    Have installed this twice using the different options and the OS seems to drag considerably. The optical drive is not very responsive and the shutting down takes ages. I have installed enditall with no effect. Really need some help here Windows Advisor never threw up any issues. Plenty of HHD space and 4GB RAM. The laptop is only one year old.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    So your general problem is that it is extremely slow? Correct? Have you tried running the drive cleaner yet? For me I had to do that.

    Install the latest drivers from your PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site, beginning with the chipset. If there are no specific Windows 7 drivers use the Vista ones.
