comment “windows is searching for a solution” popup box
While I agree sending the data would be helpful there is nothing more frustrating that watching that dialog spin endlessly only to (in my experience never find a solution) - worst case scenario I'd like an option to auto-re-start the application while it wastes time looking for a solution.

comment Browser dialogs (Alert, Confirm, & Prompt) not longer working in Internet Explorer & Firefox on a specific Windows install
@techie007 correct, this is something in "Windows" that is broken/turned off as it affects Firefox to. I'd almost assume that any call the the standard MsgBox() feature in the windows API would also fail (though I haven't tested this).

comment Will all Windows 7 applications run on Windows 8?
It should be noted that for a Windows 8 "RT" tablet none of your existing apps will work because of the new architecture (without being re-compiled) AND there is a limit to the number of concurrent apps you can run at once.

comment Make Internet Explorer 7 always get the latest version of a page?
Although this setting will solve issues for you as you develop your site, BE SURE to set your HTTP Headers correctly on your final production web server... as most users should have the "Automatic" setting selected in IE to allow proper caching as web servers direct.
