I am getting very frustrated with this Win 7 HP 64 bit. Running it on a notebook that blazed on XP Pro. Do you think they will get it right soon?

I am seeing all of the problems that I am having posted by others. Is it a problem with the basic Win7 OS script or are there folks attacking the program just to make it appear that there are problems. Is it a compatibility issue with duo core processors?

I'm running Win7 32 bit on two other machines with not nearly the problems.

It's not an HP. It's a MSI notebook.

Without more information about your problems, it's hard to help :blink:

It's hard to pin point a problem that has constantly changing symptoms. What my point was (and remains) is that there seem to be a lot of complaints just like mine. Not related to any one type or make and model of PC but with the Win 7 OS.

This notebook is:

MSI LX-775
Intel CORE 2 DUO T7100 1.8G/2M/800
S-ATA 100 G 7200 HDD
4 G RAM
NVIDIA Ge FORCE 8600 M GT Graphics
Realtek HD audio

But my point here is the overall performance of Win 7 64 bit OS.

:P In all seriousness, I'm running 64 bit 7 Home Premium and had similar problems---"unexplained" instability & such. A restore to factory and reinstallation of my 3rd party progs have worked wonders...this is now the most stable ver of Windows I've run.

Well now I don't feel like the "Lone Ranger" anyway! I did that window trick many years ago when leaving a job. Really, right out the second floor window.

The problems that I mentioned in the first paragraph of this post refered to other complaints of slow browsers (firefox and IE8), Slow boot times, changes to settings (screen resolution etc. I am having these same issues and wasn't actually asking for help as much as direction. If anyone else had seen the same things. I did a search in this forum for "Instability issues" and "slow browsers" but didn't se any magic words. I'm sure it's just more M$ crap! I mean the complains are all over the site. Everything is not a virus or malware attack.

I just think the Win7 OS needs some serious work!

I'll be quiet for a while. Getting too wound up!

I bought it from IbuyPower.com. It is called a Battalion 101 there. Came with no manual. I dod research and found a manual for a MSI 775 (17" notebook) and the pictures of the MoBo and exterior were exact. I recently sent it back to IbuyPower to have the case repaired after one of the hinges cracked. It is a MSI machine. Just Google "MSI" it's the first on the list.
