After a defrag, the disk space is no more fragmented but the files can still be all over the place.

No. TuneUp drive defrag senses stuff like files that are required by programs and puts them together on the hard drive.

No Complaints from me so far.. The only thing so far is finding it difficult to procure a driver for an osbscure USB LAN device i have plugged into mah laptop.. other than that, compatibility with my devices has been nothing short of astonishing considering i'm using 64 bit win 7....

One thing I don't like is the Internet games. Why do I have to log on to an internet game I can't really even chat with when It would be just fine as a stand alone single person game. I can't even say okay friend, I want to play backgammon with you with these games? What is being sent while I play this game to Microsoft? I end up playing the computer most of the time anyways because there seems to be relatively few people who like this game.

Not much of a complaint I know.

I agree with you on the internet games.

The no. 1 thing that I hate in Windows 7 and other Windows OS is that it gets slower over time. Even if you did the right maintenance, things still get slow because of registry errors, faulty files, folders and settings that are left over by removed applications that maybe risky to remove using registry cleaners. So I agree with some of the others.

I also hate the way that Microsoft did not make downloadable custom themes that can match the coolness and design of third party themes. The downloadable themes they offer are so plain and simple compared to third party themes. Third party themes in turn need this and that to be installed.

Microsoft should also consider making some downloadable apps that can do a variety of things so that these programs in turn would be more compatible to their operating systems which their company and themselves designed.

And while installing apps made by Microsoft (such as MS Office,Windows Movie Maker) , why is it not possible to install the app to another directory, other than the C:/Program Files folder????

The only problem I have with Windows 7 is that out of 8 computers on my network that I have it on, it doesn't crash often enough. Therefore I can not post more questions for Help here on SevenForums.

So I guess I will just have to Help members instead.

None of those cause the computer to slow down. Running applications cause the computer to slow down. Unused entries in the Registry do not cause any delay. Junk files on the HDD do not cause the computer to slow down unless it is so full that free space is scarce.

Why this myth is still alive baffles me.
