This is where things get trick. After the installation is done, when reaching the screen that says "Starting Windows", nothing happens. I am stuck on that screen ans Windows 7 won't start. Anyone has and idea why is this happening ? Thank You

    Windows 7 Settings Error

    Hello guys, I had this sudden settings error yesterday on my Windows 7 Pro x64. All was fine until I realized the below errors. 1- The default view chosen for every folder was reset to default. Now I am not able to chose a view settings for a certain folder without it being converted back to the default once I close that folder. 2- The System icons near the clock on taskbar keeps hiding themselves. Now the taskbar chooses what needs to be hidden and what needs to be shown. Even thought I drag the wanted icons to be shown, once I restart the laptop, the icons revert to being hidden. Don't know what triggered such error. Is there any recommended fix ?

    Hp Drivers Needed !!

  5. Government Planning to Replace Windows 7 with Linux, Not Windows 10 With support for Windows 7 coming to an end in January 2020, more and more organizations and governments across the world are expected to begin the transition to Windows 10 in the coming months. But as far as the South Korean government is concerned, sticking with Windows is no longer an option, so the country is now gearing up for a massive move to Linux. The reason is as simple as it could be, according to information published by The Korea Herald: the government aims for reduced costs, as paying for licenses would no longer be necessary. While specifics on what Linux distro they want to embrace are not available, it looks like the first step towards this migration to the open-source world is a security audit that should help the government determine if their data is protected or not. Windows 7 EOL set of January 14, 2020 South Korean authorities are ready to spend some $655 million on the entire program, which includes not only the switch itself to Linux, but also new computers. However, the process will take place one step at a time, and it first includes a testing stage to find out “if the system could be run on private networked devices without security risks.” The South Korean government also wants to determine if their internal solutions can run on Linux, as this is obviously a challenge since they were originally developed with Windows in mind. Whether or not the South Korean government will switch to Linux is something that remains to be seen, but without a doubt, this can’t be good news for Microsoft. In fact, this decision to embrace Linux is living proof that with the Windows 7 end-of-support approaching, not everyone would be switching to Windows 10, but stepping closer to a non-Windows world too.

  6. Windows 7 Not Giving Up, Resisting Microsoft’s Windows 10 Upgrade Push Windows 7 barely declined last month, according to new market share data, despite Microsoft beginning a new Windows 10 upgrade offensive and prompting users to move to its latest OS version with desktop notifications. NetMarketShare figures show that Windows 10 improved its market share during the month, growing from 43.62% to 44.10%. Windows 7, on the other hand, declined only a little, dropping from 36.52% to 36.43%.The Windows 10 pushLast month, Microsoft started showing upgrade notifications on Windows 7 in anticipation of the end-of-support due to take place in January 2020. Microsoft hopes that following this approach, more Windows 7 users would become aware of the approaching milestone and upgrade their devices to Windows 10 in order to continue receiving security updates. The transition is likely to become a difficult effort for Microsoft, especially as many users are expected to refuse the upgrade and stick with Windows 7 even after the end of support. And the stats here confirm that not everyone is willing to move to Windows 10, albeit I expect the number of users making the switch to increase as we approach the January 2020 deadline. Meanwhile, Windows 8.1 has also managed to increase its market share, which is more or less surprising given that all eyes are on Windows 7 and Windows 10 these days. Windows 8.1 jumped from 4.13% to 4.22% last month, so it recorded only a minor increase. When it comes to non-Windows platforms, macOS 10.14 recorded a small decline, dropping from 5.40% to 5.23%, according to the same figures. The adoption of Windows 10 is likely to continue in the coming months, especially as Microsoft introduces a new feature update later this month. The bigger challenge, however, is to convince users it’s time to let Windows 7 go before the end-of-support is reached next January. Source
  7. No Surprise: Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge Running Smoothly on Windows 7 Despite the fact that Microsoft hasn’t yet announced the preview build of its Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser, the most tech-savvy users out there rushed to install an early version of the browser that got leaked on various file-sharing websites. And despite being in its early days, this Microsoft Edge version allows us to get a taste of how the Redmond-based software giant sees the future of Windows browsing based on Chromium. While this isn’t necessarily surprising, it looks like the existing leaked Edge builds run smoothly on Windows 7 as well, as discovered in a series of tests. The new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge won’t be exclusive to Windows 10, and given its new engine, it will also be released on older Windows versions as well. In other words, yes, the new Edge will also run on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, so there you go, seeing this leaked build running so smoothly on the 2009 operating system is something that was expected.Possibly coming to Linux tooWorth noting is that Microsoft also wants to release the new browser on macOS, and there’s a good chance that a Linux version would be announced at some point as well. While the Linux release hasn’t been announced, it makes sense for Microsoft to look into such a project, not only because of the Chromium engine available cross-platform, but also as a result of its “Microsoft loves Linux” push. For the time being, we’re still waiting for the moment Microsoft gives the green light to the official preview build of the new Edge browser. The company only said this would happen in early 2019, but no further specifics were offered. As for the ETA of the stable browser, little is known at this point, but it’s pretty clear that the company takes its time on this, as it wants the new Edge to be a truly capable browser on all supported platforms.

  8. Microsoft Brings DirectX 12 to Windows 7 Microsoft has just announced that it brings DirectX 12 to Windows 7 specifically to improve the gaming performance in some specific titles. The first to benefit from this release is World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, as Microsoft says that it worked together with Blizzard to make the whole thing happen. Blizzard has apparently recorded major performance improvements on Windows 10 thanks to DirectX 12, and the company specifically reached out to Microsoft to see how the same results can be achieved on Windows 7. The result is a Windows 7 version of Direct X 12, which was exclusively released for Windows 10, with no port so far for the previous versions of the operating system. “At Microsoft, we make every effort to respond to customer feedback, so when we received this feedback from Blizzard and other developers, we decided to act on it,” DirectX program manager Jianye Lu explains. “Microsoft is pleased to announce that we have ported the user mode D3D12 runtime to Windows 7. This unblocks developers who want to take full advantage of the latest improvements in D3D12 while still supporting customers on older operating systems.“Other games to follow soonBlizzard is thus rolling out for the new DirectX version on Windows 7 with game patch 8.1.5 for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, so gamers who haven’t yet upgraded to Windows 10 should see a noticeable framerate boost after installing this update. Microsoft says it’s already working with other game developers to get support for DirectX 12 on Windows 7, but no specifics can be provided at the moment. Needless to say, Microsoft reminds everyone that Windows 10 provides much more refined gaming experience thanks to native DirectX 12 implementation. “Windows 10 has critical OS improvements which make modern low-level graphics APIs (including DirectX 12) run more efficiently. If you enjoy your favorite games running with DirectX 12 on Windows 7, you should check how those games run even better on Windows 10!” it says. Source
  9. Windows 7: What is your company's exit strategy? If your business is still running on Windows 7, it's time to get serious about how you're going to handle the January 14, 2020 end of support. Here are your four options. If your business is still running on Windows 7, you have some important decisions to make, and not a lot of time remaining. Windows 7 support officially ends in less than a year, on January 14, 2020. After that date, Microsoft will stop delivering security updates automatically, and by then most third-party vendors will have dropped support as well. Most businesses completed their planning for migration to Windows 10 long ago and are in the final stages of implementing that plan. If you're still procrastinating, it's time to get serious. (And just to make sure you're aware of the upcoming deadline, Microsoft is about to start displaying pop-up notifications on Windows 7 PCs.) You have, by my calculation, four options. Which one you choose depends on why your organization is still clinging to Windows 7. If the main reason is inertia, you'll need to find something to motivate yourself. You could, for example, calculate the costs of cleaning up after a successful ransomware attack that spreads over your network, including the loss of business while you scramble to recover. If you're in a regulated industry, you might want to find out whether running an unsupported operating system puts you at compliance risks, which can result in hefty fines and a loss of business when customers find out. The other possible deployment blocker is a compatibility problem. For most Windows 7 apps, compatibility shouldn't be an issue. If your business depends on specialized hardware or line-of-business software that absolutely will not run on Windows 10, you might be able to make a case for paying to extend the support deadline. But that just delays the inevitable by a year or two, or at most three. Your search for a replacement should be well under way by now. So, what are your options? Because I know that at least a dozen people will offer one particular suggestion in the comments to this post, let me bring it up right at the top of the list. OPTION 1: SWITCH TO LINUX. Something tells me that most businesses that have stuck with Windows 7 until nearly the bitter end have already considered and rejected this option. That's especially the case for those businesses that are constrained by compatibility issues related to a mission-critical Windows app. But sure, if you're willing to completely replace your desktop infrastructure and switch out every productivity app you use, that's a preferable alternative to the next option on the list. OPTION 2: DO NOTHING. On January 25, 2020, Windows 7 won't stop working. In fact, you're unlikely to notice any changes. If you feel lucky, this is certainly an option. You might even consider the lack of monthly updates a welcome feature. Spoiler alert: This is a very bad idea, one that exposes you to all manner of possible bad outcomes. If you absolutely must keep one or more Windows 7 PCs in operation, perhaps because they're running a critical app or controlling a piece of old but essential hardware, the best advice I can offer is to completely disconnect that machine from the network and lock it down so that it only runs that one irreplaceable app. OPTION 3: PAY FOR EXTENDED SUPPORT. When Windows XP support ended in April 2014, Microsoft offered to continue delivering patches for XP devices owned by large organizations that paid for Custom Support Agreements. But those contracts didn't come cheap. Only very large enterprise customers could even qualify for one, and then the cost was literally millions of dollars, as my colleague Mary Jo Foley discovered. For Windows 7, the extended support option is far more democratic. In September 2018, Microsoft announced its plan to offer paid Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESUs). You won't need megabucks, either: Although Microsoft has yet to publish a price list, an insider tells me that the annual cost for an ESU contract will be $50 per device, with that price tag going up to $100 in year two and $200 in year three. That escalating price schedule is intended to serve as a disincentive to Windows 7 users who might otherwise be tempted to kick the can a little further down the road. Customers who have paid for Windows Software Assurance contracts or who have Windows 10 Enterprise or Education subscriptions will get a discount but will still be subject to significant price hikes in years 2 and 3. You can eliminate the extra cost of Windows 7 Extended Security Updates completely if you move your workloads to virtual machines in Microsoft's Azure cloud. That option will be available using the new Windows Virtual Desktop option, which should be available as a preview soon. For businesses that only need to virtualize individual line-of-business applications, this could be a cost-effective option. OPTION 4: BITE THE BULLET AND UPGRADE. If you don't have any compatibility issues that need to be addressed first, the simplest and most straightforward route is to put together a deployment plan and begin executing it. But the details of tha plan matter, especially if you want to avoid the headaches of the "Windows as a service" model. As always, of course, the easiest upgrade path is via hardware replacement. Any device that's five years old or more is an obvious candidate for recycling. Devices that were designed for Windows 10 and then downgraded to Windows 7 should be excellent candidates for in-place upgrades, after first making sure that the systems have the most recent BIOS/UEFI firmware updates. One not-so-obvious factor to consider is which Windows 10 edition to deploy. The obvious choice for most businesses is Windows 10 Pro, but I strongly suggest considering an additional upgrade to the Enterprise (or Education) edition. Yes, machines running Windows 10 Pro allow your admins to defer feature updates, but the support schedule for Enterprise/Education is significantly longer: a full 30 months, as opposed to 18 months for Pro (For a description of the new support schedule, including a chart that explains how the new schedule works, see "Windows 10 Enterprise customers will now get Linux-like support.") The other advantage of moving to the Enterprise/Education editions is the availability of a new support offering called Desktop App Assure. If you encounter a compatibility issue during the upgrade, you file a support ticket and get engineering support to resolve the issue. For most businesses, the Windows Enterprise E3 and E5 subscription options are probably the easiest and most cost-effective here. Whichever option you choose, though, now's the time to get to work. That ticking sound is only going to get louder as January 2020 approaches. Source
  10. Windows 10 has finally taken over Windows 7 in terms of usage. The OS, first released back in 2015, now has more users than Windows 7, according to Net Market Share’s latest report. Windows 10 was lagging behind Windows 7, arguably one of the most popular versions of Windows to date. According to Net Market Share, however, Windows 10 now has a usage share of 39.22%, beating Windows 7’s 36.90% usage share. That’s as of December 2018. The achievement is a big one for Redmond. Still, the software giant has a huge year ahead for itself, and that 36.90% usage share of Windows 7 is a major portion of the entire Windows userbase. Majority of Window 7 users continue to be enterprise customers, and Microsoft will have to continue pushing these businesses to slowly make the shift to Windows 10. That’s not an easy job, for sure, but considering Windows 10 is now the most popular version of Windows, the complete shift will happen eventually. Microsoft originally hoped for Windows 10 to get a billion active devices within the first two/three years of release, and that, of course, didn’t end up happening. Although Windows 10’s usage rocketed up when the OS first launched, it’s no secret the growth has slowed down ever since the end of the free upgrade offer for older versions of Windows. We still can’t overlook the fact that Microsoft’s Windows 10 has been growingly steadily over the years, and the company’s Windows as a Service plan has worked out pretty well. But now that Windows 10 is practically the most popular OS in the world, with macOS (as a whole) being used by 9.61% of users and Linux claiming 2.09%, Microsoft’s dominance in the desktop world will continue to make the company relevant in the consumer world. The company has a huge year ahead of itself — with one big Windows 10 update expected in the first half of the year, and another in the second. Microsoft has focused on creativity and productivity in Windows 10 for the past feature updates, and the company’s focus will likely continue to be on productivity this year. Happy new year! Source
