Eraser works in XP, Vista and Windows 7 apart from browsers this is my most used application and can be set to use the same overwriting as DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke). Eraser sits in your right click menu and is a very efficient tool.

Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns.

If you're struggling to run something, try right clicking and go "Troubleshoot compatibility" and chose what compatibility mode you want to run it in (if you haven't already done so).

Alternativley, run it with admin rights. One of my games won't run at all apart from with admin rights.

The official list from Microsoft is improving all the time. To continue publishing apps which work, might get too ponderous to have real meaning. I would suggest (another thread) that members post in problem apps and perhaps the site will get some good feedback on how to deal with those problems.

Windows 7 has a Disk Burner just pop a CD / DVD in your DVD Burner and click twice on a ISO file and Windows 7 will Burn to Disk ... but sometimes you need more control, I have been using IMGBurn for years is a multi platform lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application and supports a wide range of image file formats - including BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI and more. IMGBurn has no whistles and bells it just does exactly what its made to do and does it very well, whats more its Free, works with Windows 95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 and 7 (including all the 64-bit versions). If you use Wine, it should also run on Linux and other x86-based Unixes.

ImgBurn is brilliant, it's what I used to burn 7 to a disk. Unfortunatley Nero 7 doesn't support ISO burning, so ImgBurn filled the gap perfectly.

Thing I have tried and work:
Spotify
Parabellum
War Rock
Dawn of War II (yet to try other DOWs)
Mozilla Thunderbird
Skype
Open Office
And plenty of others.

One thing that does NOT work after upgrading is Hotspot Shield, an IP shield I use because I live in Canada and need it to access things like Hulu. Does anyone know of a IP shield that does work with Windows 7?

Haven't tested it extensively but Microsoft Office 2010 (BETA) seems to be working fine.
uTorrent 2.0 (RC) is working too.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but Peerblock works in 32 and 64 bit Windows 7

Other things that work:
Nexxtech USB Webcam [2516523A] - just bought it today, on the box it shows "Certified for Vista", Just plug in and windows finds all the needed drivers

ArcSoft Videoimpression 2.0 (this came with the camera, installed and working perfectly)

ManyCam 2.4 - works perfectly with the aforementioned USB camera and Windows 7
