I've had Windows 7 since school started because my university installed it on our laptops. Transfer speeds are ridiculously slow, the thing pauses for like 5 seconds between every ****ing file! Anyone know a way to fix this because it's seriously starting to **** me off.

I can only think of two reasons why:

1. You are using torrents and left the upload rate uncapped (which eats your bandwith incredibly fast).

2. You're on a school network or some other public network which either sucks or has someone on the same network doing #1 (in which case you're screwed).

No, internet is just fine.

It's transferring files to my external drive or even between drives on my laptop. It takes almost twice as long as when I had XP.

Oh. I would start with getting driver updates for your hard drives if any are avaliable. If it's an external hard drive, check to make sure it's plugged into a hi-speed USB thing (and the hi-speed USB drivers are working properly themselves).

That's not typical of Windows 7. My transfers are fine.

I Think He Is Talking about the file coping ,

well the "COPY" A file involves the Processor and HDD Speed so if you got an old bad processor you will have a bad time because Windows 7 Needs some extra processing speed and not forgot RAMs anyway the only option you may have is that there is a process that actually drain all the power of your CPU run the task manager and check that one out "CPU USAGE : %X" and till us what The X is on your PC or your cpu is very old and cant handle Windows 7 .
