Windows 7 Service Guide is up

Have now put up a Windows 7 Service Guide, with a lot of help from the website. It is pretty much the existing Vista Service Guide with some extra services (19 services in total).

Also added two small Win7 tips: Btw. if using AVG 8.5 and is tired of the nagging popup-offer about upgrading from the free version to the full version, then it can be removed with the following steps:
  1. Go the install folder of AVG and browse to the Notification folder:

    C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\Notification

  2. Create a new sub-folder called upgrade-oportunity-avg85:

    C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\Notification\upgrade-oportunity-avg85

  3. Move all files newer than the 1 July 2009 from the Notification folder to the upgrade-oportunity-avg85 folder. This should include files like:
    • style.css
    • upgrade-oportunity-avg85-message1.html
    • upgrade-oportunity-avg85-message2.html
    • upgrade-oportunity-avgavf85.gif
    • upgrade-oportunity-avgis85.gif
I guess the market for low price antivirus packages will disappear, when Microsoft release their own free product Security Essentials (Currently in beta stage).
