programs compatible with windows 7?

Q: programs compatible with windows 7?

Bought a new laptop and been having problems with bsod every day, which came up as Driver IRQL not less or equal and further down, tcpip.sys. I left it at the sellers for a check-up and they could find no problems but will be restoring it to default. My question is what programs are safe to install when I get it back? The only programs I had installed on it were PC Tools Spyware Doctor, Norton and Microsoft Office (also normal applications like lastfm and spotify.) Are any of these known to be incompatible with Windows 7? Some forums have been saying bad things about PC Tools, some about Norton, and recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Can anyone give any input about what programs are better/worse or proven to make the system unstable? Would be much appreciated //Anna

Preferred Solution: programs compatible with windows 7?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: programs compatible with windows 7?

The error was most likely caused by out of date drivers (more than likely vista drivers) being loaded on the system. We see that here several times a day if not more. Many of the bsod problems in win 7 are either over zealous security programs, or bad drivers. The remaining few generally being caused by bad hard ware. The techs at the seller are rarely properly qualified to diagnose these issues. The people that are get higher paying jobs in the IT sector.

Anyhow if the problem occurs after you get it back you can follow the bsod posting instructions here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

and let the bsod troubleshooters here have a crack at helping you with it.

To start, I did a system reboot which completely wiped everything out. When I got my computer back up and running I attempted to reinstall all of my programs such as Office, Norton and my printer, however, I keep getting the same message with each program I attempt to install "this product is not compatible with this version of windows" paraphrased. I used my recovery disk to install, i've entered in the product key several times and it still will not work. attatched are screen shots of the messages I have been getting when trying to install programs. What can I do to get everything back up and running without having to do a full reboot again?

Here is an paragraph from an article listed at
http://www.winplanet.com/winplanet/tips/3502/1
TIP 7. Don't Ask for Virus Problems

Most users have antivirus software installed either at work or home. If you don't, you definitely need to invest, not only in a package of software, but in the subscription to the updates. Office XP is a new product and your antivirus software may not be compatible. All reputable vendors have upgrades to integrate with Office XP. If you are having problems with the latest updates for your antivirus software, contact the software vendor immediately and ask for the update/upgrade that is compatible with Office XP.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

However reviewing many AV products only one lists XP as compatible. Draw your own conclusion upon review. It is possible
the programs can be upgraded or already cover XP but their websites do not mention that.

I'm trying to find a way to keep specific programs from being added to my Recent Programs list on my start menu. (In my case, it's to keep programs in my Games folder from showing up since they are already easily found right off of the start menu.)

Reading around I keep seeing the same registry solution ("Add the title as a value to this specific key") but that particular example, as others later say, seems to only work on Vista.

Does anyone know of a method for Windows 7 that has been tested and verified will do the same thing?

A:Hide specific programs from being added to Recent Programs? (Windows 7)

It just occurred to me that I have a program installed (Revo Uninstaller Pro) that is actually doing what I am asking for here. It is a Start Menu shortcut like any other with no additional parameters.

Speaking theoretically, of course, would it be more likely something within the program itself (such as running the program and at the moment of running it deletes the shortcut) or possibly the solution to my problem found maybe in the registry?

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

One solution is to remove all of the entries/keys in the areas of ... Read more

If you need to run something that won't work on native Windows Seven, check the Virtualization sub forum for leads how to use XP Mode or Virtual Box or another to use XP with the particular software.

I want to install the AC3 filter on Windows 7, but the latest version - 1.63b - is from November 8 2009, and maybe not compatible with the new OS. Can anyone here confirm please?

TIA

Hello,

A Google search led me here so here's my question:

Would Visual C++ 4.0 correctly compile/assemble programs on a Windows XP system? By that I mean, I'm only trying to write, compile and debug a C++ program and will later transfer the sources onto a production machine running Visual C++ 6.0 and Windows Server 2003 and re-compile them there.

By job as a test engineer now involves writing code in C++ on the 6.0/Server 2003 platform. I would like to be able to work on some .cpp files at home. I have found a copy of VC 4.0 and have many XP machines so I was wondering if it's possible that such an old program like that would be compatible with a "modern" OS. My understanding is that 4.0 was developed for Windows 95 and NT. As XP is an extension of NT, would I not be able to install the Visual C++ IDE and expect it to work properly?

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but the programming conference didn't seem to be the right place for this question.

A:Visual C++ 4.0 compatible with Windows XP?

You aren't likely to get it to work. The much newer version 6.0 has/had known issues with XP.

"Check with manufactor for support."  I understand that Win 10 requires a DirectX 9 or later graphics card with WDDM 1.0 driver, but is there anyway I can upgrade using the Intel HD Grachics card that I recieved with my T460s that was just ordered 2 months ago?  I can't believe I was shipped a machine that is not compatible with the latest OS, although Win 7 was requested, there should be reason to believe Win 10 was in the near future. Is there any way, besides a clean install or replacig the graphics card that I can upgrade this machine to Win 10 using the Microsoft free click-to-upgrade? I have about 30 machines to upgrade to Win 10 and they all have Intel HD Graphics card.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

I appreciate any help. I am trying to install my comcast high speed internet (through ethernet using a cable modem) on a computer I just bought from someone who has windows 7 installed and the comcast message is telling me that the my operating system (windows nt 6.1) isn't meeting the minimum requirements to install and list every other prior operating system as those that meet the requirements. Is there a way I can install without having to wipe windows seven and install xp?

is the installation online (meaning web based) or offline (using some sort of media)
if its offline then you can use the compatibility wizard to shim it to think that its using another OS
if it is online you might try (if you are using firefox) user agent switcher to shim the online install to think its on a vista machine...
is this the RC or the RTM by any chance?
if it is the rc then you could also choose to download Virtual XP so you can do the install from there...

Does not recognize my Airport Extreme or Express even though they are working fine and recognized by my iMac in the other room. I currently stream iTunes via the iMac, but would prefer to use my Windows 8 machine. But, so far, no go with Airport and iTunes does not have a speaker selector (probably cuz Airport not working).

Is 5.6.1 not Windows 8 compatible? If not, is there a more recent version?

A:Airport 5.6.1 Not Windows 8 Compatible?

I thought Airport was a MAC OS only application?
