I am a student studying information technology and hoping to work in the IT industry in the future.

I am most comfortable in any language with curly braces. I would most like to explore web and embeded device development

revised What does end of Windows XP support in 2014/04 mean for the end users?
Separated events for which I have sources from events which I know will occur, but do not have a time-frame for.

comment What does end of Windows XP support in 2014/04 mean for the end users?
@Tomas I disagree that point 4 is speculative, none of the major browser vendors currently support Windows 98 for example, further to that as Internet Explorer is itself a component of Windows, no version of Internet Explorer will be supported on Windows XP after EOL, and the fact that no modern versions of Firefox or Chrome officially supports any of the legacy Windows versions is fairly strong historical evidence that EOL will cause the comparability issues described eventually. I will however mark the events I have sources for as confirmed, as requested.

comment Windows 7 NVIDIA driver update error
In order to use an NVIDIA driver you must have an NVIDIA graphics card currently installed. Based on the question it's unclear whether you have upgraded the card (ie. removed the Intel card and installed an NVIDIA one) or are simply trying to install the NVIDIA driver without an NVIDIA card installed. The latter will not work because the driver is specific to the hardware and an Intel card is not the same as an NVIDIA one in this respect.

comment DIfferences between firmware and middleware and device driver?
To address the other parts of the question more directly (in my opinion, hence not editing the CW answer) 1. The BIOS is firmware. 2. The bootloader is niether of the three. It is an application which executes in the enviornment established by the BIOS 3. The instruction set of a CPU is a component of the CPU, though software is expressed in instructions, they are not themselves software 4. Most middleware is software not firmware.

comment Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit freezes frequently at random times
Ctrl+Alt+Del is the key combination used to bring up task manager, not Ctrl+Del. Is this what you meant? If so you can edit the question to correct this by clicking the edit link underneath the question
