Sorry, I thought the Left screen was just another downloaded 'system monitor' for Win 7,
not paying any attention to any numbers in either picture.

Since both systems are 'at idle', the only valid point of reference for the w7 numbers
would be the extreme right-hand side of the graphs, with no numeric readout.
The numeric readouts are only in the Left pic.

However, for idle activity in the Left pic, the sum total of the 3 cores indicate 16.0%.
The average of 16% for 3 cores is 5.3%

The Right-hand pic of w7 indicates 'CPU usage' at 3%.
Not being familiar with this utility, I would assume it means the average, amongst the 3 cores...
Worst interpretation would be 3 x 3% each = 9% total.

1. The Forum is "Windows 7". The 'thread' is "What don't you like..."
I believe my postings regard 'discussing' the Microsoft product.

2. If I wanted the pics, I'd DL them from the post, and not overload the PM system.

3. Since the Left pic has already been defined, then there's no reason to "advertise differences" any more than you already have "advertised the differences".

Did you use this thread to explain "What you don't like about Windows 7" or to "advertise differences"?

Just want to ask WHY.....

I am having problems working out how to navigate WIN7.

I have been a MS user from DOS 3.1 and have mastered all including Vista Ult 64bit went there 8 months ago.

Each upgrade new OS version has affordered the user to go back and use the Classicinterface, YET MS this time have closed the door.

I personally like and use the classic interface.

This NEW MAC style leaver me LOST.

is ther a mind map or map that shows how to navigate and find lost misplaced icons and interfaces.

I have just spent 7 hours and am NO further ahead except to say If I dont get answers from MS (HELP) I and 100 clients (they drive my business) and have requested I find out how to reclain some resemblance to the classic interface or an alternative O/S and applications we will all be gone, NO longer MS pawns.

hi carl and welcome to seven forums,

what exactly can't you find? there is a search box on your start menu, and another in the control panel.

what's the point of microsoft developing a new operating system if it's going to be exactly the same as previous offerings?

if you prefer xp or vista, my suggestion is to use them.

Sorry to hear of your problems, and I appreciate the leaning curve problems that businesses face - you just need to get on with your work

The start menu search is a good help to finding those applications and functions which appear to have disappeared - either enter the program name or function and the system will present a list of relevant options

If you have problems with specifics it would be better to start a thread where your concerns may be addressed in more detail.

Your pain is shared. There are a number of posts here about the "classic menu" and how to get it, or something that looks like it, back.

Check out these links:

I know that any new OS presents a learning curve, and the experts here have tried to make it easier by posting a series of tutorials. Once you take a look at the links above, go over to https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/ and check some of them.

Windows 7 is a real step up from past Microsoft operating systems, and once you play with it a bit I feel sure you'll enjoy it.

I don't like how deep you have to go to change the login screen background. Although, considering it is the first to let you do it at all, I must appreciate it. I also don't like the lack of the shutdown button on the screen lock page.

There are applications that automate the task of changing the log-on screen - although the manual method is always best as you understand what can go wrong if you do have issues, thus making troubleshooting easier
