Specs: Windows 7 Starter
My screen is 10.1" with a native resolution of 1024 x 600. Win 7 Starter likely has limitations in customizing some settings.The biggest issue is with forms and dialogue boxes - I can't access important "buttons" , type in security codes, complete some important tasks,etc. I have tried moving and re-sizing windows, removing "bars" from the top, and, re-sizing text, and zooming in/out. I believe I had done something to correct it at one time, then a couple of months ago I noticed some web games could no longer be played. I can't restore back that far. Haven't tried the Event Viewer,don't know how far back it goes or,really what to look for. I will try anything at this point.

why they ever put in starter kits I'll never know...kind've a cop-out I guess. Why not upgrade to win7? Not too expensive and it will be the leader for many years to come.

I see symptoms like when people tried windows 7 and didn't register it...after awhile the functions started to deteriate...I have no idea if a starter kit does that.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Thank you for taking time to reply, but it doesn't help my situation. Of course I plan to upgrade,but right now I can't afford to. That's why I had to buy a $200 notebook when my good Compaq laptop took a dump. It's not right that I can't even click on "apply" to set my homepage,ect.I seem to recall there is a way to do those things using the keyboard. Got rid of my old books regarding the older OS's,though.
