Windows 7 SP 1: What issues are you now having after the upgrade? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading, I noticed slower overall performance ranging within offline applications to online apps like IE 8. Some apps are slowly loading, are sluggish or even freezing.  I am using 64 bit Windows 7 Professional and 6 GB DRAM.

  • Does it happen all the time?

    Please make a xperf trace to diagnostic the slowness. Install the xperf [1] and run those commands:


    xperf -on latency -stackwalk profile -f kernel.etl
    xperf.exe -start UserTrace -on Microsoft-Windows-Win32k -f user.etl


    Run the programs here.

    xperf.exe -stop UserTrace
    xperf.exe -stop
    xperf -merge user.etl kernel.etl hangs.etl

    Please upload the hangs.etl file to your SkyDrive [2] and post a link here. I'll take a look at it, maybe I can see more details.

  • The first thing I noticed different on Windows 7 Home Premium is that iTunes doesn't work any more. Odd, because on my W7 Ultimate laptop, it does work (though I don't use it there and it has only 3 songs in its library). Hopefully the culprit will release an update soon that will fix it - no idea if it's MS or Apple, though since it was OK until SP1 that does kind of point the finger at MS.

  • I'm having the iTunes problem too after installing Win 7 SP 1. My iPod Touch wouldn't sync, and when I tried to reset to factory defaults and restore the device I got the message "The iPod software update server could not be contacted. An unknown error occurred (1621)." Apple support told me that this was a new thing being reported -it didn't show up in the database when the support person looked it up. I also noticed a tremendous amount of hard disk activity, and SLOW, SLOW performance. I removed 1 Windows Update that I had applied on 3/2/11, and that didn't fix it. Next, I removed Service Pack 1, and the problem went away - I was able to restore my iPod touch, and sync it up with iTunes like normal again. Performance has improved too. Something seems to be wrong with the service pack when installed on my Win 7 Professional desktop (running i7-950 with 6Gig).
