Can you name the applications you used (couldn't use) on Windows 7 that had compatibility issues with the operating system? (One application per answer please.)

"Starcraft tends to hang the system for no apparent reason at times. Was that way in the Beta and continued to be so in the RC. DOn't know about RTM. The funny thing is, everything else still seemed to work (I could still talk on Skype, although admittedly Skype is as evil as you can get) but no input whatsoever seemed to work anymore.

I didn't try killing the game from remote, though.

So currently I'm using a VM with an ancient Windows to play in :)"

Miro (http://www.getmiro.com/) doesn't work correctly. Video playback is blocky and pixelated. Other player (WMP, Media player classic) work well. Tried to update the graphic driver but it still doesn't work

"Visual Studio 2003 is an epic FAIL...

My machine doesn't support virtual XP mode, but I'd love to hear in the comments if anyone has any positive experiences running VS2003 in XP mode."
