My System Specs

Default Loaded Up W7 HP On My SSD....

So, I'm now running W7 HP on my Intel 80GB G2 Drive....I did notice that the Rig Boots into Windows "really fast" now....very nice. A few "bugs" and annoyances of run into with W7:

1. No included Email Program....that really chaps my hide as I assumed that it would come with Windows Mail (as did Vista)..so..before I formatted and re-installed I saved my emails along with my contacts only to find no Program to "export" the data to...damn it!!!
Other than going out and purchasing Outlook to go along with my daughters Office Home and student...any recommendations for a "cheaper" standalone email program that is easy to set-up (with a wizard)???
I really cannot believe MS didn't include this!!

2. My 3 yr old Brother MFC 5440CN Printer does work..installed "bare-bones" driver via "add new printer" feature and "search" for Drivers, but no Control Center features for scanning etc.

Thanks guys.....
