    SOLVED Problem with search and indexing

    Thanks TrainableMan. After removing everything from the indexing options, applying, and then adding some folders back to indexing, things seem to work. (rebuilding the index did not work for me). Weird behavior by windows... although my history was that I upgraded from 7 to 8, and then back down...

    SOLVED Problem with search and indexing

    Hi all, I've recently run into problems when using the win 7 (8 as well) search. I have a folder of documents in which the search function just won't work! It would return no results for certain files that were clearly there, in the top directory. I've read about indexing, how to turn it on...

    Blurry fonts issue

    Lately, I've been getting blurry font issues on WIn7. It seems that it can only be solved by logging out and back in. I THINK (but not sure) that this started with an update to my amd/ati drivers, so I might just reinstall that if the problem persists, but I thought I'd try to post this here...

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    Oh no, don't worry, I did manage to get it activated. It's just that I had to do a full install of Vista before hand, which is kinda silly of MS.

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    Yes it does install in that case, but I can't activate it with my Win7 upgrade key.

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    Hmm... when I reinstalled, it specifically gave me an activation error referring to the fact that my key was valid for upgrades only. Maybe Microsoft activation has gotten smarter?

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    Interesting! How would this work? Would I enter my Vista key during the win7 install and then my win7 key after? That would have saved me a lot of time...

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    It worked! Thanks! I forgot that I had purchased an upgrade version, so I had to reinstall Vista first and then Upgrade to win7 (64-bit). That was a pain, but it worked in the end! :)

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    Thanks. I did purchase my win 7 home premium 32bit legally, I just wanted to make sure this was allowed by Microsoft. I don't want to go through the pain of reinstalling only to find out I need to buy a new key. Sorry for being skeptical but... I'll come back and mark it as solved when it...

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    So I can just enter the same key that I used for my windows 32-bit with no problems (same edition, of course)? Nice. :) I'll give it a try.

    SOLVED Upgrade to 64bit

    I currently have Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit. Is there a way to upgrade to the same version in 64bit with the license I have or must I buy a new license? I do have a 64bit win7 DVD available. Thanks
