I am sure there have been posts about this, but I am in the middle of making supper and have 2 kids running a muck so I need to make this quick. In January I bought the retail version of windows 7 home premium. I formatted my computer as I have windows xp home installed. When windows XP was in my computer I had no issues whatsoever. This computer originally had windows vista, but I did not like it, so I removed it and put xp in it 2 yrs ago.
Here are my current stats

When I installed windows 7 in January it froze up constantly, sometimes right on start-up, other times within an hour but never more. I could have been surfing the net, I could have been just leaving the computer sit, not doing anything on it. It drove me insane so I removed windows 7 and have not re-installed it. My mom and sister both have less ram then me and older computer then me and have also purchased windows 7 and have installed it and have no issues at all... so what gives, can some help me please. I have both 32 bit and 64 bit available to re-install but refuse until there is fix for this.
