Windows 7 Problems

Hi, I have recently upgraded my computer by clean install from XP professional to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit. Since I have installed it I am constantly having programs become unresponsive. The computer ran fine whilst running XP. Any help welcome.
My computer specs are:
Processor: AMD athlon 64 X2 4200+ 2.2ghz
Ram: 3.0GB
Windows Experience Index: 3.9
Please Help!!!

Yep, that might happen

Not all programs that worked in XP will work with Windows 7.

You said a clean install, so that means you have installed these programs. Which ones are unresponsive?

Even with 3GB RAM.

I install the 64 bit version. Long discussion why but saves me from many later upgrades.

OK, you say this is unresponsive. I had my HP d499t do that (notice how I supplied the make and model?) and it was a missing driver. I can't find how you dealt with drivers and can't find the make and model. Also be specific as to the drivers. If you didn't, then that's it.

If you did, BE SPECIFIC in sharing the order of install and the versions.

Windows 7 Compatibility Center

Like Mark said, not everything that was compatible in XP will be compatible with Windows 7. If you have compatibility questions, you can check the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to see if specific hardware and/or software will work with Windows 7.

Hope this helps!
