Windows 7: Had to make a new clean account, loving it!

06 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Had to make a new clean account, loving it!

Ok, so this past few months my Windows Account has had problems playing event sounds and other things like being sluggish and slow. It really changed my view on Windows 7. I have to say, I thought it was yucky, and went to Linux temporarily. But earlier I decided to just create a new account and start fresh (well moving my important data of course). I deleted much of my downloads and files that I didn't need and I have to say I am truly impressed. I had 40 GBs of space in the beginning and at the end, have about 80 GBs of space (and about to get more as soon as I delete Ubuntu). I can't believe how much of a pack rat I am with files. I moved to a new account and it starts so fast! Things run more smoothly, I can use IE9 (which I was about to give a not so good review on, but not anymore!) without it going slow! When I visit Hotmail, the interface is not slow (but I am still going to use Windows Live Mail as my email client)! I feel just so fresh and clean, I haven't even changed the wallpaper because it feels clean with the simple Windows Flag. I can enjoy my Windows 7 OS!! About to delete the old account, and it feels good. This account also doesn't have most of the Toshiba stuff pre-junked onto it so it is more fresh than my "Out of Box Experience"!

I advise any one who has a slow account and has not made a new one in a while to do so right now while you have the time, you will love your self so much!! Infact I think I will try to get my mom on her Vista computer to do so too!

I just had to share my experience...

Up next... To clean this laptop screen!

Loving NIS 2011, is the toolbar needed?
Hey all, Just wanted to say first off that Norton Internet Security 2011 is very fast, and works fine for me. I'd highly recommend it to others especially if you buy it off for $31 (it's a steal imo). I just have one quick question: should I enable or disable the toolbar that...
