  1. Hello all , first off , I'm a vivid Vista user . But sometimes I use Windows 7 for trying out some programmes . Right now I have a fresh install of Win 7 SP1 on my spare machine with Core Quad , it is not activated and absolutely clean from everything , except Audio/Video drivers . Something weird's going on , I can't delete executables . Process explorer says that they are locked by the system itself . The only way to delete an executable - close it's folder , wait for some time and delete this closed folder , without opening it again , otherwise it locks again. Tried switching Off defend

  3. (Thread inspired by Dr. Flay's thread: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/38561/windows-7-old-games-failing-to-run) Ever since Games Explorer was introduced in Windows Vista, it has caused problems for users with limited access to the internet. Most affected users would have already disabled it by editing GameUX's registry settings or by unregistering the dll (GameUX.dll), but last month Microsoft has taken the domain the Games Explorer system used to phone for game-related metadata and updates out of commission (specifically: "https://games.metaservices.microsoft.com/games/SGamesWebSe
  4. MAKE SURE SECURE BOOT IS OFF WHICH IT PROBABLY IS IF YOU ARE READING THIS, ALSO MOST VISTA COMPATIBLE MACHINES LIKELY DONT SUPPORT UEFI This took a while to do here properly but I figured it out in the end. This works on an OptiPlex 390 using Vista SP2 x64 and a HDD in UEFI mode, booted from a UEFI+GPT USB (made from the original MSDN SP2 ISO and Rufus 3.5). For some reason it seems to bug out when trying to install even to a clean HDD. It’ll complain about being unable to boot from the device on your machine and then fail to create the partitions correctly with an error. Ther
  5. Microsoft relesed preview builds from the Microsoft Edge Canary channel available on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. This rounds out the initial set of platforms that Microsoft began to roll out back in April, so developers and users alike can try out the next version of Microsoft Edge on every major desktop platform. Microsoft Edge preview builds for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1
  6. Hi, I want to make an Windows 7 Multi language ISO file but I don't know how to do it. Can you tell me tutorial ?
  7. Why Windows Vista isn't bad Windows Vista: it's the OS everyone loves to hate. Still today, several years later, I see it being criticized for having high system requirements and being a memory hog. But is it really that bad? I think not. In this article I am going to explain why I believe Windows Vista deserves more respect and really isn't bad, and hopefully convince some of you XP and Windows 7 fans that Vista is a very viable OS, especially by today's standards. So let's begin. Windows Vista, when released, introduced a completely different and totally new kernel and driver model than
  8. I have several computers with W7 in which I finish receiving updates on January 14, 2020. They can not update to W8 or W10 since they are Pentium 4 and the processor does not have the NX bit. Although there are still 2 years left, I am thinking if it is possible to install one of the following to extend the period of updates: Windows 7 Embedded Standard SP1 = October 13, 2020 Windows Embedded POSReady 7 = October 12, 2021 Would it be possible to install it on top or should a clean installation be done?
  9. Does anyone know you can, or know where i can find the relevant i for customizing the partitioning part of the Windows 7 installer I cant find any info on this part of the setup process, does it use a diskpart script in the background or is it a custom partitioning built i to the setup and such? The main reasons i want to play around with it: i want to be able to customise it so i can potentially optimise it better (if it is doable i imagine it would be the same process in the win 10 installer, since it’s seems to be based on the same code and the default win10 boot partitions a
  10. Did anyone succeed to install Windows 7 from USB 3.0? Because I have integrated the drivers in boot.wim and install.wim, but I always get the same error (missing driver). I also tried to load them from a folder or to install in UEFI mode ... no way! It's quite frustrating...
  11. I will make custom Windows 7 installation in order to reduce time to install driver Anyone knows drivers pack for Windows 7 which include chipset or whatelse for earlier generation hardware (such Core) to later hardware (such Skylake) drivers? I don't care about the size because it will using USB drive as media instead DVD
  12. Hi, i'm stuck at something that's been working fine before... Is there any changes to the latest win 7 version regarding userprofile relocation? I'm following this guide to relocate programdata and userprofile https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/124198-user-profiles-create-move-during-windows-7-installation.html But after restarting nothing changes, here's my xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="oobeSystem"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchit
  13. Well, the issue reported on Graphics Bug in Windows 7 after installing August 2017 Security Updates, and also by Woody, rather unsurprisingly, also occurs on XP SP3... It only affects those using more than one monitor, and req monitors to be setup in such a way that certain parts of the screen have negative screen positions. For example a secondary monitor setup to the left of the main monitor, or with a higher top border than the main monitor, or both (which is the case of one of my machines). Then the secondary monitor starts acting up. Solution? None, yet, for XP. Workaround: uninstall K
  14. Hello! I've recently downgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 7 (Server 2008 R2) and one thing annoys me a little. Window animations are not super-smooth. Vista, 8, 8.1 and 10 have VERY smooth window-opening animation, but not 7 I've been looking through registry editor and didn't find anything related to it. Is it even possible to enable "super-smooth" animations in Windows 7? And I don't want to completely disable animations.
  15. I need some assistance and I hope somebody can assist me. I cloned two hard drives via clonezilla because one of those hard drives has bad sectors. I have Windows 7 64 bit. The original hard drives still work even though one of them has the bad sectors. The cloned hard drives will not boot. I get the message error File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occurred while trying to read the boot configuration data. I attempted some solutions that I saw on a few other threads; but, I have had no success. The system recovery options shows. Oper
  16. I need help here! I recently did a in-place upgrade from Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 x64 to Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 (I didn't realise that the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate had SP1 integrated to begin with). I had a lot of trouble getting some of the hardware such as network card and USB 3.0 ports working under Windows 7 and I managed to get things sorted out most of the way. However, when I attempt to activate Windows 7 over the internet, I received a error code 0xC004C003 meaning that one of the product keys that I used has been blocked by Microsoft. Microsoft Geniune
  17. Hi. I bought a Toshiba Satellite C655 6 years ago. Recently, I did a system recovery of the computer. It installed the windows 7 and many try out software. I did not like these 'extra' software. So I downloaded an windows 7 home premium from bit-torrent site, and installed on my computer. It did not require product key while in installing. But after the installation, a message came out "Window is not genuine", I tried to put my product key from my Toshiba sticker, but it did not work. Is there a way to 'activate' the 'clean' version of the windows 7? Or, I have to go back to the 'bloated'
  18. Hi, Today I have realized I cannot create zip folder from right-click context menu anymore. Don't know for how long it lasts, but my personal guess is yesterday (since I did update 7-zip and it might have broken something). Tried to fix it using autoruns (found nothing interesting) and Default Program Control Panel settings (where .zip ain't even listed). From what I got to know, it's connected to %windir%/system32/zipfldr.dll, which itself is functional, since I can operate .zip with drag and drop or Send to menu. I guess it is a case of a single registry key, but I cant localize it
  19. Well for some reason Windows 7 would hang when scanning for new updates. I restarted and when the new updates showed up I tried to install them but was unable due to the updates hanging on downloading. After that I tried to do a system restore, didn't work, had to restore back. After that I stopped wuauserv and bits, deleted the contents of the software distrubution folder, restarted the services and tried to update only for it to hang again. I use Eset smart security that is always updated. Any more info needed tell me. Long and short is that I am desperate and completely frustrated at thi

  21. I have purchased a pair of Bluedio bluetooth headphones and even got them to work and got Windows to provide a control panel but then I had to to a system restore so I have no idea how I got them to work. these headphones work perfectly with my Galaxy S7 Edge but not my PC. All other Bluetooth devices work perfectly. If anyone has any ideas please let me know... I am running Windows 7 SP1 on a Sony All In One desktop VPCL137FX
  22. Does anyone have a PCI Express M.2 SSD here and installed Windows 7 on it? Windows 7 when originally released only had support of the TRIM command on SATA SSDs. When NVM Express arrived, Windows 8.1 added support for it. But Microsoft released KB2990941 for Windows 7. This adds NVMe support to Windows 7. But I haven't got a PCIe SSD to test and verify if TRIM command is also enabled for NVMe storage devices on Windows 7. I only have an M.2 SATA SSD. If anyone has a PCIe SSD, can you please install Windows 7 with KB2990941 integrated and let me know if TRIM works? Updated edit: Just g
  23. Hello everyone. I noticed that some Vista users on here along with a friend of mine were experiencing a strange bug with Windows Vista's explorer view settings. Well after failing for months now to experience the issue for myself, it finally happened. However, I found a fix and want to share it in hopes that it will help someone else. Basically, the explorer view settings would be shared among different folders and view settings would be forgotten. If I chose to show the Music sort headers in the Music folder, my personal user folder would also change to the Music headers, and if I changed t
  24. Hi Everyone, I have created an unattended file which auto-joins to the domain, but it still prompts me to create a local user account. How can this part be skipped? I know you can use the firstlogon commands to delete the account, but I was wondering if there was a way to do it without even creating the account? Thanks Jonny
  25. Hi All, I have a problem in windows 7 pro 64 bit. The icon for safely removing hardware doesn't work anymore. When I click on it nothing happens. I tried the - RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll - workaround but all I get from that is a message that the usb device is not removable. Any ideas what could be the problem. Chris
