I just upgraded to Windows 7 but something doesn't look right. I'm not sure if I should remove it then reinstall it, or if there is something else I can do to make it look better. Suggestions on what to do before I would try to remove it first? Thank you.

Below are some troubleshooting tips for Windows 7.

  1. Perform a Performance Troubleshooter by clicking on the Start > Control Panel.  Look for the search box and then type “Troubleshooter” in it.  Click on the Troubleshooting button in the menu that opens up.  Click on the System and Security > Check for Performance Issues.  The Performance Troubleshooter will then start.
  1. Limit the amount of programs that run at startup, as this can waste memory and slow down your computer.  The most common types of programs that can be closed are those that you don’t use often, or hardly ever use.  Go to the notification area on the taskbar where you will see the icons of the programs that are running, hold the mouse cursor to see what the program name is, and if you want to close it, right click on the icon and choose Exit.
  1. If your computer is running sluggish or slow, you can turn some of the visual effects off.  To adjust the visual effects on your computer so that each one runs at their best performance:
  • Click Start and open Control Panel.  Locate the search box and type Performance Information and Tools and click on the on it from the search result.
  • Click on the Adjust Visual Effects button.
  • Click on the Visual Effects Tab and click on the Adjust for Best Performance option and click OK.
  1. Another way to troubleshoot the appearance of your Windows, is to run the Aero Troubleshooter (this is the default theme for Windows 7). Click on Start and then on Control Panel.  Locate the search box and type Troubleshooter. Click on Troubleshooting in menu that opens up and look for Appearance and Personalization.  Click on the Display Aero Desktop Effects.
  2. Perform Maintenance tasks, for e.g. cleaning up files and shortcuts that are hardly used can be cleaned up with the System Maintenance Troubleshooter.  Click Start and open Control Panel.  Locate the search box and type Troubleshooter. Click on Troubleshooting in menu that opens up and look for system and Security.  Click on the Run Maintenance Tasks to start the Troubleshooter.
