I just installed W7 in a quad boot with Vista 32, 64 and XP 32. Downloading, burning, installing updating and getting into WoW took me a total of 2.5 hours.

So, everything is working great, with one minor exception: when in WoW (WotLK), the mouse pointer does not move, but the OS knows where the mouse is because it will highlight the buttons as I hover over them, so in essence it's like an invisible mouse.

Any thoughts on this?

WoW works better than ever for me. I left it installed on my E: drive and just ran the launcher to play it once Win 7 was installed.

Yeah, I did the same thing - just executed from the installation directory without re-installing the game and normally that works fine.

I wonder if increasing the size of the pointer caused a glitch.

I got AVG Free working as well. The only thing that hasn't worked for me is my Alps touchpad drivers on my laptop. They installed fine, and had all the appropriate options available, but on reboot UAC kept popping up asking if I wanted to allow the drivers to run (hidfind.exe, and one or two others that it loads). I selected to allow, but the systray icon and control panel options are gone. Tried reinstalling, no luck.
Other working apps:
Firefox
I9KFanGUI

same thing happens with RS Vegas 2 on the autoplay menu.

Anyone having any issues with GTA4? I can't get it too run and I keep getting the 'Failure to launch' pop up.

I don't think it is a result of Win7 but I thought I would ask anyway.
