Upgrade to 7 has caused issues...

I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 and I'm so tempted to go back to Vista...if anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated!
I have the Dell Studio 1737. Since I've upgraded to Windows 7...my CD/DVD driver barely works, the finger reader doesn't work, webcam doesn't work...and now I can't view video files...the web goes to 'not responding'. I have updated my Flash, that did nothing.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!

Before you upgraded did you use the MS upgrade advisor, to see if you were compatible.

Did you upgrade or clean install?

Did you do an 'over the top' install or a 'clean/custom' installation?
