Windows 7: Windows 7 Optimization??

Windows 7 Optimization??

My son, is an Apple guy! All his devices are Apple. Even though they are more expensive, Apple does have it going on, especially with their OS on the computer/laptop/tablet portion of their industry.

I've also had many techs tell me that Windows 7 is Microsoft's best product yet, and as close to Apple's product thus far. (I have no experience with W8 but do understand it was designed more to work with the touch system)

I said all of that to ask this, how does Windows 7 do internally with optimization? I know the consensus on defrag is pretty much that the internal program is all you need, allowing it to run once a week/month etc.

What about the rest of the optimization in W7?

Thanks for patience and understanding!

Rest of optimization? Nothing. I do absolutely nothing but leave Windows 7 to its own devices and never have I had a performance issue. Well until I made one by messing with things.

I have had Windows 7 since July 5th (I started with the Release Candidate), and I've never had to worry about anything like this. It truly is Microsoft's best operating system.

I "personalize" my 7 but as far as "optimize" goes........... 7 is just fine as it is out of the box. Been using it since the R.C. issue also and the only BSOD I've ever had (one) was my fault.

Yeah, it's been so perfect and consistent for me (no gradual slow-down) that it's almost boring.

Any real optimizations are at the device level (disk, graphics card, etc.). Windows 7 is pretty much optimized out of the box besides tweaks for convenience.

Win7 is always fast and never hangs with a perfect install on adequate hardware.

To assure the install look over the same steps as in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

To assure the hardware run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

To check over the basics use Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.
