  1. It's also over for Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. But this is not that big of deal. It's not like my Nvidia driver will stop working on October 2021. I'm not a gamer; I selected a GeForce GT 1030 for its low power consumption.
  2. I went to Waterfox Classic when I moved from Windows XP x64 to Windows 7 x64. It has a number of advantages for my purposes, such as being able to set my location exactly (With CenturyLink DSL, it otherwise gets reported as somewhere in northwestern Ohio, which prevents me from using Locast Cleveland).
  3. I had to install both kb4474419 and kb4490628 before I could install the Nvidia video driver. As far as issues, I have not experienced the OP's issues, nor any other issues.
  4. I installed both kb4474419 and kb4490628 for the SHA-2 update.
  5. For Windows 7, you should use Microsoft Security Essentials, not Windows Defender. Microsoft is still providing definition updates for MSE on Windows 7. I just had MSE install today's update as I was typing this response.
  6. I have not noticed this. Windows 7 x64 is slower to start up and respond than Windows XP x64 was. Also, Office 2003 seems to be slower to respond than Office XP was when I used Windows XP x64. Windows XP x64 was considerably faster to respond than Windows XP, and much more stable.
  7. Microsoft Security Essentials will be supported on Windows 7 until 2023: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-is-microsoft-security-essentials-c25ad47a-7d15-8072-1438-b07dffcbbb20 Windows Update still provides the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool once a month. My Windows 7 x64 system receives both updates without problem.
  8. Black Viper has a guide to services configuration: http://www.blackviper.com/ But increasing your ram to 4 GB would help a lot.
  9. In order to use this version, you need a copy of Windows 7 POS with a valid product key. A quick check of eBay did not turn up any Windows 7 POS copies for sale. It looks like a dead end.
  10. I used to have a triple boot system with Windows XP, XP x64, and Windows 7 x64. Windows XP x64 was my main operating system, but when I could no longer use it to buy stuff off eBay, it was time to move on. I use VueScan for my scanner, since HP did not provide x64 software other than a driver. My LightScribe software works under Windows 7 x64, which is great. In the past, each operating system had its own drive. Now I have Windows 7 x64 on one drive, and the data on another. I have an Asus Prime Q270M-C motherboard that I have yet to get working under Windows 7 x64. I need to give that another try. It goes on its own hard drive, too.
  11. I had not heard of Explorer ++. If I do decide to try it, I will wait until version 1.4 is RTM.
  12. I don't own a laptop. I bought my computer in 1993, a FastData from FastMicro computers, and have upgraded parts incrementally, but never bought a new computer. Although every part has been replaced at least once, I still call it FastData. Like George Washington's axe, even though the handle has been replaced 3 times, and the head replaced twice, it's still George Washington's axe.
  13. When I moved from Windows XP x64 to Windows 7 x64, I also moved to Waterfox Classic. It has been working well for me.
  14. Another minor problem with Windows 7 is that it cheats at Spider Solitaire by not properly shuffling the deck. My success rate with 2 suits went from about 50% to 7% when I changed from Window XP x64 to Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
