Windows 7 Momentum Update and Internet Explorer Guidance

This is a blowing your own horn posting, but the post does include some good links and information.  If your thinking of moving to WIN 7 anytime soon, this would be a page you would want to keep handy.

I have been using WIN7 since it was released and have had no issues, runs fast with no issues with anything not working, though I also had VISTA from almost the beginning as well with little to no problems. 

Great piece of information is that I run WIN7 on a Dual Core 1.8 with 2G and it’s great.    One reason you might want to look at CDI off lease products as we have both Dual Core and Core 2 Duo off-lease products available.

JUNK – Your new PC needs a cleaning!

You would think – if you get something new, you don’t have to do a major cleaning.  Not true with new PC’s, the manufacture puts so much stuff on your NEW system that the first thing I do is do a cleaning.  I have never really figured out a process and have always done it manually and that is OK for me, but what about all those other people who may not have the skill to do it.

Well I saw an article that suggested a FREE software tool that allows you to remove multiple programs all at once.  I have not tried it yet, but the source is good.

An easy way to decrapify your new PC

Of course the next step once you remove all the JUNK – is make a backup image of your system so that when and if you need to re-image your system – you can use a fresh clean install and not worry about the junk again.

Step by step process with or without using the software above:

Microsoft SP1 for WIN7 & Server 2008 R2 – Public BETA

Public Beta Now Available SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

Today, (July 12th) we announced at our annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) the availability of the public beta for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). As Gavriella Schuster and I have mentioned in previous blogs, SP1 for Windows 7 does not contain any new features specific to Windows 7. However, the new features in SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 benefit Windows 7 by providing a richer Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) experience.
