windows 7 media player autorun
I know this is a vista group but i don't see a windows 7 group
i had disabled autorun because i don't like it. however, if i'm playing
music in wmp and i put in a cd that has video either dvd or wmv/mp4 files,
wmp suddenly stops playing the music and starts playing the video files on
that cd. if autorun is disabled, why is wmp automatically doing this?
I) There're two completely different things and they're worth disabling
both, despite very similar names:

My windows/system32/config/system file is huge -- the order of 200mb. This
seems a bit unusual, and I did get some popups on startup that there is not
enough room for the registry. I cleared out the paging file and reallocated
1.5*2gb (the size of my memory). Anyway, what can I do about this file to

Does anyone know if the Find/Replace command is available in Live Mail. I
cannot find it. If not, does anyone know of a suitable solution for that
"will be missed" command.
No, it's not. If you need to use Find/Replace, select all the text and 'cut' it.
Then paste into Notepad where you can do the Find/Replace. When done,
paste the result back into your email message.

In chapter 19 of Jeff's classic book "Programming Applications for
Microsoft Windows", there is a paragraph as follows:
"What Importing Really Means
The previous section introduced the _ _declspec(dllimport) modifier.
When you import a symbol, you do not have to use the _
_declspec(dllimport) keyword-you can simply use the standard C extern
keyword. However, the compiler can produce slightly more efficient
code if it knows ahead of time that the symbol you are referencing
will be imported from a DLL's .lib file. So I highly recommend that
you use the _ _declspec(dllimp...Rules window disappears in less than 1 second

I have been using Windows Mail (copied from Vista) in my Windows 7
computer for nearly 6 months without any problems.
Now, since Windows update KB978542 was installed a couple of days ago
it has stopped working.
It appears as a running program in Windows Task manager but the user
interface never appears.
I have done a System Restore to before KB978542 and Windows Mail
started working OK again, Repeated this three time so I have no doubt
that it is KB978542 that has buggered it up.
