Windows 7: Doesn't seem to be as good as Vista

With all due respect, it doesn't sound like you're able to make such a comment just yet as your issue is with a poor installation.

True enough.. but why does it make such a difference ? If I only upgraded why would it have issues... They offer a upgrade which means it should go smoothly... why offer an upgrade if everyone should just format and clean install

Upgrades have always been a mess with Windows. I remember helping someone to upgrade from Vista Basic to Premium and it was a horror story. Since you have the option to do a clean install, I recommend you use it.

An upgrade is like a car, you can paint, wash and wax it, the problems still remain. If you had corruption, virus or anyother problems they carry to the upgrade.

Vista and 7 are similar under the hood, the upgrade just changes whats there, problems and all.

Hope this helps a bit - I bought the upgrade iso from the Microsoft store, pre-order was to good to pass on. Anyhow I did a successfull clean install with it, full version.

Ballistic; you probably feel screwed either way so I think you have two choices because the third is stick with what you got.
1. Go back to Vista, if you liked it and it suited your PC it's got quirks but works.
2. Clean Install of 7 to your formatted disk. If activation gives you any crapp MS will fix you up.
Good luck.

This thread is misleading. Please change the title. As for the speed problem,
i gave a response to another person earlier in another thread, dont know which
one.
Just start the al tab thing, check the processes that is using the most harddrive
stuff and stop the processes. Some of the security and old programs working on
vista dont work on seven , so you might have to find the upgraded versions.
Relax, win7 is far superior.

That statement would need some qualification.
