Or stop using Internet Explorer and run Firefox and Ad Block or even better just setup Sandboxie to contain your browser.

Like the ISO and 7z/archiving suggestions. Also liked the 'advanced' options to deselect features you don't want, instead of relying too much on utilities.

1. PDF reader, writer, and printer (I think a reader is coming, but I want moar)
2. Full, differential, and Incremental backups with scheduling
3. More extensive codec support out of the box

Agreed...while UAC is not bullet-proof, it was a step in the right direction when it was first introduced.

Good call on Sanboxie. I absoultly love this program. I've been running it on my system for quite a while and I'm very happy with it. I set it up on my grandma's PC (WinXP) about a year ago since she has a habbit of clicking on pretty much anything that blinks. No suprise she ends up with all kinds of crap on her computer. Since I setup Sandboxie, she's had ZERO issues with any sort of malware.

This is exactly the kind of thing that is killing small software companies in general...

I would like to see some good features like 3d, and also i want inbound antivirus for the lifetime, which will assure the security of the system. Also it should carry a complete guide for the users to solve the technical problems.

Would like some better native multi-monitor support. i.e windows toolbar that extends across monitors and have windows corresponding to the monitor clickable on it.
