Windows 7 Bugs

Here is a short list of some of the Windows 7 bugs I have discovered.

  • Microsoft Excel 2007 locks up (often!).
  • Unable to force close some locked up tasks (Excel 2007).
  • Virtual PC 2005 issues with screen refresh.
  • Windows Start Menu – Unable to modify All Users do to permissions (On Vista, you would get a get a UAC warning – On Windows 7 you get a message that the file is in use)
  • Unable to copy programs into the "Program Files" folder do to permissions.  (On Vista, you would get a UAC warning – On Windows 7 you get a message that the file is in use)
  • Windows Media Player does not have the toolbar feature.
  • Alcohol 120% and Daemon Tools no longer work on Windows 7. 
  • Windows notification area (system try) items do not respect hide/unhide settings.
  • Windows notification area (system try); when showing hidden items is "always on top".  This makes it hard to see the notification/program you are trying to access.
  • Sometimes when deleting a file, the file deletes, but an icon still remains.  The icon will display a generic image and cannot be deleted.  If you try, you will get a UAC prompt and then told that you don’t have premission.  This icon will disappear when you reboot.
