Further on the compatibility problems I mentioned. I did have problems initially with the anti-virus. Microsoft has quoted Trend Micro, among others, as having a compatible anti-virus, and since I am a big Trend Micro fan, I went to their site to get a trial version. I looked at the options available and (me being me! ) chose the PRO version. I found that I was getting a BSOD (blue screen of death) regularly, and Windows was clearly indentifying Trend Micro as the cause.On returning to their website, I discovered that there is only one version of Trend Micro that is suitable for Windows7. The PRO version which I had downloaded was not the one!I uninstalled PRO and installed the correct, dedicated version of Trend Micro, and haven't had a problem at all since.With Nero, I installed version 184.108.40.206. Windows has warned me that this version isn't compatible, but allowed me to install it anyway. So far I have run into no problems at all, but when I do, a wizard will pop up offering to fix the problems by using an XP compatibility mode. This wizard didn't work with the anti-virus, but I am hoping it will work with Nero. I will let you know if I run into problems, and how well windows copes with dealing with them.
