I'm using these drivers for my 64-bit W7 install. I have not played any games on W7 yet - with any GPU drivers.

Call of Duty WAW would lock up my entire rig. It was the only game I tried. I used the 181.20 drivers on my GTX295. I have no idea what was causing it, but I went back to Vista for now.

You mean you deleted the W7 install or just went into Vista for CoD?

Also, 295GTX is kind of new...

Somethings annoying me! ... see the task bar(below) when i start messenger and close it so its runnning in the backround it dont minimize to the lower right! ... it just stays over there on the left hand side, if i right click that and klick close window it shuts down messenger! ... anybody know of a way to i can get the messenger icon to be on the right hand side of the taskbar so its running in the backround like it used to with xp/vista?



EDIT: Also just noticed that with CCleaner when cleaning the registry when scanning for issues and fixing the issues found, if you do another scan it finds exactly the same issues! ... CCleaner dont work!

Those complaints are so petty. You get used to the changes that Vista made (which for the most part are inherited but improved in Win7). If you can't change with the times then you can keep your XP. I loved XP but it's fairly obvious why many of the changes were made to it. You get used to them quick. I'm liking Windows 7 so far but I feel like it is what Vista should have been.

when ever a new OS is out, be very careful with stuff like registry scanners

*assumption*

So is that guy just talking about the UI being different and him not being used to it and feeling a bit frustrated and lost as a result? For example, when I tried Vista I also found the explorer changes a bit unfavorable, now however they are just fine and I can benefit from the new UI.

W7 does also have a slightly different interface to Vista and I'm not too at home with it , for now I guess.

Oh, another blog entry from that site that I read, and as you JasonPC said, this post could be put onto the same page, as this guys's "complaints" more or less imply that he does not understand what a "beta" is...

EDIT: HA!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Look what I did:


... this is while adding about 200 songs to a playlist, from the newly recognized 2nd hard drive. A few seconds later is was responsive.

Thought right now when I scroll down the list randomly and either start a new song or right click on it it does take a few seconds to respond.
