I was hoping this section would have taken off with such a good Operating System. Seems like everyone is content..lol. Is there anything left for us nerds to play with in Windows 7?

There just aren't too many tweaks I would want. Windows 7 is great as is.

Detailed System Information

msinfo32.exe is really cool tool that comes with windows 7 and I just keep using on and on, I hope it comes useful to you too. You will love this tool! Use it for testing your memory and other peripherals that are causing a problem in windows 7 or just to make sure everything is running smoothly!  To start it go to , Run > type msinfo32 > hit enter.

 

Good luck!
