Hi, my father-in-law's old laptop has finally died so we are going to take the plunge and get him a new one. obviously this is going to have Windows 7 on it. Can anyone tell me if any of the following progs have any compatibility issues with Windows 7

Zone Alarm

Crap Cleaner



Reg Seeker


MS Word 2000

Sods law says what works on one PC has problems on another, If you do find there are any issues the progs you have listed are FREE and there are more than suitable alternatives that might work better together.
let us know how you get on...

ok, thanks for all of that. As you say MAT ALAN there are always alternatives available. I'll see how it goes. Let you all know in a couple of weeks hopefully.

It will be fine'ish. W7 is OK and XP is 10 years old.

"You do the Math" as our cousins say.

Get a USB external drive, if you have budget, and shift all your data there beforehand.

I got Office 2000 working, then not working, no idea why.

Double click on a Word Document gives error.
Many peeps moan about it, no clear answer.

Use File Open and navigate instead.

My modem wouldnt work under W7, AOL sent me a free wless/modem/router but I had to sign up for another 18 months.

Since I have been with them for 10 yrs and I get a great sevice (apart from India, Ireland Cust Svc is excellent), 18 months is fine (LLU exchange 4Mbps)
My Lexmark X-74 All In One would not work under
any circumstances. XP latest drivers.

Hunted and hunted. Gave up and bought a new Canon MP250 all in one scanner/printer. £35 from Argos.

No problems, but wish now I had bought the wireless version. Shop around if you need.
