My installation starts up OK; although it seems to have trouble launching the icons in the toolbar and the system monitor area - that part takes a bit too long.
Shut down takes a very long time compared to 7 Beta.
I did a Clean install.
But after installing my app's and files, and I was all done, I discovered that I.E. would not launch, and Outlook 2007 would not launch properly either. It was then that I did an Upgrade over the defective install which fixed the problems I was having.
I would note that start-up seems to be improving over time, as if the OS is "Learning" my setup. Am I nuts!?
Hi all, I read the other day on an MS knowledge base (Sorry, can't recall precisely which one) that the 'slower boot' and shutdown' was down to having not 'manually' activated the product key.
After 3 days use Win7RC automatically activates itself, and then you'll have 'noticed' it booting quicker (more like the Beta version) So, if you've only just downloaded the Win7RC, 'activate' your key immediately, you'll 'see' the 15 seconds of black, before continuing to load, will be reduced
