  1. can we will be able to install our normal software like foxitreader neero and motherboard drivers etc on win 7.Do they really work on win 7 or the programs will officually release for win 7

    Quick reply plz

  2. Thank you!

    I had to do this to be able to access the Windows 7 admin shares from other PCs in the house.

  3. Please, might I offer some constructive criticism? If you are writing a little instruction manual for potentially millions of people to read, at least take the time to make sure it’s not absolutely riddled with spelling/grammar mistakes.

    It is obvious the writer’s first language is not English. And yet they have taken the trouble to write this to help people. The article is still understandable, and a lot more literate than a lot of stuff online. Also among English speakers, are people who are dyslexic like myself. So I think it is petty to complain about spelling and grammar, unless it is an official publication. It is also cowardly to complain anonymously!

  5. Its easily understood, Stop being picky, you understood it didn’t you and as previously stated its cowardly to complain as an unknown member….. I’m not a member so can’t sign in…

    Anywayssss.. Thankyou for the article it was very helpful to me :)

  6. Try this. My UAC was already set to Never.
    Changed to Always – clicked OK
    Changed back to Never – clicked OK and rebooted
    Probably forced the change. Who knows?
