Seven premium slow

Hi,
I just recently upgraded a friends computer to windows 7 home premium from windows vista home premium. The problem is, its going very slow, things keep freezing and its just horrible to use. Vista ran fine on it.

I have defragged, used ccleaner and disk cleanup to no avail.

The computers hardly slow, it has 4gb ram, decent hdd space and a dual core amd proccessor. If I have missed something here that might help you out, then please ask.

Hi -- You used the word "upgraded". Did you really upgrade from Vista or did you do a Clean Install. If you didn't do a clean install, that could be your problem.

I didnt do a clean install purely because its such a hassle to uninstall everything and then reinstall it afterwards. Do you really think this might be a problem?

That is the problem. Everything wrong with the old system is now on the new.


Would you want an old car, painted, fixed, detailed, etc

Or


A new 2011. Its the same thing.

bummer. I hate clean installs, its gonna take me hours to backup everything. I'm running tuneup utilities as one last measure before I start backing up everything. I was dreading that upgrading would have problems like this. If it was my own computer I would have done a clean install straight up, because I have all the backup tools and extra hdd's to do so.

Anyway,
thankyou all for your responses.

Shouldn't take much time at all. Use Windows Easy Transfer to back up files and settings to an external drive. Wipe, reload and use WET to restore the files and settings. All you need to do then is reinstall software. Your friend can probably do that for himself.

I never thought of using WET

Before you start over with a Clean Install, try doing a Clean Boot. If the system runs okay then you have something starting at boot time that is causing the problem and that should be fairly easy to fix. If not, you've only wasted a few minutes and can go ahead with the Clean Install.
