Windows 7: Post-Installation help..

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit
Post-Installation help..

Hy guys.. I registered on this forum mainly to ask this question but that would be very mean of me.. so I hope I can stick around and help out with my crappy little knowledge about computers

My laptop was running Windows Vista Home Premium earlier until one of my IT friends upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 Ultimate (works for Microsoft.. so I got it for free ) and hence, successful installation

Im exceptionally happy with it so far.. its so much more faster aye! But there is one problem.. which is that every time I single click on a file in the explorer.. there is a preview right?.. before it previews it comes up with this error which is REALLY annoying. Even my Windows Internet Explorer doesnt work properly until the errors finish doing their job.

Please help me fix this... my system specs are on my profile or if its inexcessible here you go..

System Manufacturer/Model Number Toshiba/Satellite A200
OS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit
CPU Intel
Motherboard Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73GHz (2 CPUs), ~1 Memory 2038 RAM
Graphics Card(s) Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family
Sound Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Monitor(s) Displays Laptop Screen
any help will be highly appreciated!

An in-place Upgrade from Vista is frequently an inferior install due to corruption imported from the old OS, as you are apparently discovering here.

The way to troubleshoot a specific error message is to Google as much of it's exact text as possible as there are almost always others who have dealt with the same problem and will show you how to fix it.

But for the long run, you'd be better off backing up your files and gathering your program installers to do a Clean Install by booting the Win7 DVD, deleting all partitions, creating new one(s) and formatting.

You have been given some very good suggestions by a few of our very knowledgable members. After your problem is resolved you will be very welocme to share your expertise with other members; it was very kind of you to make the offer. Even as you share your knowledge with the other members you will benefit from leaning even more about this great OS; the best way to learn is to teach.

So let me welcome you to our great forum and look forward to seeing your posts in the future.
