Before I start my rant I just want to express that I am and always have been a true supporter of the Windows OS and this thread is purely written out of my own frustration and disappointment in what was suppose to be the Savior or White Knight to the plagued Windows Vista. Now I accept that many Windows 7 users out there find it to be exactly that (The Savior) to the bogged down, bug ridden Vista. However I unfortunately have yet to find or even see from a distance the gold at the end of 7's gleaming rainbow. I've had my Windows 7 installed on my Laptop and Desktop since its release date and the following problems have plagued me in chronological order since then. Some of you may have experienced similar issues to those I'm about to list, please I ask you to express your stories and any advice with regards to these issues. 1st: Networking/Wireless - [RESOLVED] Driver Update Every time I brought my computer out of sleep mode my wireless network would be disconnected and refuse to connect again, my wireless adapter light was blinking as though it was turned on and when I pressed the button to deactivate and reactivate it the icon would respond onscreen but I could never turn it back on again unless I restarted. 2nd: Sleep/Hibernation Freeze - [UNRESOLVED] This problem seems to be plaguing A LOT of people but very few if any have found a solution. After the computer resumes from sleep mode or hibernation one of two things often happen. Everything freezes except the mouse within 5-10 seconds after resuming from sleep/hibernation and nothing responds for 4 or sometimes 8 minutes, duration of freeze seems to depend on how long it has been sleeping. OR the computer locks completely rendering it useless until it is force restarted by holding down the power button for 4 seconds, have also seen a blue screen of death appear once when this has happened. 3rd: Shutdown Freeze - [UNRESOLVED] After pressing the shut down button the "Windows is Shutting Down" splash screen Freezes and the computer doesn't switch off, forced power down is the only resolution, this problem happens maybe 1 in 10 shutdowns. 4th: Slow Response (At times similar to Vista) - [UNRESOLVED] As the heading states, 7 sometimes struggles to even change the tab of my web browser, I click another tab and I'm forced to wait a few seconds and then it has a mass catch up and multiple things happen in a split second. admittedly this is not a consistent issue, a good majority of the time performance is fine however this is still rather disappointing. 5th: Unidentified Network (Desktop PC Only) - [UNRESOLVED] For roughly 2 months my Desktops wired broadband ran absolutely fine with no glitches and then one day out of the blue after having just checked my emails the day before I switch my computer on to find it doesn't connect to the internet straight away because somehow it's picking up a secondary unidentified public network from my ONE and ONLY Ethernet adapter and it refuses to connect. The only temporary resolution I have found so far is to disable and re-enable my Ethernet adapter before the internet will start every time i boot the computer. IMPORTANT NOTE: The unidentified network issue only occurs if my laptop is turned on and connected to the internet as well, if the laptop is off my desktop will boot with internet and no problems at all. P.S my Desktop does not have Wireless! 6th: 3-4min Booting Splash Screen (Desktop PC Only) - [UNRESOLVED] My most recent issue occurred only days ago and for some unknown reason 7 now takes 3-4 minutes to boot at the splash screen and that's not including POST. I'd like to note that there were no changes to 7 i.e. updates, driver installs etc prior to it's last shut-down. So that's what I've been plagued with so far with Windows 7. I have got to say Vista was a breeze for me compared to this, I'm not convinced Win 7 is all it's cracked up to be yet. Please share your opinions, stories and advice it would be much appreciated.
