I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate on a machine that was formerly running Windows XP. I am now seeing a host of problems which render it unusable.
Firstly, deleting a folder is taking forever. I usually use Shift + Delete since I don't want to move thing to the Recycle bin. Almost every single time, part way through I get a report that files are in use. This is immediately after a reboot, so no other apps are running.
While files are being deleted, I am prevented from doing anything else - nothing responds. Windows, including the Startup menu appear invisible, or with just the outer frame showing, or completely black. Icons are missing from objects on the desktop.
I just tried to access Computer->Properties and got a message "The page failed to load".
I am running Intel Xeon CPU 3.00GHz, 2GB RAM, 32bit OS
Are others seeing such problems?
