Windows 7 is nice and a clean install should solve a lot of problems. In regards to AV, I would suggest Microsoft Security Essentials as well. I would recommend you not use Sophos because it's crappy and will not detect a lot of malware.

Suggest you use MSE. It is also free and better suited for Win. Plus it is better all together.
whs is correct. Many, in fact most third party antivirus programs cause BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. MSE does not.

The only thing I know about Sophos, is that a lot of people get it for free. People that go to certain school, or work for certain companies get it. The only person I know that actually installed it, said she didn't like it. It might be making your computer slow. Worst case scenario, you waste an hour uninstalling it and reinstalling.

Yea..Windows 7 isnt bad. In fact...alot of Hardcore XP users were actually switching over to 7. Thats the 1st time in yearsssssss. XP has been on top since it came out. Not saying its NOT on top now...but Windows 7 is the closest thing to knockin off XP.

Actually, XP was one of the most criticized versions of Windows ever when it first came out. Even ME wasn't as hated. It even earned its own article one Wikipedia just for criticism, something that has only been achieved by XP and Vista (in terms of MS software).

Criticism of Windows XP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

People have just become used to XP. It had been Microsoft's main product for 6 years, twice as long as any other version of Windows. For a lot of the younger crowd, that is between a forth and half of their life.

For me...i never saw what the really big thing was for XP. Everyone always talked like it was the best Operation System. It was the lightest maybe. Using not much resoources. Thats the main reason it seemed that people liked it.

I hated the search in XP. When Vista 1st came out....the whole world seemed to "Dis" it. Because it used alot of your resources and took alot of RAM to run they claimed. But ME....i never had any problem at all with Vista. I actually kinda like it. The search was one of its coolest features. They would say Vista slowed down your PC. I had 1.5 GB of RAM on my 1st Vista laptop. Wasnt too bad at all. Then now..i have 3GB of RAM on this laptop im on now. With Vista Premium on it. Seems fine. So it seems more like...if you have a rig...that has lets say...8Gb of RAM and 750GB HDD...wouldnt Vista seem "small" on a rig like that? So when Vista 1st came out and they said it was a resource hog...i always thought...it depends on the persons PC specs. If they got 16GB of RAM...there Vista is gonna feel like XP. Plus better if u ask me.

Anyway I've just slapped myself on the wrist as we seem to have hijacked ihatewin7's thread.
