Windows 7 RC1 x64 crashes during large file operations
Were you idling at the time of crash? Or playing audio/viewing media? A/V rendering crashes happened to me for a while too, updating all drivers and completely updating W7 fixes those.

Windows 7 X64 Ultimate
So it stille the same problem as in this Thread!
!I just installed Windows 7 ulitmate x64 bit and everything seems to run as it should!
straight until you try to transfer the file to the NAS server, so it just freezes the screen and there is no more, and you are forced to keep the start button to restart.
It does not blue screen or anything, it just says that Windows was not closed as it should and you can now choose failsafe or normal.
Can anyone help me?
Windows 7 Freezes on file transfers - Windows 7 specific bug!
Same Problem: Windows 7 freezes completely within minutes while doing large file transfers. That behaviour is reproducable.
That symptom makes it hard to narrow down the cause of the freezing, for there is no BSOD or entry stored in the event log. This is what I tested to come to the conclusion, that Windows 7 has a major bug which makes working with it unbearable:
First of all I made sure, that the hardware is ok. Therefore I ran
And I found, that the RAM and CPU are both ok and run for hours under heavy stress. Also the HDDs/SSDs show no SMART errors. All components are within their temperatur range. I did no overclocking.
That leaves one with the software. So I made sure, that all drivers and software packages are up to date. With the hardware OK and the software up to date I tried to blame the OS by booting a live version of Ubuntu copying files for hours.
Normally if a windows runs into driver problems it at least shows a BSOD and creates a memorydump. Windows 7 does not do that. The hardware was tested OK and the same copy actions under a Linux system caused no crashing. Which leads me to my conclusion, that Windows 7 has a fat ugly bug that is somehow bound to copy processes. And if you google windows 7 freeze you currently get 10.600.000 results. Which tells me, that I am not alone and there _exists_ a nasty freeze bug in Windows 7.
I like Windows 7 and it runs like charm and for hours if I don't copy stuff around... But I can't work with such an operating system - think video editing and making backups!
Anyone any idea on troubleshooting?

i gave up windows 7 because of a few BSODs...
i gave up windows 7 because of a few BSODs. I'm using xp sp2 , both at home and work.
BSODs occured randomly , some times I was just moving the mouse across the desktop , while the computer was idle , and bang...
It doesn't take much more then this on a perfectly new i7 system with 6 giga ram , to make me go back to xp , which although is using only 3 giga RAM , is perfectly stable...

Yeah, what a shame, that XP 64 bit is no option for the most, since the software and driver support for it are somewhat poor... seems as if I need to run a XP 32 bit parallel to Windows 7 until Microsoft fixes that freezing behaviour... and I have 8 Gig of RAM ;D

I must say that a few days ago I have set up windows 7 on 2 brand new corei7-920 systems ; On these 2 powerful systems windows7 has behaved without any single-insignificant blink , i mean it behaved 100% stable and 100% responsive and 100% perfectly OK ! It's my old PC (with Intel 965workhammer Mobo, 3.5 years old ) that first crashed using windows7 , so i reverted to xp; well , today xp has also started crushing my old pc ...
