Windows 7 is a dramatic improvement over Windows Vista, and while it is the fastest Windows operating system, it seems to still be plagued by its own set of problems. Herein, I will help identify and show you how to fix common Microsoft Windows 7 problems I see.
When we say problem, it is truly hard to define if this is a bug of the Windows operating system, possibly a feature or function of the system that you enjoyed previously that is not working, or as in most cases, it is a function that was working and is no longer functioning properly.
The below set of problems and their respective solutions are associated with Windows 7 bugs and functions that are no longer working properly. The list is not in any specific sorting, nor are they alphabetized so you will need to scan the article to find a solution for your specific problem. Note, they are also specific network-related problems we have featured in another article.
In some cases, these Windows 7 tips may recommend you to modify registry settings. In such cases, please acknowledge the following warning:
Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to re-install Windows to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.
Though it is true the Windows 7 operating system is a resources hog, quite often this occurs because your system was not fully compatible for Windows 7, or if you are noticing a decline in performance, then it may be due to the installation of new software, adding or reconfiguring PC hardware, such as how the system interacts with your hard drive, video card, or other component.
If the latter is your issue, you could be plagued by software that was not properly developed for Windows 7, or more than likely, there are a few preventive maintenance steps that most users neglect to perform on their computers. If you have not purged temporary files from your computer lately, may I suggest you read a couple of other articles here on pcsupporthub.com:
