Logging in automatically Windows 7

Every time Windows ask us to log in with typing the user name and password. That is very useful when there are several people who have access to the computer, but somewhat uncomfortable if the computer is also for personal use or wish to have access for visitors.

To avoid ever entering the data, then find and start logging automatically.

Keep in mind that set the auto start can only make the team manager.

First we open the Start Menu, what can be done quickly by pressing Windows + R simultaneously.

In the search box you must type netplwiz and press Enter.

Then you have to click the user account name, so it is highlighted, which allows automatic start.

Now with the mouse must be disable the box that says: Users must enter a user name and password to use this equipment. (as shown in the picture).

Click Apply, and the system will ask us to confirm the user's key that we have previously highlighted (thus disables the log data prompted us). Once done press OK and the process is complete.

Windows 7 Mobile

As I discussed already can download the Microsoft Office 2010 officially. But it also has been known to accidentally some screenshot of the new Windows 7 Mobile.

The multinational has presented a decalogue with the main advantages of the new Office Mobile 2010, and one of them has mistakenly cast a screenshot of the new mobile operating system.

What if this is confirmed in March 2010 MIX conference in 2010, Microsoft will unveil what he has in mind on that operating system.

With this release is intended to recover lost time and regain market share against competition.

Backdoor in Windows 7

Since the early days after learning of Windows and Microsoft's collaboration with the security forces and order, has been speculating on the possibility that were included as standard Windows backdoor which would allow authorities to remotely access any computer where it was Windows installed in a completely transparete for users.

After the news became known that the NSA Security Agency (United States) was working hand in hand with the development of safety critical parts of the new Microsoft operating system. Saute all alarms, anyone imagined the CIA and even FBI entering their computers without even ask for court orders under the slightest suspicion of criminal activity, terrorism, pedophilia, pornography simple in some countries, etc.

Microsoft went immediately to step ensuring that neither the NSA nor any other institution or organization had installed security systems to access Windows 7 in an unauthorized manner and that neither had in the past, never, ever. But ... who can trust a system whose code is closed?

Office 2010 Starter for Free

Microsoft will allow Office 2010 download for free. But the free version is not complete, which is going to offer free Office 2010 Starter.

A priori we could prove it has left dissappointed. The basic features of Word and Excel are virtually identical to the full retail versions and the advertising that appears not too intrusive.

In addition, we remind you that Microsoft has yet to present the online version of office, which is formally known by Microsoft Office Web Apps whose mission is to counteract the free offers competitors offer, such as Google Docs.

Paint.net
Although not included as standard comes with Office 2010, we believe it is a great complement for those users who also want to have a basic photo editor and free. Paint.net is a great option for editing images in Windows 7 for free.

Install Windows 7 with a simple update

Good, now you can also your Windows 7 update. How to install on a virgin machine, even without an XP or Vista upgrade? It's very simple...

You should know that installing a Windows 7 update on a virgin machine of any OS is possible except that you can not activate Windows (not an old license XP or Vista). For how to get the pill, just follow these steps:

1. Install Windows 7 on the machine.
2. Cut the internet connection and prevent any update from Windows Update.
3. Go to the registry: Start -> Run -> regedit.
4.Go to the

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE/

5. Set the MediaBootInstall value 1 to 0.
6. Close regedit.
7. Make "Start" and type cmd to see the icon to the MSDOS command prompt. Right click it and choose "Run as administrator" (or something like that)
8. In the MSDOS command prompt, type: "slmgr / rearm" then make entry
Reboot and when Windows 7 is loaded, run the activation program. Enter your product key and activate Windows ...
Oops, what ...

Otherwise, many of you ask me what I think of this OS ... it's been several months since I use it on my computer in RC version and what I can tell you that it is very stable very fast and certainly less annoying to use than Vista.

In short, although I am a heavy user of Linux, in all objectivity Windows Seven is a good thought that I recommend to all those who drag their XP for years and want change without having to suffer the same boat with Vista. Microsoft has really challenged this version and I think you will not be disappointed if you test ...

Microsoft Windows 7 32bits and 64bits

Here I have a concern. I migrated my Vista 64-bit Windows 7 to 64 bits, so far it goes.

Windows 7 does not appeal to me and I wanted to go back under my vista, the concern is that the remediation system which is on my hard drive (so I have no CD) did not want to start.

By mistake, or rather out of desperation, I went back to XP 32 bit, then I went back in another version of Windows 7 but compatible 32-bit.
And now I want to go back to Windows 7 64-bit.

My setup will allow me:
Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion p6145
6GB of RAM
2.33 GHz 4-core Processor
1TB HDD
1GB Graphqiue Card

The goal is to get the rest of the memory that is not supported by the 32-bit.

Of course, when I launch the CD in Boot Mode (Windows 7 64-bit version) it gives me nothing and on the desktop, it says it is not supported due to its 64-bit inconsistent with the 32.

Is-it's hopeless or Is there a glimmer of hope?

Your DVD Windows 7 should be linked to a license update, which requires the presence of a legal Windows already installed and activated.

It must also architecture (32 or 64 bits) is the same between OS departure and arrival. This is not the case and can not "migrate" from a Windows 32-bit to 64-bit Windows without a format the system partition.

Windows 7 for students

Microsoft has a program that allows students to get Windows 7 family premium for a ridiculous price. Must provide proof that it is studying as an email address not provided the institution (if they provide one) or pdf proof as our class schedule, a registration certificate, etc.. If they get an e-mail is instantaneous, but otherwise they must conduct audits. It's been over a week I sent the pdf to my certificate of registration and I still have not received the email from Microsoft Canada. Is there any students from college in Quebec who have received their email to buy Windows 7?

Microsoft has an office on the boulevard Laurier, I wonder if people who work there can speed things up ...

Windows 7 notebook transforms into wireless access point

A Philadelphia developer managed to uncover a feature that was left unfinished in Windows 7, where it is capable of transforming any notebook running on Windows 7 into a wireless access point. This Enables other Wi-Fi-enabled devices to share the connection without the need for additional software. This new "Virtual Wi-Fi" feature in Windows 7 was in turn used to Develop Connectify, a free application Which hit the internet last Friday as a beta. Chances are Nomadio would be a shareware program in its final release, so make hay while the sun shines at the moment!

Repair Windows 7 mbr

I have a laptop, my hard drive into two partitions, one with Windows 7, the other with Ubuntu.
Yesterday I formatted my Ubuntu partition (which really helped me more) to save XP Instead compatibility issue. Except that my XP cd is too scratched, he has planted the setup, but the rub is that he has screwed up my Mbr ...
So I boot the liveCD ubuntu, have re-installed, history of having an OS and a mbr, except that in grub when I chose Windows Longhorn j'atteri to a black screen, and I must reboot ( I think the mbr reminds himself that there had XP, but not booted because it no longer exists.) and nothing allows me to access my Windows 7.

in Command Prompt to run.

Or you can type "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" in the Command Prompt to repair your system partition or all partitions.
4. Restart your computer and your windwos 7 can appear again.

Synchronization of directories and files

For those who want to make backups of type "directory synchronization, there is a free tool, lightweight and efficient Microsoft (unfortunately only in English) that can create" folders synchronized pairs "that SyncToy is in 32 and 64 bits.
It is very easy to define a number of "pairs of directories" qeu can simply sync => what is changed on one side (on your PC) is postponed to another (on a laptop, external drive, internal, memory stick or any other physical media).

This tool can replace the function "Offline Folders" available in versions and Professional Fundamentals XP / Vista / 7.

Step by step:

1 Create a pair of directories

2 Define the type of synchronization:
* Synchronize = New files and changed files are copied both ways, deletions and name changes are also included in both directions.
* Echo = New files and changed files are copied left to right, deletions and name changes are passed from left to right.
* Contribute = New files and changed files are copied left to right, the renamed files are passed from left to right, but not deletes.

3 Naming the pair created

4 Adjust the settings files

Here you can include or exclude certain file types via the "*". Eg: exclude *. mpg or *. mp3 if you do not want to overload the backup with videos or music

5 Perform the first synchronization.
Synchronization is also faster than what can your drives and your hardware.

Windows 7 will sell 3x better than Vista

A study by the NDP, Microsoft had sold 234% of box Windows 7 October 22 of that last box of Windows Vista on the day of its launch.

There is still a caveat. It did not sell as many computers embarking 7 that during the release of his unfortunate ancestor (6% lower than at launch in 2007). It is true that Vista was launched in January, the best month for sales of computers that October and manufacturers offered fewer machines updates this year than two years ago. On October 22, 2009, 20% of systems incorporating a former OS, against only 6% in January 2007.

In conclusion, it is still too early to take stock of the popularity of Windows 7, Christmas is the real test, we can already say that Microsoft starts on solid foundations.

Then i installed an emu 0404 soundcard, because my sound stuttert.After installtion fnisish sound stopped. So I removed the Emu after problems.It's No sound now. Any one help me?

How to solve it?
The best thing to do IMO is to uninstall all sound devices in 'Device Manager'.
Then scan for hardware changes. This will force Windows to re-configure and if need be, download from Windows Update and install the sound card. This will also set all defaults to the newly installed (old ) sound device.

It seems that WMP54GR adapter has no 64bit driver for Windows 7 yet, so that means it can't work with Windows 7.

Sun Open Office Issue

When I try to install Sun Open Office 3 in my computer running Windows 7 RC build 7100 64 bit,after restart the computer freezes.Anyone has the same problem?Do it work for you?

I have open office installed and running just fine on win 7 RC1 7100 32bit version. It works fine

I hear 32-bit only, as I could install but not run in 64-bit windows 7,the same build. So the problem is either me, or my ME mark VII box.

I'll tackle it later when I have another spare hard drive to test.

Ethernet Connection Drop issue

I am having trouble when it's actually ethernet cable...my card is realtec RTL8139\810x,i'm connected via university using telnet.the internet is falling every 5-20 minutes...
My connection drops on average about 15mins, with torrent, skype, and msn running. it's really annoying to have to troubleshoot every 15-20mins!!.. anyone found a solution to this??

What ethernet card you have, what router model, firmware and the rest of the obvious network information and anything else pertinent about this issue, the more detail the better

mod may want to merge this thread with about 2 others, just from today alone, and probably a few more could be found just from the past week. Am wondering if this is really a big issue or is it all user/system/network specific.

Ableton Live Works fine

Ableton Live is music/DJ production use for Mac OS and Windows. .I'm not sure how many people use this software.
I have fully tested it in windown 7.It works fine.With my midi USB controller, I mixed a full set in it
Every day I use it, and now i find it to be more stable then in vista.
