I can only give you objective facts. If both 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 does not perform properly and you were happy with XP, you should do what makes you happy.

But before you change there are a few things you can try

Turn off Aero, that takes resources. Then get back and tell me the result.

I disabled it and ran the WEI rating (best way I know of checking).

The computer shut off when the the temperature of the GPU reached 115 C (YIKES).

I may just go back to XP. But XP is so disappointing compared to the abilities of 7

Here are some things that you can do. Only make changes when you have expertise in that area. Making an incorrect change can cause problems. Always make a system restore point before making a change.
