Hi Alex and Welcome

General consensus is that Windows 7 is pretty well optimised as shipped, It does not really need a lot of tweaking to run well, the services circus that was such a part of the XP experience is not needed, and things such as memory usage is better than ever, although it is different from what has gone before.

Saying this there is a wealth of customisation possibilities in the customisation section and a lot of tutorials in the collection here - as for optimisations a search of the subject here provides lots of food for thought

Install the pending Windows Updates and make sure your drivers are up to date. That's about all you need to do to optimize Windows 7.
