The x -compatibility factor for Windows 7

Compatibility is an critical factor when an OS or particular software gets updated.It’s typical but it’s sad if your favorite application doesn’t run in an updated version.Similar is in the case of windows OS,however You can always turn on compatibility mode,for eg which tells a program it’s running under Windows XP rather than 7.
Another possible solution though – the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT). This  powerful utility provides many more options and tweaks than compatibility mode alone, so there’s a better chance of making old programs run on your new PC. What’s more, the ACT isn’t only for aging apps. You can also use it to tweak the latest programs to remove Windows irritations.Are you tired of seeing a UAC prompt every time you load a trusted application, for instance? The Application Compatibility Toolkit can help you turn off the prompts for just a few programs, while keeping them for everything else. Again, it’s all very easy to use.
ACT can be downloaded free(12 Mb) from Microsoft official site.
