You might as well complain that your bicycle has two wheels and you
only want one. You're free to either take advantage of the design and
features of the bicycle, as billions do, or get yourself a unicycle.
If you're unwilling to learn and work with the design of Windows 7, as
millions of people happily do, you're free to use any one of many
alternatives.

Or, you could adjust your habits and attitude and continue to work
just as productively with the new operating system as you did before.
Look smart ass! I forced myself to use Windows 7 for a year for
eveything and it failed. I totally get that the inexperienced likes
Windows 7, I have no problems there.
I know what I'm doing. It doesn't get in my way.
Really? Either you don't know what you are doing or you are lying. As I
know for a fact that I know what I am doing and I get really tired of
Windows 7 always butting in and trying to hold my hand. And totally
stopping me from doing things that I used to do.

Pure BS! I used Windows 7 for over a year. How many years do you
have to use Windows 7 for an experienced user? What a million
fricken years?
Your frustration is self-inflicted. There are easy solutions to all of
your issues.

Been using computers for 35 years. How long have you been using them?
Can't the experience users have a say about anything anymore? Or is it
the clueless control everything nowadays?
I started using (and programming) computers in 1981 and have made a
good living from it. Computers and the Internet are also a hobby. For
what it's worth, I'm not having any of the problems with Win 7 that
you're having, so I have to seriously question your experience, at
least the part that applies to Win 7.

FYI, some of your posts in this thread are indistinguishable from
troll behavior. That's probably not your intent, so I wanted to let
you know.

No surprise there. As Windows 7 was designed just for her. Wasn't
designed for me though. I think of it as an insult for experienced
users.
I don't consider you an "experienced Windows 7 user". The things
you're stumbling over are very easily resolved.

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but it's clear you didn't use your
year of experience wisely. You let the smallest things completely
buffalo you. It's all in the attitude. If you want help, it's here for
the asking, but if you want to moan people will call you out on it.

That is totally odd to me. And you like Windows 7? Why? You don't get
insulted by Windows 7 treating you as a moron? I do!

Like I said before, how many years does an experience user has to use
Windows 7? I gave it one year and I feel that is enough. It doesn't
allow me to do many things that I used to do. Maybe you don't do any of
them which is okay, but I do.

Nope not true. Windows 7 won't let me record from the mixer. Nor allow
steam recording from a paid service. There are other things, but the
Windows 7 programmers thinks they know better and I think of them as
amateurs. I personally think they are smart asses and they have no
business telling anybody what to do.

I neither like nor dislike Windows 7, just like I didn't like or
dislike any other OS, (with the possible exception of AmigaDOS, but
that was ages ago.)

For me, Win 7 works fine. So far it has never gotten in my way or
otherwise cramped my style, and it has certainly never treated me like
a moron. As a computer professional, I generally understand why it
does what it does, and I'm easily able to adapt my own behavior or
change its behavior, as the situation dictates. In short, I'm not
having any real problems with it.

Bad habits can be hard to break, but you have at least two choices.
Break your bad habits or disable the security features that are
getting in your way. I recommend the first option.

No it isn't!


I used it on three computers for a year. I promised myself I would give
it that long to get used to it. And after the year I still wasn't
impressed. I personally found it insulting to have Windows 7 to hold my
hand all of the time. As all I wanted it to do is to butt out and to
shut up! But Windows 7 can't do that, now can it? Although I fully
understand why 80% of computer users like it and 20% doesn't. As I fall
into the 20% camp.
The Win 7 predecessor, Vista, had about a 60/40 response.
A lot of the visible changes from XP were windows dressing, and a half
way attempt to get the desktop appearance to be somewhat unique to
Microsoft, while imitating some of the Mac's nicety's.

Many of the things individual users dislike came from the wants of the
various corporate and government IT departments. The IT departments want
you to do things their way, even if it's a pain in the rear.

Then, there are hapless home users that don't know or remember how to do
things from one session to the next.

My chief complaint has to do with documentation (lack of),
Books (TFM to some) that are written below or above the needed levels,
and above all, inaccurate and obsolete programmer's references and
"guides". I really hate to debug a program, and find out that the
problems are due to a system module that does not behave as the
available documentation says it does. Incomplete and obsolete
documentation is usually the culprit.

I had one case involving "machine control" software that was a real
problem. Seems that a momentary 24vdc pulse was getting sent out over
about one hundred interface pins. Since the devices attached to the pins
were expecting five to seven volts max. this played havoc.

Cutting to the chase, it turned out that the OEM had changed a default
in a reset function that controlled the initial voltage that would be
present under a very limited set of conditions. Since the change was not
documented, thousands of lines of code were written based on
documentation that was incorrect. The eventual cost to find and correct
the problems in code due to the reset software change, and replace
damaged hardware devices easily exceeded a hundred K.

LOL. Well put and you have something there. To me Vista and W7 is all eye candy and
nothing more. Myself I need computers that work for my work and I use only server OS
since my clients have the ability to get to their files which are parked on my
Storage and Windows Servers

Of course it doesn't but I don't expect a newbie like yourself to
understand that.

Just admit you're too inexperienced, to slow to learn, too set in your
ways or too stupid to learn to use a different OS, newbie. You'd think
you'd learn something in 35 years! I've been at it WAAAY longer than
you but Vista and later Win7 took me only an hour or two to make it
work the way I wanted it to work.

I'm putting you in my bozo bin, I have no time for those who can not or
will not learn.

So I bought a new car back in December and guess what? When ground speed
hits 10mph the doors lock!!! I'm REEEAAAALLLLLY tired of these doors
locking.

So I go and complain in a newsgroup for that car. All these people keep
pointing out... A) it's safety feature, B) I could just continue to drive my
old car, C) deal with it, that's the way things are these days or D) in the
owners manual there is a way to turn that feature off.

How insulting.

Why not a 5th answer... the car should know that even though I'm doing 10mph
(or more) I haven't left my property yet so don't lock the doors, no way I'm
getting car jacked while still in my driveway. I've told the integrated GPS
this is my home, so it should know. But I have to keep unlocking the doors
if I want them unlocked while still on my property.

I don't care that I can turn this feature off completely. I don't care how
safe it might make me. I've never been car-jacked before so obviously it
will never happen. I have lots of driving experience to back that up!

I don't think it's a bogus argument. Perfect scenario, no.
You run this program all the time, and it requires a UAC prompt,
so you click through.
Me, if I get a UAC prompt, I read it and make a determination before
clicking continue.

But the point of people clicking without reading is a valid one. It's those
same people that get web infections and a million IE toolbars from hitting
OK without thinking about what they are agreeing to.
You now get 'infected' with something...

You launch the 'infected' program, a UAC prompt shows, and you
click through and allow the 'infected' program to run.

So what's the difference ?

(Nothing, unlike several other security s/w packages that can
actually detect the file has changed for some reason since it
was last run, and it actually tells you this, so you can make an
informed decision about it.)
Well the majority of my software is either UAC compliant or installed in a
UAC compliant method. getting a UAC prompt is rare for me so when it does
popup it means something "funky" is going on and needs investigation.

So you're telling me that the UAC message about running a
program that isn't UAC compliant, is going to be different
after/if it becomes 'infected'?
