Windows 7: I hate windows 7

I hate windows 7

Hmmm so I am pretty mad right now. 1) The forums telling me that win 7 was a ok b) poeple in the industry was telling me that it was safe go for it c) not following my gut instinct and getting windows 7.
It is the biggest hunk of garbage I have ever dealt with, my work flow is completely in shambles because win 7 cannot physically keep up with my demnads. I could run so many programs concurrently with XP and now I am lucky to run notepad and moziilla firefox at the same time with out serious delays to happen.
I cannot express how much I hate this. I cannot believe I am saying this but I am holding my flag up as i walk towards mac. I hate macs but atleast they work. I have a fully functional super computer to run win 7 (rated 5.9 for the hard drive but 6.5 is my lowest common denominator after that) and I seriously can't do anything except surf the net and watch movies. suck it up i guess and move on. SERIOUSLY A BIG FU To Microsoft though.

Hi ihatewin7,

There's no doubt that either there's a software or hardware based problem that needs sorting out. You should be able to run multiple programs easily with no interference. Tell us about your Windows 7 installation and how long you've had it. Tell us what programs are started on startup and why you think this slowness is being caused.

Thanks,
Harvey Meale

Thanks folks,
really nothing unusual. I have photoshop installed, vlc, mozilla, open source office and itunes. Nothing out of the ordinary. My XP computer has pro tools, adobe suite, vegas, (computer games SPORE. SIMS 3 countless open source games) and runs swimmingly well (for years). WIN 7 i will be on the internet installing adobe flash for mozilla and everything freezes. It's a nightmare. I almost smashed my keyboard when the disk from hell came up the last time. At that point i had notepad, mozilla and itunes running. I just cannot understand that a newer version can do way less things than it's predecessor. Really really upset.

Is your computer freezing, or is it giving you a BSOD??

What antivirus/security software are you running?
Fully updated drivers?

Download process explorer and see if anything is working in the background:

Is this the only time it freezes? or are there other issues too? I notice that all of your problems so far have mentioned mozilla (I assume Firefox?) is it always Firefox that causes the issue?

Freezing, for ages and ages. Often i get so frustrated i force the restart. Mozilla seems really awful in windows 7 and i cannot get flash to work properly. I had to go to IE to hear some songs in myspace. And so got to see Bing for the first time and for the record that sucks too.
Haven't seen the bsod yet in win7. Shouldn't be long now.
If any of you guys out there are experiencing good results what type and amount of programs are you using? What should i expect if all things are going well (eg similar to my experience with XP?) Is Mozilla causing conflicts?

Hi ihatewin7,

You know what? I think the best thing for you would be to run a complete reinstall of the operating system. Ensure you're using a legitimate copy of Windows 7. There's a possibility that hardware's the problem, but if this is the same computer as the one XP was running on, then I don't see why that would be considered likely.

My recommendation would be to reformat or do a fresh install. If that doesn't work, perhaps your PC is suffering from malfunctioning hardware. Best of luck.

Thanks,
Harvey Meale

Again Im assuming you mean Firefox when you say Mozilla... Mozilla produce alot of products, but as your talking about flash im gonna assume you mean Firefox

Firefox runs fine in Windows 7, I have no issues with it at all, apart from the hoops you have to jump through to install flash "download the download manager, restart firefox, download flash, install flash, restart firefox, now pray it worked (which tbf 9 times out of 10 it does)"

Im going to go with Harvey here and say that maybe you should just take the plunge and reinstall. Might be worth checking for firefox upgrades, or try uninstalling and reinstalling firefox to see if it works though....
