Hello, I have a windows 7 home premium that is coming and I will be installing it on my windows vista home premium 64bit laptop. I had a question about a couple of programs in specific such as encrypt files its a program found at its a really good program i like it but i do not know if it would be compatible with win 7 also the program 7zip that i found here in i wanted to see if i can run that in win7. I am wondering if anyone has run these particular programs. Maybe if possible i could also get a response for cryptobyte another encryption program that i particularly like alot. Also Evernote if this is not too much to ask thank you.

That Encryption software. Does the software developer say it is compatible with Windows 7?

Beware. if you use that to encrypt any files or folders on your Vista system then you update to Windows 7, you may not be able to de-crypt them. Make sure you understand the process and know how to recover those files if you lose the program or lose any certificates it creates in the encryption process.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
