in Redmond, is in no way limited to laboratories that are seldom, if ever, open to the public. Quite to the contrary, acclimating with Microsoft’s extensive community of worldwide supporters and individual contributors doesn’t just result in hearing success story after success story (although that is fun too). Of the thousands of people invited to the event, from all over the world, including Japan, Asia, Indochina, North America, Brazil, and the world at large, I found myself welcomed by a remarkable group of individuals. These men and women were of no traditional demographic one would think of – in fact quite the opposite was at hand. At 29 years old, I met kids younger and more successful than myself, who had generated their own start-up firms. I also met much older men and women, who witnessed the transformative nature of technology and got involved, one way or the other. These men and women came from all walks of life, but I am reminded, in particular, of a few of them I met who had a real impact on me. As someone who had come so far to be a part of this event, I did feel uneasy knowing that I was there alone. The individuals I met at the summit were polite, courteous, helpful, and informative. It was not difficult to see why they are considered experts in their field.

Whether the issue for them was something simple, like MP3 players like Zune, the Xbox, MS SQL, or the Microsoft Windows family of client and server products, this entire network of community supporters really outlined why Microsoft continues to have far-reaching success around the world. The level of enthusiasm for their technologies is clear, concise, and breaks down the traditional barriers of race, color, nationality, and gender inequality.

At that summit, I was witnessing not just what technology would be capable of doing in the future, but as a first timer, I got to see with my own eyes what it had done for just about every participant I was able to strike up a conversation with. Having been severely jet-lagged and exhausted from my trip, I travelled all the way from New York City to Seattle-Tacoma airport in a few hours. Having travelled, for the first time, outside of my own time zone, suspended at 38,000 feet in the air, I found myself dizzy, drowsy, and often times downright sick once I got off the airplane. It was something really unfamiliar to me, but in a way, strange thoughts began to fill my head. I realized that in Seattle, it nearly almost always rains once per day. There is certainly less sunlight there than in New York. Perhaps this lack of sunlight had inadvertently made people more likely to turn on a computer and create some kind of innovative programming. It was a silly thought, but staring at the horizon in the distance, I could not help but think about Mount Rainier, Lake Washington, and the land I was now interconnected with. In many cases a landmark home to science fiction, Seattle’s own Space Needle is a national treasure. A marvel of all aerodynamic ingenuity west of the Mississippi River valley, the Space Needle is essentially a giant UFO-shaped tower that is capable of housing restaurants, sight-seeing tours, and shines a giant beam of light that was part of the original design, but was only recently added.

Perhaps, I thought to myself, this is how the term “cloud computing” had caught on. With a lack of major sunlight ever permeating this area, to my knowledge, and with rain and humidity always on the horizon in a constant lake effect, it suddenly made sense to me how the area had become famous for its murky alternative rock grunge music in the 1990’s, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the evangelical computer programmers, and a number of activities, like concerts and music performances, that are usually held in-doors! In a way, it all made sense to me now, and I spent a great majority of my time taking in the sights, sounds, and hospitality of an entirely different area of the country. The most populous city in the northern United States is also home and origin to Starbucks. It all began to make sense to me that it would be here, more than anywhere else in the USA, that they would need fresh coffee beans from Jamaica available at a moment’s notice. And as humorous and sophomoric as that may read, I still think there is some truth to this.

This summit was my first experience with my Microsoft MVP award for Windows IT Expert – Consumer on the road. It was certainly a bumpy ride, and I did not take advantage of all of the event activities I could have. Windows product group experts and Microsoft employees were available, nearly from the break of dawn to the dark hours of night, to provide on and off-campus sessions to enthusiastic individuals. Looking back, the path was worthwhile. While most of the people I met had embedded themselves in this event for many years, I was certainly a newcomer. Determined to act the part, I tried my best to overcome the massive jetlag I had encountered, and vowed to myself to never eat sushi after getting off of a six hour flight again. Who could not be anxious when arriving in such a foreign place compared to the east coast of the USA? I have certainly flown and driven up and down that area most of my life, visiting nearly all of the north and south, but I had no idea what to expect near Redmond. An acquaintance of mine from Los Angeles was able to help me deal with the insomnia and time difference that comes with this type of travel, and she probably helped me in a way that she still doesn’t know – all from a few text messages. I am constantly reminded that technology itself has made us all interconnected, no matter where we are. At the Microsoft MVP Global Summit, what I did find were individuals, many of whom who had a certain selflessness about them, and a desire, above all things, to learn more, experience more, and help even more.

Upon immediately striking up a conversation with anyone at the event, it was absolutely easy to see how these men and women achieved recognition of excellence from Microsoft. While many young people who attended the event had created innovative ways to help others by setting up websites or studying the inner-workings of the Microsoft entertainment platform, others had been part of the commercial information technology circles and big businesses that have changed the environment of the Internet. I even caught a glimpse of two individuals who appeared to be working for a former web host that one of my websites was hosted on. These businesses, powered by ingenious individuals, have swept the Internet. And while many people appeared to be there as part of a corporately backed package, it was clear to me that most others had made a name for themselves by creating their own platform for innovation and success. Most important, and pronounced to me, was that each and every person there reached that point through acts of selflessness -- for helping others. In each and every instance, you could go around the area and know that you were surrounded by people who could speak your language: whether that be ASPX, XML, C, PHP, JavaScript, or BBCode. While a person there from Asia may not have had any comprehension of what I was talking about if he did not speak English, if I showed him Process Monitor in Windows, I could probably communicate with him on some technical level.

To contrast that, I came home to an environment back in New York where the Windows 8 Consumer Preview had just been released. It was no surprise to me that Windows 8 had been getting some slag for replacing the Windows Start Orb and Start Menu with the Metro User Interface (Metro UI). Windows 8 still has some major feature improvements going for it. This early in the game, there is no question that many of these features have likely gone undocumented, exist under-the-hood, or simply have not reached a stage in development that was acceptable for the Consumer Preview. First, it is important to note that the Consumer Preview is as much of a beta release for public testing as it is a marketing tool for Microsoft. When we examine how this has been released to the public, it is not hard for me to conclude that it is also a way to gauge public reaction to the first serious and inherent differences to the way the Microsoft Windows GUI has been presented – ever. Other operating system releases have taken the idea of the Start Menu and added search capabilities and refined a core concept. Slowly, but surely, we see an improvement that has occurred over time, with the look and feel of Windows remaining consistent over the ages.

The Consumer Preview Was Released To Test Your Reaction; Not Just The OS

In fact, this is a public release of Microsoft Windows to appear in limelight, in what is essentially a beta (and presumably near release candidate stage), with some features either completely omitted or broken. But not all is lost for Windows 8. There are some under-the-hood changes that show promise. I am not a Windows developer or programmer (most of my tinkering involves Linux, C, HTML, PHP, and JavaScript), but I can start to appreciate the level of changes that are being made on a core level as I get more time to become acquainted with this system and allow various whitepapers and documents to enter my lexicon.

Those looking to upgrade, or who will receive the upgrade already as part of a plan, like Microsoft VLK Software Assurance, will reap some benefits by making the upgrade to Windows 8. Businesses that have been around long enough will be familiar with creating and following a comprehensive End of Life (EOL) cycle plan. Such plans are usually coordinated between an enterprise administrative team that manages the day-to-day changes of internal certificate authorities, domain controllers, and mail servers. This group usually (and hopefully) has the training and forethought necessary to look at the official Microsoft release timetable, as well as the support for commonly used hardware and software. Assessments can be made to better understand how, where, when, and why this software and hardware is deployed, and under what conditions it is upgraded or phased out entirely. Not only does this level of planning bring clarity to what could otherwise become a source of enormous administrative overhead, but it also helps to mitigate the risk associated with allowing systems to continue running under-the-radar and without proper security auditing. Under such a scenario, businesses may choose to have their internal IT department perform network-wide audits of all systems. It is an affordable alternative to bringing in an outside specialist, and comparisons with Microsoft’s official support timetable can help make the transition to new hardware and software – as well as what comes with that -- such as training and significant infrastructure investment -- a more conceivable possibility.

Home users can depend on a much more simple approach, and that is to monitor requirements needed for tasks like school, work, and entertainment, while keeping up-to-date with Microsoft’s in-band and out-of-band security patches. As mentioned previously, Microsoft already publishes a roadmap to indicate when mainstream support, and even updates, will be terminated for their operating systems. Combining all of these ideas together, it is not unreasonable to come to a conclusion that one can continue using Windows 7 for a few more years without much difficulty. When the time comes, an upgrade will be made easy, as the large system manufacturers and independent system builders will, no doubt, bundle OEM copies of the system after RTM (“release-to-manufacturer”). On the side, one could begin to upgrade a small office or a home network with new computers when the need arises, in order to take advantage of the new feature set that is sure to be setting a precedent going forward.

Very large enterprise networks usually already make use of proprietary, custom software and hardware. Those businesses can begin the transition planning in phases, and will have access to fully licensed Microsoft support personnel who work in the corporate sales division of the company. Those resources can be accessed by standard enterprises (approx. 200 clients systems) and by mid-range offices (approx. 50-200 client systems) using Microsoft Gold Certified Partner program members that also specialize in employee training, resource management, and all-inclusive maintenance plans. Even a few well-trained and certified IT consultants and managers could handle a migration and post-migration scenario with the right level of planning and funding.

Stay positive, here is some deductive reasoning as to why not all is lost, and how the feature improvements that Windows 8 customers will benefit from may actually start to appear after the OS hits store shelves. (The kind of stuff that may not be readily apparent in the incomplete Consumer Preview version):

Virtualization Scores A Win

Hyper-V Virtualization included in Windows 8 will allow you to take your computing experience to the next level. If you are not entirely enticed by the prospect of running Windows 8, or still have a co-dependent relationship with legacy applications, Hyper-V will be sure to help you in that area; much like Microsoft Virtual PC brought Windows XP onto the desktop for many Windows 7 users. While Hyper-V isn’t about to take the throne away from VMWare’s line of virtualization products just yet, especially Workstation and ThinApp, expect to see the inclusion of Hyper-V as an experience that has the potential to compartmentalize the installation of applications – even really old ones. With Hyper-V and Metro as platforms likely to be directly controllable and manageable from Windows Server 8, IT admins can rejoice at the concept of virtualizing what is left of the desktop – and preventing inappropriate use of computer system resources at work. With full control of Metro and Hyper-V under Active Directory, system management is about to get a whole lot easier. Windows 8 fits as the one OS that office managers can control directly from Windows Server 8 without remorse. Limiting access to the desktop will reduce headaches for employees who may only be obligated to launch specific company-approved Metro apps.

Metro: The User Interface Revolution
Metro UI will not be alien to anyone who is old enough to remember Microsoft Encarta, or to any youngster who has already owned a Windows Phone. I still remember using Microsoft Encarta’s slick navigation system to look up John F. Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural address. This was one of the first times I saw decent video footage in an encyclopedia. Back in those days, everyone was on dial-up, and an encyclopedia like Encarta was the be-all and end-all of factoid finding for non-academics and kids still in grade school. So expect Metro-powered applications, programmed in C++, C#, HTML, JavaScript, and even VisualBasic. This programming platform, dubbed, Windows Runtime or WindowsRT for short, is object-oriented and just getting started. With enough knowledge of HTML and JavaScript, many people out there with limited knowledge of C++ could create some pretty snazzy object-oriented apps that make use of jQuery and YUI hosted over the web. With the launch of the Windows App Store, don’t be surprised to see some amazing third party apps put long-time industry staples to shame. Once you start looking into the development platform for Metro, then you start to realize that it isn’t just a gimmick for touch screen users. Ostensibly, a great deal of time developing the .NET Framework is about to pay off, in bundles, for everyone who starts using Metro.

Gamers Not Doomed; HID Development Pushed Forward by Windows 8 OS
Gamers likely won’t be left out of the picture. Metro apps are designed to run in full screen, and as all hardcore gamers know, most high intensity games actually throw you into full-screen mode any way. The difference is likely to be negligible, but who wouldn’t like a concise way to manage all entertainment software and keep it running in the background every once in a while? Single player games that enter the market as instant classics like TES: Skyrim could suddenly appear more interactive in the future. Don’t be surprised to see some form of Windows 8 incorporated into the next version of Xbox (Xbox 720?) with DirectX 11 support. It would be nice to see cross-compatibility with the Xbox and Windows PC. Imagine if you could run any console game on a PC and vice versa: Now that kind of unification would prevent a lot of people from buying all those Media Center extenders and going wild on home entertainment systems. Only time will tell how far Microsoft will take us down the rabbit hole. For gamers, that is a great thing.

Multi-monitor and multi-touch support will bring Windows 8 to tablets and phones like never before with certified Metro applications that are programmed for Windows Runtime (WindowsRT). Expect a lot to happen in how we use our desktop and laptop systems. While major advancements in human interface devices are years away, it appears to be one of the major cornerstones of IBM Research and Microsoft Research. Unification across platforms is a recipe for redundancy, but in the case of sensitive data, redundancy is a very good thing. We want to be able to access our office files from home and our home files from the office, without necessarily having to do cartwheels with third party software. The integration of SkyDrive, and ultimately, shell extensions for third-party apps like Dropbox, is a given. Microsoft is never going to take over the cloud-hosted backup market, but they could pull off a pretty neat way of sharing, updating, and collaborating on projects between tablets, phones, desktops, laptops, game consoles, and more. Kinect for Windows is going to be scoffed at in the beginning, but once everyone has such a device linked up to their monitor, moving your hand around to change the active Window on your computer isn’t going to be that bad of a trade-off. In 2009, I gave a speech to a number of people in the public sector about what I saw as the cornerstone for future technology. That presentation included the fact that a device like the SmartBoard would be obsolete within five years’ time, due to the decreasing price of touch screen computers, and the ability for computing devices to detect human movement. While it didn’t go over well with the locals, it is happening, right now. That is something to be excited about. Whatever touch screen advancements Microsoft introduces with Windows 8 will once again push the hardware market to accommodate the software. This means all sorts of new human interface devices are already in development, even from third parties (see: Google Goggles/Google Glasses as one superlative example).

A New World for Software and Hardware Development

It’s not just a Microsoft world: Software companies, game studios, and all sorts of IT companies depend on the reliability and performance of Microsoft products and services, even when their customers aren’t in Microsoft Windows. This happens whenever an e-mail passes through an Exchange server, or a large database is designed for interoperability between a metadata retrieval system and Microsoft Access. Companies that specialize in document management, database administration, and even brand marketing will reap massive benefit from an interface that contains a display mechanism that has the potential to plot and chart raw data into something visually understandable. For example, if I tell you we ordered a hundred pizzas, each consisting of eight slices, and we only have 10 minutes to finish 25 slices, you’re going to wonder how many pizzas we have left. Once data entry software, even stuff that was initially designed with a Mac in mind, is designed for Metro, we’re not just going to be able to see how many pizza slices we have left – we may have the option to order some extras, or watch other people eat the ones left in 10 minutes. It’s that kind of world we’re delving into. We don’t see how great Metro can be: Only because software companies known for their great innovative capabilities like Google and Apple are just getting started on WindowsRT and Metro. This stuff is not going away, and when all the great innovator’s in the world get involved, we’re going to see sparks fly off the third rail.

Negativity Bias
Many people who try the Windows Consumer Preview may be inexperienced with running beta software. And when your whole operating system is a big chunk of bugs, in many cases unbranded, and in some cases feature incomplete, there is going to be a heck of a lot to complain about. I admit that I’m one of them. Take a look at my post about Windows 8 being a platform to sell Windows Live connected services. Well, of course that is what Windows 8 is, but it has the potential to be much more. Studies show us that, on average, people tend to remember a negative outcome 2.5x more than they do a good one. That means you’re 2.5 times more likely to remember when you got a bad haircut then when you got a good one. You’re 2.5 times more likely to dwell on the day you lost your job, than you are to remember the years you spent at the very same job when you contributed an enormous amount of productivity to the company’s bottom line. You’re 2.5 times more likely to remember that turbulence on the airplane. It was unbearable for ten minutes, and now you’re 2.5 times less likely to remember the time you struck up a great conversation with someone on that long flight. You’re 2.5x more likely to remember that woman or man who rejected you on that first date then you are to remember the laughs you shared going into the restaurant. This negativity bias is something we usually learn about in the first or second year of undergraduate psychology, but very few of us even remember or know what it is. In general, your body is trained to remember when bad things happened more than good things, and actually dwell on it. It is truly a response from the Stone Age, and is a very healthy response. It keeps you in balance. But in today’s high tech and demanding world, it can be taken too far.
So yes, we can look at Windows 8 and positively say, “Maybe this thing won’t be so bad. Maybe I can learn it, and enjoy it.”

The True Test: Greater Than The Sum of Its Parts?

Don’t forget that Windows 8 will include a Start on Demand model for all system-related services. For years, I found myself sending Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 customers to a web page called Black Viper ( This site contained detailed guides on how to configure your Windows operating system to use as few services as absolutely necessary. That site became especially popular during the Windows Vista release. Essentially, the site goes through every single service running on your system and will tell you, not only what the default start setting is for it, but how best to optimize it to suit your needs. If you were trying to squeeze every last drop of performance out of the operating system, without much care for its ability to perform certain operations, you could always use BlackViper’s “Service Configurations” lists to decide whether or not it was safe to make sure that something like the Distributed Link Tracking Client service or the World Wide Web Publishing Service could be completely disabled or not. If I haven’t lost you on this one, Microsoft has come up with a novel solution that is sure to improve your experience with Windows 8, and that is by using “Start on Demand”. Under Start on Demand, when Windows 8 needs a service, it launches it – only when. So that, in and of itself, will save resources. And when we look at what is coming up with memory deduplication, we are looking at true advancement in operating system performance at its most basic level.

Yes, the Consumer Preview is flawed, but for all its flaws, let us all think about these things and realize that the best is yet to come for an operating system ahead of its time.


I'm still trying to get the firewall service to start.

I did all of the things listed below, including the automatic, and manual fix.....


This firewall issue is commonly found on vista and windows 7 (64 BIT OS)
It is recommended to contact malware removal forums to remove it first and try the fix
Run the services repair tool by ESET
Restart the PC.Firewall and critical missing services should work.

Manual Fix
Download both the registry files
Windows firewall - *Firewall
Base filtering engine - *BFE
Launch them,You should get a UAC prompt now
Click YES *& Restart your PC

Now,Press Windows+ R key and type

regedit and click ok

go to


Right click on it-permissions

Click on ADD and type

Everyone and click ok

Now Click on Everyone

Below you have permission for users

Select full control and click ok

Now,open RUN and type

services.msc and click ok

start base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service

If you still have this error
Windows could not start Windows Firewall on local Computer. See event log, if non-windows services contact vendor. Error code 5.

Download and launch this key,click YES
Shared access
give full control permission to this key similar to previous one

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservic esSharedAccess

Right click on it -permissions

Click on Add and type

Everyone and select Full control
You should able to start firewall now
You may also be missing security center windows defender ,BITS and windows update


Security center *-wscsvc
Windows defender - windefend
Windows update *- *wuauserv
Launch them and click YES when you get a UAC prompt


Ok I did all this I confirmed that the BFE is running.
But I still get these same error messages when I try and start the service.

Does anyone have any idea what it's asking for, I don't have any idea what user it's looking for.

If someone needs to see something else let me know and I'll post it.

I'd ignore this but Windows 8 won't let you download anything from the store unless the firewall is running. I've seen info that states that Windows 8.1 will be available through the app store, If that's the only way, I'll have to resolve this before then.

I've found many posts from people having similar problems, the post above was supposed to be a fix, but it didn't work for me.

I went back and confirmed that all of the changes were made to the registry.


I'm so frustrated... I've been scouring the Net for a solution to my problem, and couldn't find anything that applied to my problem, so I decided to beg for help here

Anyway, the problem is that every time that I boot Vista (Build 5600 RC1 x64), I get a low-res screen that plainly says, "xmnt2002 program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK." This had been happening before, but after the error appeared a line appeared below it that consisted of dots being drawn across the screen and everything loaded perfectly. It was only today after I tried to rearrange the partitions on my HD using an Ubuntu Live CD (as it's the only thing that works... most of the time though the power was cut off during a partitioning process just before all of my woes occured, and everything else I use just asks for a reboot and does SQUAT) that those dots aren't appearing and Vista just hangs there. I tried booting into safe mode, but after the drivers are done loading it just hangs (I know it says, "Please wait", but I waited there for hours with no effect.) I tried repairing... but the Vista install DVD (that worked flawlessly before) just says, "Loading files", then has a little loading animation and then goes to a blank screen instead of the expected GUI. I tried using my XP disc to check for errors in the recovery cosole, but I can't log in as admin because I don't know the password I then tried to boot into my XP install (Vista seems to completely ignore it, though, as it boots before the Acronis OS Selector launches), but the Acronis rescue disk won't launch any of the programs, including the OS Selector... they all just launch to blank screens.

So... I'd say that I've exhausted pretty much all of my options for getting my PC to work at all (that I know of, anyway... but that's why I'm here ) Alas, may I grovel at your expert feet as I wait patiently for the response that will save me. It is urgent, though. That PC cost me $1500 and I'll be damned if it doesn't work.

I'm at the verge of tears... please HELP ME!!!

Hi all,

I just thought i might put up a post with some performance tweaks to get some more grunt from your vista RC1 OS. Overall I was able to get my a considerable perfomance increase and now vista runs as quick or quicker than XP and is just as stable (or as stable as one could expect from any windows OS, lol)

1. Disble Indexing

My god, the amount of CPU hogged by this feature in the first couple of days of having it installed. Turn it OFF. the end result is slower search speeds, but that is offset by a huge performance boost. To disable indexing go to computer, select your drive properties and uncheck "index ths drive for faster searching".

From what i hear, the indexing service will quiet down after a couple of days of use, but that can only be said for people wh don't move, install or delete alot of files on a daily basis. Unfortunalely i do, so i would rather be able to do that quickly than look for my files a bit quicker

2. Optimizing your appearance for speed.

Some people like eye candy. i choose to not bother with it until a final release when it is properly implemented. to give you the basic vista visual style without all the eye candy go to control panel->system->advanced system settings.

then go to the advanced tab then performance->settings. select custom and uncheck everything except for "use visual styles on windows and buttons" this will maintain the basic vista theme, but get rid of menu and mouse shadows, windows animations and all of that.

3. Startup and recovery options

While still in the advanced tab of the system properties, go to startup and recovery->settings.

If you only have vista as an OS uncheck everyhting except for "time to display recovery options when needed". If you have a dual boot system leave "time to display list of operating systems" checked otherwise you will only be able to boot into vista.

under system failure, uncheck everything and set "write debugging information" to 'none'.

4. Increasing performance on Nvidia cards

Vista installs a generic WDDM driver for your nvidia card on installation. These drivers are surprisingly better than the Nvidia 96.33 drivers. So here is the story on that. The Nvidia 96.33 drivers support both DirectX and OpenGL. As a result of the OpenGL support, the drivers aren't fully optimized for either. The windows drivers on the other hand do not support OpenGL, but provide better performance on DirectX games. I have heard of cases of 30fps increases on Half-Life 2 by uninstalling the Nvidia drivers.

So the bottom line is, if you want openGL and don't mind the performance hit, go with the Nvidia drivers, if you are willing to sacrifice your OpenGL games, keep the windows drivers and get performance close to XP on your DirectX games.

If you want to uninstall your Nvidia graphics card driver just go to control panel->device manager. look for your display adapter, go to properties and under the 'driver' tab click on 'roll back driver'.

5. Disbling services

This is guaranteed to cause a flame war. People don't think it improves performance and many have killed their system by doing such things. I have had to reinstall XP a few times doing this until i figured it out of course. Your system might be different, so disabling all of these might kill your internet connection or something, but not your system.

Just to give you an idea of what I am running here are my specs

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ overclocked from 1.8Ghz to 2.25Ghz
RAM: I gig generic DDR 400 overclocked to DDR 500
MOBO: Gigabyte K8 NSC-939 nforce3 250Gb chipset
GPU: Nvidia Geforce FX 5900 Ultra softmodded to 5950 Ultra overclocked from 450/850 to 490/980 running dual display configuration
2x Sony DRU-810A Dual Layer DVD-RW
Western Digital 160 GB IDE HDD
Western Digital 80 GB IDE HDD
Internet: Integrated Marvell Yukon Gigabit ethernet controller and D-Link DSL 502-T router
Audio: Integrated AC 97 7.1 surround

Pretty average overall, but if your system has a similar internet connection then you should be able to disable all of these services without problem.

If you are connected to a LAN, use dial-up, need a remote connection and/or use media center for TV or radio I don't recommend doing anything I have suggested, or if you are brave, read the service descriptions first and make up your own mind. I have disabled all of these services on my PC and the only effect for me is less windows notifications bothering me.


I won't be held responsible if you kill your computer or yourself in the process. But if it works, I will gladly take the credit

Open your services window by typing "services.msc" without quotes into a run box (windows key + R). disable the following services by double cliking on the service and selecting 'disable' as the startup type:

Computer Browser
Diagnostic Policy Service
Distributed Link Tracking Client
DNS Client
Function Discovery Provider Host
Function Discovery Resource Publication
IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules
IP Helper
Ipsec Policy Agent
Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v2.0.50727_X86
Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
Offline Files (can impact offline file viewing performance)
Peer Name Resolution (can impact some of the new windows live apps)
Peer Networking Identity Manager
Portable Device Enumerator Service (will impact connected devices, e.g mp3 players etc)
Protected Storage
ReadyBoost (ReadyBoost is meant to use removable flash drives as virtual memory to improve performance, but I can't get the option with mine so off it goes)
Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
Remote Access Connection Manager
Routing and Remote Access
Secondary Logon
System Event Notification Service
Tablet PC Input Service (unless you have a tablet PC)
Task Scheduler
Terminal Services
Windows Error Reporting Service
Windows Event Log
Windows Media Center Extender Service
Windows Media Center Receiver Service
Windows Media Center Scheduler Service
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service
Windows Search
Windows Time

Overall this will reduce the amount of running processes and free up that all important memeory.

6. Disable UAC

This won't improve performance, but i get the shits with having to confirm nearly every action i do under vista. It gets annoying when your configuring your system and it is constanly going black and asking me if i really want to open the control panel. Of course i do, I just clicked on it!! Anyway enough of my rant, here's how to get rid of it

Open a run box (windows key + R) type "msconfig" without quotes. Go to the tools tab. scroll down to the "disable UAC" and click launch a console will open telling you it went well if indeed it went well. If you feel the need to turn it back on just scroll down to "enable UAC" in the same dialog and click launch again.

Anyway that's all for the moment. Restart your PC and you should see the difference. what you should expect is a faster, smoother running OS with less eye candy and intrusive windows notifications

Also if the mods think a thread like this is a good idea, could you please sticky it.


I recently just formatted my harddrive. It went from Windows Vista to Windows 7. When I first installed windows 7, I selected the clean install, but it saved the old files in I decided to format the drive and start fresh. Through ALL of these installs, I've had blue screens.

I just install again a few days ago and I've had 4 or 5 BSOD since then.

Attached are the dumb files/SF Diagnostic Tools and CPUID screenshots.

Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Your latest dump file lists dxgmms1.sys as the probable cause. This is a Windows System file and for it to be the cause of your crash is highly unlikely.
Old and incompatible drivers can and do cause issues with Windows 7, often giving false error codes. Random stop codes can often indicate hardware issues.

As a Priority:

Norton is known to be a cause of BSOD's on many Windows 7 systems. I suggest that you uninstall Norton using the Norton Removal Tool in Safe Mode. Download Blue Screen friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement. Make sure Windows firewall is enabled!

Hi Everyone,

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. I'm trying to use the Sysinternals program Rammap to try to debug possible problems with the RAM on one of my PCs. However when I try to run Rammap version 1.0, I get the message

"This program requires Windows Vista or higher"

I tried using the Properties | Compatibility options to run Rammap in Windows Vista, Vista plus SP1, and Vista plus SP2. For all 3 of those Vista versions, the program launches but then returns this message:

"Error refreshing database".

After that the program doesn't do anything. I've gotten the same results on two different PCs:

Dell Dimension 8300 3.2 MHz 4GB RAM
Dell Dimension 8400 3.2 MHz 4GB RAM (the one with the possible RAM problem)

Since Rammap doesn't think I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, I'm guessing that this problem is unrelated to the possible RAM problems I'm having. Also, the PC that's not having problems can't run Rammap for the same reasons.

Does anyone have any ideas why Rammap is behaving this way? Has anyone else running Rammap with Windows 7 seen this behavior?

Thanks for your time,

Using an older Dell Latitude D600. 1.6ghz / 1.25 gb ram / Radeon Mobilty 9000

- Installation was a breeze (including the formating of the HD to install over XP)
- Driver support SEEMED spot on (more on that in a bit)
- It is at least as responsive & robust as XP (takes some getting used to tho)
- Not a huge fan of the Task Bar. Not as user friendly or informative as previous versions (IMO. Can't move the quick launch, not as much at a glance info)

The issue I am having is apparently with my video driver. The driver is installed (no errors in device manager). The text looks good, the resolution is great. The issues start when:

a) I run the Windows 7 "Test" System locks. No keyboard. No mouse. Need to do a hard reboot.
b) Try to watch a dvd. Windows Media Player launches, system locks as described above.
c) Install Windows Live Experience. System locks.

I cannot find an official Vista driver for the Radeon Mobility 9000. I sadly may have to go back to XP simply because I use this laptop to play movies.

Any input / advice regarding the driver would be hugely appreciate...

Recently, I installed Windows 7 (64bit) and decided to give it a run. Installed quick, set itself up (I LOVE the no-driver hassles), and everything about it is just great. However, gaming with it is another story.

I installed the following games:
-Battlefield 2142 (punkbuster)
-Call of Duty 4 (punkbuster)
-Fallout 3 (Games for windows live)
-Team Fortress 2 (steam)

Battlefield 2142: Didn't run. Double click to launch, screen goes black. I press Ctrl+Alt+Del to find the program isn't working. One of my favorites not running

Call of Duty 4: Kinda disheartened by BF2142 not working. Launch this, lo and behold, not working either! same deal too; launchs into black screen, but does nothing. Meanwhile, windows is prompting me saying it isn't working, in the background.

Fallout 3: This game didn't work on my previous XP install, so I was really hoping this would install. However, Games for Windows will NOT install. During the initial installation, it fails and windows prompts 'trying to find solution'. Rest installs fine. When I try to run it, error comes up; 'The program can't start because xlive.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.' I downloaded Games for Windows installer off of Microsoft's website, and try to install it like that. However, during the installation the 'trying to resolve' pops up, if I click cancel it just skips the entire installation! The install finishes, and it prompts it as succesful, although it installed nothing.

Team Fortress 2: This was a favorite, and so help me god if it didn't work. Luckily, Steam downloaded it without a hitch, and I was able to play it with same framerate as XP and all. Seems that Steam is the platform with least BS tied with it.

Please, if you see ANY way to fix the 3 game's errors, reply on this thread and let me (and others) know! I really do like what Microsoft has done with Windows 7; Floats like Windows Vista, yet stings like Windows XP.

Windows 7, 64bit
Nvidia GeForce 8500GT
1gb of ram
Dual core Intel E4600 2.4GHZ

Cheers, and thanks to all who reply!

Hello, everyone.

I've been having an issue with the Vista partition of my HDD. I'm not exactly sure if this is a Vista issue, HDD issue, or both. Anyway, Vista will occasionally fail to launch past the initial boot screen (the loading bar). However, after waiting some time, my computer (a Sony VAIO vgn-nr260e/w) will cycle back to the boot menu (Windows bootloader) and upon booting into Vista a second time, it will succeed (as long as the power was not turned off after the initial failed boot). This error usually occurs when installing a new application (an error message is given during the process, but the install succeeds), or for an unknown reason when using my other OS, Linux Kubuntu 8.04.1 (although the only occurance of this so far was easily fixed). Now, Linux has access to my Windows partition (Many of my files are on Windows, so I need access), and if Vista fails to load and Linux is booted instead of Vista following, I have to force the Windows partition to mount (Linux will send a message saying that the partition is in use).

As of now, I can only think of two possibilities: Part of the Windows partition has gone bad, or Vista may be missing some files. I have also noticed that sometimes Vista will save a file, and that same file will be missing on the next boot.

I'm sorry; this is alot of text, but any help would be appreciated. If you need any more information, let me know.

THIS IS AN EDIT: Vista is now failing to boot every other time. Also, a few files have gone corrupt. Even though Linux can still access them, Vista cannot. It's looking more like this is an HDD or an NTFS issue rather than a general Vista issue...if anyone knows anything, please let me know.

I am installing Vista Ultimate on to my Intel Desktop Motherboard DG965WH with the intel Core 2 Duo, and im trying to install the drivers from the DVD, everytime i try to launch the autorun it pops up with an error saying..."This Program cannot display the webpage"..... the autorun file is an express installer virtual CD. Please tell me how i can fix this....

Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 is quite possibly the best overall system maintenance tool of the year. Having received 5 stars from CNET, they also receive a 10/10 full endorsement from BoostSpeed isn't just about making your computer fast: It's about making preventative maintenance manageable through one application. While the market calls for a typical system scan to attract buyers, that scan is entirely legitimate, and does correct serious registry problems in a way that far exceeds industry expectations. CCleaner, for example, can hardly hold a candle to this utility.

Looking closer at the System Advisor, we can determine whether or not the Internet connection can be automatically optimized. This is done with BoostSpeed through a manual or automatic setting in the Auslogics Internet Optimizer. Auslogics Registry Defrag will let you know that you can reduce registry access time and increase overall system performance by running this tool. This is a very delicate task that most freeware applications will not take on. Defragmenting the registry involves significant risk if there is a failure and that is why Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with a Rescue Center, which can literally allow you to backup the changes that have been made within the program. The program will even automatically create these restore points before adjusting your system for perfect fine tuning.

If the Disk and Registry Maintenance options weren't enough, Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with in-depth ways to determine and modify your System Status and Privacy. If that weren't enough, the System Tweaks area allows you to optimize your Windows services around how you use your computer. This can be so useful in a work environment, as most system services continue running unabated, even when they will never be used!

Control over startup items and installed software has never been easier. Needless duplicate files found on a system can be deleted and disks can be explored to discover what is eating up all of that storage space. The System tweaks area is where Auslogics BoostSpeed really shines. It contains management options for the User Interface, Start Menu, Taskbar, Windows Explorer, System Security, Startup and Shutdown, System, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and numerous additional Software Tweaks.

"Hi, I’m Jessica Dolcourt from CNET Download and this is a first look at Auslogics BoostSpeed. This is a top rated program that attempts to defrag, tweak, and otherwise optimize the computer where its most likely to get bogged down. Looking at the clean launch interface, you might never guess that there are 18 tools bundled into one app. The main pane is dominated by shortcuts for testing the health of the system. One Button Checkup will scan for issues and attempt to fix them. For instance, Disk Cleaner’s job is to find and remove junk files. With most scans you run, you’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the files, and to back them up before you change anything. Since the goal of the program is to optimize performance, BoostSpeed often frames problems in terms of how much space you would free if you deleted the loose files. On the left, the system tools are organized by activity: Computer, Cleanup, Optimization, Privacy, Settings, and so on. When you click the task category, you’ll see the available tools and a brief description of what they do. Clicking the tools launches it in a separate window, so that you can return to this main interface at any time. Most tools are easy to work their way around, and most changes can be undone in Auslogics Rescue Center, which you can get to from individual tool interfaces or from the settings on the BoostSpeed panel interface. In the Rescue Center, you’ll see a list of the changes you’ve made. You’ll be able to see full details for each entry and view archive backups as well. Which system files BoostSpeed will back up, and which it will leave alone, are things you can specify in the program settings, under the tab that says Rescue Center. We’re fans of Auslogics BoostSpeed for its comprehensive system maintenance and nicely packaged interface. Some of the app’s component parts are offered as stand-alone freeware products, such as the Disk Defrag…" - Courtesy CNET Review of Auslogics BoostSpeed

It is quite probable that Auslogics BoostSpeed is the best program on the market for system repair and optimization EVER. Even if you don't know how to use the options listed above, that is why this program is great. It really DOES it for you. It really does repair your registry, with money behind it that went into big time research and development.

Their previous freeware products have been used regularly by IT professionals, but this product includes absolutely everything. There is nothing missing in this program, and updates are absolutely frequent. It is the one application I would recommend to every member of without hesitation. Even if you do not know what these settings mean, this program will optimize and repair your system without any doubt. Today, there are so many programs that "claim" to do this and do that. When we saw Auslogics offering a commercial solution I had to start offering it on my website after I saw what it could do. I had to make a video about it. I had to find a way to provide a discount to members.

I have recommended it to my mother, my grandparents, and I will bring it up to a client I am currently working with tomorrow who is asking for Windows XP. This is the program that you need to automatically manage your system and keep it up-to-date, speedy, and performing in top condition.

Windows 7 Forums Rating: 10/10 Stars

Don't take my word for it. CNET gave them 5/5 stars too!
