They are always not replaceable anyway.

I've always run with anti-virus of some sort (currently MSSE) and have never seen this issue on any computer or any Windows version.
I've had the temporary profile thing only with a domain environment with roaming profiles. I didn't even know it could also happen with local profiles.
Then it should be that cursed BD2

first: it's not new to win 7 - it can happen with xp or vista also... possibly with other versions like 2000 pro.
second: i posted here when this hit me a while back and had a reply from Larry Osterman who was not able to help much at that time but give me his best info on this issue.
third: log-off Yes about say 90-99% of the time a simple re-start will get past it. but sometimes you are truly hosed. no idea why.
fourth: I think tonight i will create anew thread and ask Charles abiut getting someone on the WIndows Team to at least examine it.
Yeah, I remember it on XP. I think it is probably anti-virus because the XP had enterprise anti-virus on it and my Win7 has MSE on it. When my Vista didn't have anti-virus, I have never run into this. But, it is also possible with my BD2 server since I only started to get this kind of issue. I think it is 3 times in 3 months now. I have never experienced this before BD2 installation. Maybe because BD2 makes an "admin" named account? LOL

I find it hard to believe they will kill the zune software afther 6 months, since people know they are building an HD2 version AND microsoft has know for a very long time what to do with WP7S and Zune.
The iPod Touch is just an Iphone without the phone stuff. The zune should be just the same. Zune HD has a massive powerfull Tegra chip in it and beautyful screen, ideal for games. They won't let the zune hardware die !
I am not so sure about Hardware. I have really low confidence on them. For all these years, MS has been saying, "Deliever Zune Service worldwide as software+service oriented business and Zune Experience on Windows Mobile". The later promise is interestingly overly accurate. I mean, no one actually realized they mean, turn WinMo into a Zune Experience literatly. So, I have a feeling their plan on Zune is mainly a software+service business where WinPh7 will be the hardware that everyone can make. I know they will sell some hardware for the people who doesn't have WinPh, but, I don't know how much they will be into hardware sector.

My guess is it was probably much cheaper to get it ported, remember 360 has a PowerPC CPU. Also, the available memory on the 360 is pretty constrained and it lacks most of the services that a full OS like Windows provides, like virtual memory and software threading, which the full .NET Framework probably depends on.
I see, thanks for the info.

"I wonder what Google thinks about this one: I thought that the point of giving Android for free was to make sure people used their search engine."
And I'm sure the phone companies that implemented Android didn't think that Google would put out a phone of their own =)
Haha yeah, that's what I thought. 1st Motorola make Android their highest priority and then Google is making their own. And now Motorola is offering Bing. Well, it is just more choices, I don't even know if Bing is the default or not, but, it is quite funny to see them do that so quickly. And Google's agreement certainly did not restrict search engines.
On the other hand, WinPh7's new consistent experience is going to be interesting. Because I am sure you can use Google search on WinMo6.5, but, WinPh7 surely does not allow such thing. As they put it, you can't change GUI or core components to make experience consistant. And I think this also means you can't change search provider to alter that experience as well. You can only "add" and obviously not remove the hubs. It is going to attracts law suits. So I wonder how they setup their contracts to prevents law suits.

The full .NET framework on desktop Windows? No, it has very good performance. I'm talking about the .NET Compact Framework that lacks the same sort of investment, not to mention it optimizes for memory size over speed. It lacks a whole bunch of things, but the most painful thing for games is probably the garbage collector, whose collection time increases linearly the more handles/references you have (on the compact framework) and is not generational. It's just a dumb, enumerate every reference when collection is triggered thing.
Cool, that's good to know. But, why is X360 using .Net Compact? I thought they would use the more complext version.

The big O of Ackermann's function is still upper bounded.
If you really want to cover your bases, all you got to say is O(∞)
That would even include undecidable algorithms.
Oops that won't work for AI field because you want a NP-Complete problem and your algorithem has to be solved in polynomial time.

Or from the opposite viewpoint - only engineers are obsessed with multiplication constant. It's just common knowledge you shouldn't ever ever use O(n^2) algo instead of O(n logn) algo unless you're building Windows Live Mail. I guess nobody on that team bothered to look at what happens when you've saved couple thousand of RSS feeds.
I am sure couple thousand RSS with O(n^2) is still fast It obviosuly has something wrong else where. Like how they save and retrive RSS and so on. I wouldn't be surprised when they use MS-SQL Compact, taha.
And yeah, I am software engineer (don't say engineer because the hardware side is another world hehe)
@algorith, yeah, intro only do a basic analysis when things doesn't change. A lot of times we prune the search tree, so, the result is not consistant. And then, you have to prove your BigO is as low/close to the upper bound of your new tree, as well as the average case, which arrrrggg, well, I dropped that class.
