Well I did it ...the big step to Windows 7 ..not a walk in the park ...
One problem among others;
I try to download (find the download I should say) for Windows Media Player for Windows 7
I went to Microsoft download ...I look up at some answer of my own (Big mistake here )
So.. I come here as usual then ..there are lots of chances I find somebody to help me out.

Why do we put our self in so much troubles ..we will never know
One thing I know ..its I often talk about "HowToGeek" to many of my colleagues ..friends
people I meet here and there ...meaning to Everybody ...if there are soo many members ..I am sure
some are from my ..telling them so ...

Thank you again and again to help me out ...and again ..if I can help you in some other
areas ..I will be more than oblige... (like in law...translation english to french etc.

YourCanadianFriend Goldie :)

why do you have to download windows media layer? and what version are you trying to download, with Win7 it comes pre-installed, hmmm, that might be depending on version of 7, do you have home, premium or ultimate?
in ultimate is comes pre-installed.

ruthackermann :) Thank you so much ruth ...I will try that one and hope it worked

Mickeyblue :) You are right but...in that computer it tells me that ( I have or have not ) need an analogue driver...
whatever they mean ...
Some DVD work and some dont because of that Analogue thingie
