There hangs frequently.

Is this a common occurrence when using windows 7 software? I've used XP and Vista before and they did not give me so much problem.

Any windows 7 users? Please comment. Thanks!


Windows 7 uses alot of system resources. I mean, alot. More than Vista, and LOTS more than XP. If you are running an old computer which has been "updated" to Windows 7, you were often better off staying with XP.

Otherwise, some older laptops don't have the correct drivers available for Windows 7. This may also be causing your issue.

However, to answer your overall question, I have found Windows 7 a rather stable operating system, in terms of how stable Windows gets... I administrate over 300 Windows 7 machines at work, and they give me very little cause for trouble. I doubt it is the operating system causing these hangs, but rather your hardware, or drivers.

If you know someone techy, or you yourself are willing to give it a go, try doing a memory check. The one thing I've had at recent which has been causing hangs and glitches has been dodgy memory. just a thought.

Good luck.
