Where did you get Win7? How is it activated?

Work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will check it over thoroughly and optimize it.

Make sure the install you did is similar to the perfect install compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 based on what works best in thousands of installs we've helped with here.
