    Windows 7 X64 upgrade

    Would this work? I basically create a 20GB partition on my existing 200GB OS drive which has Vista X64 on it. I install Windows 7 on the new 20GB partition and slowly expand this partitions size as I copy things over from the Vista X64 partition. Eventually I delete the Vista X64 partition...

    Windows 7 X64 upgrade

    Has anyone upgraded from Vista X64 to Windows 7 X64? I'd like to know whether its a good idea to upgrade over Vista X64 and whether all settings like favourites, desktop icons and other stuff like program settings are retained in the upgrade. Thanks.

    IE8 and tabs opening order

    In IE7, any new tabs would open next to the tab currently being viewd but now the tabs are opening at the end of the current tabs. What setting do I need to change to make the tab opening order like it was in IE7? Thanks.

    Earth tremor?

    It was working when I posted and its working now :yowch: Its downgraded to a 5.2. Still quite a powerful quake, one of the most powerful in the last 25 years of UK history with the 1984 quake surpassing this one at 5.4 on the richter scale.

    Renaming a device?

    Thanks Fitz, I'll give that a try but will backup my registry first or create a system restore beforehand. ------- I just tried it and there were no grey items in device manager. Very strange.

    Renaming a device?

    I uninstalled a driver for my network card and when I reinstalled it, the device name looks like this under Device Manager: I don't quite understand why the device name is appended with a #3 instead of looking like this which is how it was before: How can I fix this? Thanks!
