I hate WINDOWS 7 and I wanna go back
Hello to all fellow users. I started to read thru the forums but this windows 7 is so friggin slow I would still be here by Christmas.
I thought this would be quicker as I am ready to pitch this out. If I type quicker than 5 wpm the letters all go missing and of course the text unreadable. Every thing on myPC is so slow. All programs aswell as the Internet. I want togo backto VISTA. YES you heard me right.
Now, what I did was just install Win 7 right over Vista. I did this as an upgrade option.
#1 Can I go back?
#2 How do I go back?
#3 YES, I do have a Vista disk
#4 In the control panel under the add/remove programs there is an entry in there called Upgrade. Does this have anything to do with the upgrade to Windows 7 ? If so can I use this to go back Vista?
#5 Will I get back all my installed programs. EX: Windows mail with all contacts and messages? Or will itcome back as a virgin PC running windows vista?
#6 Thats all for now but I am sure I will think of more questions as I slowly start to get my wits about me.
Did I mention I know enough about computers just to be dangerous?
Please please can someone help me out while I still have some hair left?
I don't know about going back but your mistake was to upgrade instead of a clean install. Clean install is always best even though you have to reinstall all of your software and data.
Yes a very slow windows 7
Windows 7 was given to me by a buddy who installed it on his PC. and he said all is well with his PC . It was Windows 7 Ultimate and he told me he got it off the web. I was running Vista ultimate. I did stay at 32 > 32. I simply inserted the disk and choose upgrade instead of install.
Now if I put in the Vista disk, I guess I will have to select the install optn. Will this wipe out all the programs that I currently have installed? If this is the case I might as well use the systems' option to revert the PC back to day one.
I am trying to save all my programs and data.
Do you have any idea what the " upgrade " program is under Control Panel, Programs and Features, uninstall a program is?
I have done many upgrades over the years and have never run into this before. If I get back to Vista, I would really have to think it over before I would try this upgrade to WIN 7 again.

If you upgraded from Vista to Win7, the upgrade can't be uninstalled. Your only option is to re-install Vista (or use a manufacturer's system restore). All of your installed applications will be gone. Make sure to back up all data. Be particularly careful if you have any local email archives.
If Win7 is running badly, something is seriously messed up with your installation. Win7 usually runs as fast or faster than Vista, and Win7 apparently can run OK on systems with weaker hardware. (I've seen it run OK on an old notebook PC with a slow CPU and 1GB of RAM.)
That's why people recommend a clean install rather than an upgrade. Upgrading over Vista probably works OK in most cases, but there may be exceptions. You appear to be one of them. The only upgrade I tried was the original public beta (build 7000) over Vista Home Premium X64. It made such a mess of things that I have subsequently only done clean installs.

It sounds to me that your buddy has gotten ahold of either a badly modified/messed up pirate copy or an early build, as in pre beta/RC. My only suggestion is that in future, make sure you know the source of the software, if it didn't come from microsoft, it's probably not a good idea to install it.
Thanks to all
Thank you folks.
Looks like I will back up my files and then revert back to VISTA. And I guess your right Radenight. I might as well try putting Windows 7 back in as a clean install and see what happens.
Are all the versions of Windows 7 going to expire and if they do, then what? If we do not purchase the Windows 7 we will have to revert back to Vista or XP?
Yes you will have to do an install of VISTA or XP depending on what you like,

Do what you should have done. Back up your data and do a clean install of Vista.
Something I have done for a long time is to partiton the HD and put the data separate from the OS. Then you can reformat and reinstall the system without wiping out your data. Vista and Windows 7 both will handle this without additional software. If you want to take time and research you could load Vista first create a separate partition and Install windows 7 there. You'd still have Vista if you weren't ready to purchase Windows 7 when it begins periodic shutdowns next year. That's dual boot there is a screen up to select which system you want to boot. That's the way I went.
