KB947821: Download System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7

Microsoft has released a tool for Windows 7 users which fixes an inconsistency found in Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software. This tool checks your computer for such inconsistencies and tries to resolve issues if found.
System resources, such as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data, can develop inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system. These inconsistencies might be caused by various hardware failures or might be caused by software issues. In some cases, these inconsistencies can affect the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates not to work. The System Update Readiness Tool tries to resolve these inconsistencies.
You can download and install this tool using following link:
Download Link (32-bit or x86)
Download Link (64-bit or x64)
After you download the System Update Readiness Tool, it runs a onetime scan for inconsistencies that might prevent future servicing operations. This scan typically takes less than 15 minutes to run. However, the tool might take significantly longer on some computers. The Windows Update progress bar is not updated during the scan, and progress seems to stop at 60% complete for some time. This behavior is expected. The scan is still running and you should not cancel the update.

How to Get Windows Vista’s DreamScene Feature in Windows 7?

Important Reminder Regarding Expiration of Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC)

On February 15th, people still running Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) will receive a notification reminding them that starting March 1st, 2010, their PC will begin experiencing bi-hourly shutdowns. These shutdowns will continue through June 1st, 2010. On June 1st, 2010, a non-genuine experience is triggered where your wallpaper is removed and "This copy of Windows is not genuine" will be displayed in the lower right corner above the taskbar. This means your PC will no longer be able to obtain optional updates or downloads that require genuine Windows validation.
To avoid any data loss, you are advised to move to a released version of Windows 7 before the automatic shutdowns start. During these shutdowns, your work will not be saved.

List of Windows 7 System Files to be Hacked Using Resource Hacker

Here is another interesting topic for Resource Hacker lovers. In this topic, we are going to mention a few system files in Windows 7 which can be modified to change look of various Windows components like login screen, dialog boxes, menus, etc. You'll need Resource Hacker to modify these files.
So here is a list of various system files in Windows 7 which can be easily hacked using Resource Hacker:
Approx. all Windows 7 system icons -> %windir%\System32\imageres.dll
Login Screen Background -> %windir%\System32\imageres.dll
Login Screen image resources -> %windir%\System32\authui.dll
Startup Sound -> %windir%\System32\imageres.dll
Start ORB images -> %windir%\Explorer.exe -> Bitmap -> 6801 - 6812
Windows Version Image in "About Windows" dialog box -> %windir%\Branding\Basebrd\basebrd.dll
Windows Version Image in bottom of Login Screen -> %windir%\Branding\Basebrd\basebrd.dll
Control Panel Left Sidebar Image -> %windir%\System32\Shell32.dll -> Bitmap -> 632 & 633
Getting Started (aka Welcome Center) Images -> %windir%\System32\oobefldr.dll
Laptop Battery Meter image resources -> %windir%\System32\batmeter.dll
Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) Resources -> %windir%\System32\ieframe.dll
Windows Media Player 12 (WMP12) Resources -> %windir%\System32\wmploc.dll
Above mentioned system files/locations are new to Windows 7 and were not present in earlier Windows versions, like XP. If you want to change look of other menus, dialog boxes like RUN, Progress, System Properties, Start menu, Taskbar Properties, etc, you'll have to edit some other system files which you needed to edit in Windows XP. But there is a little difference, now those files don't contain the resources but their .MUI files do.
For example in Windows XP, RUN dialog box resources were present in "%windir%\System32\Shell32.dll" file but in Windows 7, the resources are present in "%windir%\System32\en-US\Shell32.dll.mui" file.
All these .MUI files are present in any of following 2 locations:
%windir%\en-US\
%windir%\System32\en-US\
To know about other system files which are same for all Windows versions and contain resources of various dialog boxes, menus, etc, you'll need to visit following links:
List of Files to be hacked using Resource Hacker
List of Resource Locations to be Hacked Using Resource Hacker
All these file names and resource locations are same in XP, Vista and 7.

KB971033: New Update for “Windows Activation Technologies” to Detect Windows 7 Pirated Copies

Microsoft has released a new update "KB971033" for Windows 7 users. It updates the activation and validation components in Windows Activation Technologies for Windows 7. Windows Activation Technologies helps you confirm that the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer is genuine. Additionally, Windows Activation Technologies helps protect against the risks of counterfeit software. Windows Activation Technologies in Windows 7 consists of activation and validation components that contain anti-piracy features.
  • Activation is an anti-piracy technology that verifies the product key for the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer. The product key is a 25-character code that is located on the Certificate of Authenticity label or on the proof of license label. These labels are included with each genuine copy of Windows. A genuine product key can only be used on the number of computers that are specified in a software license.
  • Validation is an online process that enables you to verify that the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer is activated correctly and is genuine.
This update for Windows Activation Technologies helps detect validation errors and activation exploits. This update also detects any tampering attempts made to important Windows 7 system files. Be aware that some counterfeit copies of Windows include malware.
When this update is installed, it performs a validation process for the copy of Windows that is running on your computer. However, this validation process does not affect the functionality of Windows. The update process exits silently if it detects no validation errors, activation exploits, or tampered files.
If the update discovers a tampered file, it tries to restore the file. This restore may require a restart. If this update cannot restore the tampered files, it will direct you more information on the Internet.
If a validation error or activation exploit is detected, you will be directed to more information on the Internet for resolution of the activation exploit or the validation error. When validation errors or activation exploits are removed, you may be asked to use a valid product key to activate the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer. If you decide not to resolve the validation error or the activation exploit at that time, you will be periodically notified that the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer is not genuine. Additionally, Windows will provide a link to more information online for resolution.
This update package is available through Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center.

Add Cascading Menus for Your Favorite Programs in Windows 7 Desktop and My Computer Context Menus

NOTE: This tutorial has been featured by Microsoft. AskVG.com was the first website posting this unique trick.
We have posted several tutorials in past which help in adding your favorite programs shortcuts and other useful system shortcuts in Windows 7 Desktop context menu. Some of them are as follows:
Some AskVG readers complained that all these tutorials add the programs shortcuts in the main Desktop context menu which makes the whole menu large. They asked a method to add cascading menus in Desktop context menu.
I liked the idea and I tried to create cascading menus containing programs shortcuts which also helps in grouping the programs. For example, you can create different cascading menus like Applications, Browsers, Media Players, System Shortcuts and when you hover your mouse cursor over them, they open a list containing all your favorite programs. In this way, it'll not make the main context menu large as shown in following screenshots:

7Customizer: vLite Replacer for Windows 7 to Customize and Tweak Setup ISO

Recently we blogged about "RT Seven Lite" which allows you to customize Windows 7 setup. You can add wallpapers, Icons, themes in the setup. You can also integrate updates, drivers and remove components from the setup. Today we are sharing another similar tool "7Customizer" which is claimed to be a vLite replacer for Windows 7.
7Customizer is a tool for creating a customized Windows 7 installation (both 32-bit and 64-bit editions). It works on both English and non English installation sources.
Here is what the developer says about the tool:
7Customizer is still in development stages and it is still in testing phase. It is far from being a complete vlite replacement but the aim is to replace vlite. It will need time and effort and feedback to complete it. Also, it might not work for you or crash with error.

Important Notes from the Developer before using the Tool:
  • Make sure you have enough free space (at least 5 GB) in your drive where 7Customizer is located (7Customizer will warn you if the drive does not have sufficient space).
  • It is highly recommended to run the program in a folder that does not have white spaces in its name. For example, C:\7Customizer\
  • It is highly recommended to place your installation source in a directory that does not have white spaces in its name. For example, C:\win7\
  • When choosing the path for ImageX and DISM, make sure you choose the same exe architecture (x86 or amd64) as your Windows, e.g. when using Windows 7 x64, choose the ImageX located in amd64 inside the WAIK installation.
  • Always test the result in a virtual machine first.
  • It is highly recommended to use 7Customizer on an unmodified (clean, untouched) Windows installation source.
  • Fill the whole information in the unattended part or the setup will fail.
Known Issues:
  • 7Customizer fails to read the images information correctly.
  • 7Customizer might not label the ISO.
  • When selecting updates, sometime you will be able to select one update only. If you select more than one update 7Customizer will crash.

We’re announcing an update to Windows XP Mode today that will make it a more accessible to PCs in small and midsize businesses who want to migrate to Windows 7 Professional but have applications that still require Windows XP. Windows XP Mode will no longer require hardware virtualization technology to run. This change makes it extremely easy for businesses to use Windows XP Mode to address any application incompatibility roadblocks they might have in migrating to Windows 7. Windows XP Mode will of course continue to use hardware virtualization technology such as Intel VT (Intel Virtualization Technology) or AMD-V if available. You can find more information and download the update which will go live later today here.
