    Post all bugs you have noticed while using Win7(RTM only)
    And if possible then solutions.

    So far i have noticed:

    *Some general problem with thumbnails.They simply dissapear after x amount of time.Ccleaner and Disk Cleanup does not have it checked to be cleaned.Also some program icons randomly dissapear.Be it from start menu or taskbar.Could be simply my problem but who knows...

    *Cant generate .mkv thumbnails with K-Lite Codec Pack installed(both x86 and x64 versions installed)

    *Not a bug per se, but after doing forced restart(failed OC,problem preventing normal shutdown etc).Win 7 i very eager to offer repair option and says Win7 failed to start(although everything is fine).Some users might believe this and run repair that could ruin the OS since there was no problem to start with.As they say - Dont fix something that does not need fixing.

    Not a bug in Windows 7. Things have changed since Vista and Haali's next version of his splitter will likely remove the thumbnail support. Of course it's possible to get it reimplemented in the future versions.

    I would not say that the mkv thumbs are a bug, at least not with Win 7 itself... they really are the codec's fault. I have no problems using Media Player Classic HomeCinema 64 bit, all using internal filters and the internal audio splitter with EVR Custom as output. Plays everything no prob and no need for codecs.

    Uh, the image viewer, at least for larger images when set to maximized will not refresh the buttons at the bottom properly, minor annoyance....

    *Hover over 'show desktop' on the taskbar, and while it is in preview click the 'show desktop' button.

    As you can see it doesn't cleanly show the desktop, but reshows your windows before quickly minimizing them ;/

    Aero peek seems to be picky on times and doesn't always bring whichever window you click on to the front. An example of this would be to load up windows media player and open the enhancements window, then bring the main WMP window to the front and try to switch back to the enhancements window using aero peek -- it will remain behind the main window unless you use the secondary mouse button, plus if you do this a second time aero peak will say it's the window on top when it clearly isnt.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    to fix that thumbnail, i've been doing that since vista..

    save the code below as .reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    n if u want to add spesific file type (extension), just copy paste all the line, and edit the extension as you want.

    i hope it helps everyone here..

    ill add my findings

    •The Device Properties quit button flickers when the mouse is left on it
    •Changing The Recycle Bin Icons Stops Desktop Refresh Only ICO Files
    If you add a comma and 0 (,0) in the registry after the icon file name they will switch back and forth without refresh, Go to here
    after you have changed the Recycle Bin icons to your custom ones then add ,0 to Default,Empty and Full
    •Desktop frozen coming out of sleep when taskbars on Auto-Hide

    Icons pinned to task bar lose their icon and default to standard Windows "File" icon.

    Icons in notifacation area sometimes have to be re-enabled, I think after a sleep.

    I could not get me media centre gadget to display, but after restarting gadgets from "Windows features add/remove" it came on.

    Blank screen when starting a new game of COD w@w, it happens when you first join server.

    Freezing in windows and gaming with Sony Ericsson PC suite running.

    Although I have to say build 7600 seems to be far more stable than my mature Vista Ultmate x64 install.

    Setting an alternate color for NTFS encrypted or compressed files seems to not work correctly. The explorer sidebar as well as file open/save dialogs show the correct color, but the files show up as the default green and blue in regular explorer windows even after rebooting.
