Heres a further update on Windows 7. I am having some problems, but I still plan on sticking with it. Most of my problems appear to be related to the drivers for my NVidia graphics cards. I am getting intermittent freezing and crashes of the NVidia drivers, which means I regularly ( and it appears to be happening more often each day) get total freezing of the computer for a few seconds, then it all frees up again. Maybe 10% of those events are more extreme, my screens both go black for a few seconds, then everything comes back and Windows pops up a message saying the graphics drivers crashed, and have now recovered. I am about to revert the graphics cards to an earlier driver, I'll keep you posted on what happens.The other problem I am having is with Windows Media Player 12. Occasionally, as I listen to streaming radio, I'll get a wierd humming noise totally replacing the sound, just for a few seconds. Sometimes when watching a video, the same thing will happen, but the sound will mess up and the video carry on just fine. I like Media Player 12, but I am going to try going back to 11 to see if this solves the issue. I am suspicious that the NVidia drivers have something to do with it, even though the video carries on. If the problem still occurs with Media Player 11, I'll come back to 12 again.I have some kind of issue which occasionally slows the computer to a crawl, as opposed to its normal sprint speed (this is a very fast computer most of the time). There are no clues in processes, memory use, cpu use, event logs or anything so I am scratching my head a little over that one. I'll let you know when I work it out.The graphics driver problem is getting worse, and is starting to be a major problem. Hopefully reverting to an older driver will fix it. Apart from that, I am still very happy with Windows 7, and still willing to recommend it to all.Further info as it comes to hand will be posted. I'd be very interested to see if anyone else has made the transition to Windows 7, and what problems if any they are experiencing.
