Help for Windows 7

Microsoft wants to make Windows 7 as smooth as possible. It's trying to fix some upgrade glitches, has XP Mode for older apps, and now has a bevy of new support options.

You can get questions answered via e-mail, Twitter, the Web and -- for the truly well-heeled -- the good, old-fashioned telephone. There's also a set of online repair and diagnostic tools called Fix It, which can pop up when a problem is detected.
