i don't mind hate the OS or not, but did you all ever think without the less of program or error, the program can't be improve.
like if we fall, of course we don't wanna fall into the same hole.
nobody perfect, and also the OS, have some missing or error. but let get the microsoft to improve and increase it. we just can suggest.
however if hate the win7, so don't use it. can use the other OS, depend on what you're need.

Here's my 2 cents worth; I kind of had similar issues with various apps then I was informed to ensure that I only use apps designed for 64 bit Win7... So I did and ever since my PC with Win 7 Pro works nice'n'fast with many apps open and running at the same time...Some I have to run in Administrator mode, but all is ok.
Just thought I'd share this with you 'cos you're also on x64. Hope it works out for you buddy 'cos I know just how frustrating these situations can be....

If you don't solve it by the end of today, I think you should do this to save any hassle.

Ask us if you want a detailed guide on how to do it.

Test your memory for 5-6 passes with memtest86 bootable CD, then the HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

Have you tried IE8 in Win7? They finally perfected it with better features IMO than any other browsers, and it is rock solid stable with no issues in 100+ installs here. Perhaps you could hold off on another browser in your reinstall until you give IE a good run. Look at all the ways you can sort your History to get back to places you want.

Wiping your HD is an important first step as it will overwrite any infected or conflicting code. Use tutorial linked: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

The installer is mostly driver-complete with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your computer or device model. I would not change any drivers given by installer/updates unless performance dictates, then start with display, chipset.

I install programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. I don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup except AV (lightweight free MS Security Essentials or Avast 5) and gadgets - any others freeload on CPU/RAM and can spy on you.

When it is finished, clean and order your HD perfectly with state-of-the-art CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly.

If performance probs persist, google text and ID# of repeat errors in Event Viewer>Admin View to learn how others solved them. Click through WEI score at Computer>Properties to resolve any cued issues on Advanced Tools page, work through errors in the Performance log found there, and Generate A System Health Report. Monitor processes working at idle closely.

Very interesting stuff guys, thanks for your advice. Ok. Well I agree with the people who have recommended a clean install and I am heading that way tonight. I think the MSE advice I will also take. Sophos maybe the cause as may firefox. Who knows.

can i just say that i have been using firefox withe windows 7 since last october and have had only one issue that was rectified ,it certainly did not wreck my os and i use around a dozen plugins and addons with firefox .in the last couple of months i upgraded my pc to x64 and have not had one issue with firefox ,
im sure there are loads of members here use firefox with win 7 and no issues!
id suggest re installing firefox when you have a clean install and a system restore point to go back to if issue and see how it performs then.

I agree with your assessment of Firefox.

I used Firefox with Win 7 for a few weeks. Never saw a performance problem, but one of my add-ons wasn't compatible with 7, so I ditched Firefox. It's still on my machine, and my wife uses it as her default browser.

For the life of me, I can't even remember what add-on it was that wasn't compatible.
