comment Does using a certain kind of numbers make a good password?
Why don't you just put a three digit number in your password instead of a special non-ASCII character? You would get the same effect anyway.

comment Can I install windows 7 x64 in a VPC where the host is vista x86?
The current release of Virtual PC (version 2007) actually doesn't support x64 guest OS's at all. I think the new Windows Virtual PC for Windows 7 will; I hope.

comment Internet connection under Windows Vista stops working until reboot
It may help the problem, but you generally don't want to stop getting updates altogether. It'll be better to nail down the issue and get it fixed.

comment Internet connection under Windows Vista stops working until reboot
I had a similar problem with an Belkin card in my desktop that uses Atheros hardware/drivers running on Windows 7. I have since stopped using the wireless card and now use a wired connection instead. The card doesn't have any good drives for Windows 7 so that was my only option besides getting a newer wireless card that is "certified" to support Vista/7.

Actually you can always right-click any EXE and select "Run as Administrator" to elevate its privileges.

comment does Windows 7 come with something like Virtual PC built in?
Actually Windows 7 does support the ability to Boot the machine from a VHD. So really you can use them as both a data drive and a boot disk. It's not virtualization since it runs on the bare hardware so you get the full performance of the machine when booting from VHDs.

comment What are the non compatible changes from WinXP to Windows 7?
One thing to keep in mind is that Windows XP Mode will only be available with Windows 7 Ultimate and Business editions. It will not be available with Windows 7 Home Premium. As far as I know, unless they've changed it.

Um... Aero isn't a feature that's only available in Win7 Ultimate. It's in Home Premium too.

comment Windows 7 Ultimate on a netbook
Win7 Ultimate will run just fine without Aero. If your graphics aren't powerful enough, then Aero will just be disabled and the OS will run just fine.
