Is the following caused by Windows 7 or what?...

I used FF6 now FF7 + IE9 on Windows 7

I originally opened this in the Windows 7 Forum, but they tend to move a little slower there.

A friend is building a website, he posted me the link to check what he'd done so far and do a critiqué. At that time I was viewing it with FF6 on Win 7.

This is how the pictures looked..CLICK HERE.

I told him they weren't centred and he didn't understand. He had viewed it using all of the following, in every configuration...FF6 - FF7 - IE8 - Chrome - Safari - WinXP and Vista. In all cases the pictures looked as he had intended, symmetrical.

So I updated to FF7 and tried again, the result was the same as it had been before...Pictures to the left. So I tried with IE9...

This how the pictures look...CLICK HERE...just as they were intended to look. I can only think it has something to do with Windows 7 but what, that's my question?

Sorry about that, in fact that's something else that is happening. Sometimes when I highlight something I click 'Copy' then 'Paste' and the thing that is pasted is not what I was supposed to be copying just then. Instead it's something I copied prior. Although I can 'Cut' and 'Paste', all this is begining to sound more like my original thought, a PC problem?

Still this should be the link...Click Here

Sorry about that, in fact that's another thing, I'm not always able to 'copy' and 'Paste'. But so far I am able to 'Cut' and 'Paste'. Which sounds more like my original theory, that it's a PC thing?

Anyway here's the link...Click Here If you still want it, now that it's looking increasingly like the PC.?

I didn't realise it had gone over the page, hence the, more or less duplicate posting.

I think it must be your system. The site looks as it should on FF7 for me.

I've just looked into my 'Event Viewer' and it isn't a pretty site. It's all 'Red Error' exclamation marks and 'Yellow Warning' exclamation marks. On reading a cross section of them, everyone I've read have been asking for 'Driver Updates for Windows 7'. The error and warning signs date back to 06/07/2011 wich was more or less when I got the PC.

I assumed driver updates for Window came with Windows Updates? Apparently Not!

How and where do I get them?

For a new pc you shouldn't have any warning marks. All of the drivers should have been correctly installed and only needed updating if there were snags. You will need to check each device and then go to the manufactuer's site and download the drivers. But this should not have happened and I would contact the supplier.

No, perhaps I didn't explain it right. They aren't for third party hardware, the drivers it's asking me to update are for Windows 7 it'self?! Ie Boot Drivers etc

Here's a brief taster...

Event Details:

Product: Windows Operating System

ID: 7026

Source: Service Control Manager

Version: 6.1

Symbolic Name: EVENTBOOTSYSTEMDRIVERSFAILED

Message: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: %1

Resolve: Update Drivers

Here's another one...

WMI supports a query language called the WMI Query Language (WQL). WQL is a subset of structured query language (SQL) that is used by most relational database management systems. An event filter query is a WQL query that is used when processing WMI events.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System

ID: 10

Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI

Version: 6.1

Symbolic Name: WBEMMCCANNOTACTIVATEFILTER

Message: Event filter with query "%2" could not be activated again in namespace "%1" because of error %3. Events may not be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

Resolve: Update permanent event subscriptions

To correct the query, examine the event registration by using the WMI Event Registration tool included with 'CIM Studio' and updating the permanent subscriptions for the listed provider and query. If the permanent subscription was created by a MOF file included with an installed product, you must contact the application vendor to correct the faulty registration.

The trouble here is that 'CIM Studio' doesn't mention support for any Windows above WinXP. But that's the least of my problems, even if it does support W7 I don't know how to use it.?

I'm going to give sfc /scannow a go, before doing anything else or maybe CHKDSK
