Take a look:
"I have heard somthing about a SECRET mail client that came with win7 but it is hidden in a directory. Have you heard of this?."
I haven't looked up much about Windows 7 yet.
I certainly had to look up a lot of things I discovered or wanted to know how to do after I had installed Vista.
- Apparently, if you dual boot XP and Vista (and probably 2000 and Vista), EVERY TIME you boot XP (or 2000 ?), ALL the System Restore restore points are lost in Vista.
Microsoft has two workarounds, but one, using Bitlocker, is only available to you if you have the more expensive Ultimate or Business versions of Vista, and the other may not work with all programs you can use in Vista.
I got around that by using a third party boot manager program BootIt! NG that can hide the Vista partition (the one Vista's Windows is on) from the XP Windows partition while booting from the XP partition, that is also 100% compatible with Vista's Hibernate/Standby support ($35 USD).
As far as I know the same applies to Windows 7.
- Vista has a Administrator User, but by default it's hidden from the computer user. It can be easily enabled if you look up how to do it, though. It's the only user that has admnistrator rights that same as in XP.
I don't know if that applies to Windows 7.
