Hmm, Interesting. I can't seem to get AVG Free to work. I keep getting an error in the Action Center.

Vista drivers work in Windows 7. A few sound card drivers might require compatibility mode for Windows Vista but drivers that work in Vista will work in 7.

Same Punkbuster kick in Battlefield 2142. Someone posted in the EA Forum that Even Balance does not intend to make Punkbuster compatible with Win 7 until the final release. Bummer.

My STEAM BioShock will not work.

It shows the splash screen and then simply goes to a black screen.

UPDATE: Installing DirectX Redist fixed it.
