Some of the Windows 7 Problem and Their Solution

Slow System Performance:
Go to > Start and type ‘performance’ in the search field.
Select > Adjust the appearance and performance of windows’ from the results.
The performance > option window will open. Under > Visual effects select > adjust for best performance.

If you would like to retain a nice interface, Select > Custom and Check > ‘Use visual styles on windows and buttons’.
If you feel system performance is ok only at the time of startup is slow then open the system configuration window then go to the startup remove the unusual software from startup list but make sure the program or service does not belongs to Windows listed item.
If you are not sure what the program or service belongs to does not disable it.
Once you have made all of your changes, click OK and restart your system.
Windows Aero Not Working
Before doing any change in registry please make sure you have taken backup of registry because editing the registry can cause permanently damage to windows installation.
Go to start type ‘regedit’
Open the option KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM. 
The value of entry > “EnableAeropeak” should be set to 1 rather than 0.
Shutting down windows is supposed to be quick process but sometimes you find shutdown screen stuck for several minutes.
This is often caused by the page file and the file on the hard drive that stores overflow data on the RAM and if it is set to be cleared at shutdown can slow the process.
Open the registry editor: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management 
Look for the entry “ClearpagefileAtshutdown” and check if it is set to a value of 1 disable it to 0.
Note: Be warned, though, that the page file represents a potential security hole. If someone were to steal your drive, they could look at the page file to try and see what you were working on. This isn’t a concern for most people, but it may be an issue if you handle sensitive information.
Windows 7 hags at shutdown:
Try to shutdown windows freezes entirely or hangs forever.
Open the registry editor:
In the right side pane look for “VerboseStatus” and change its value to 1. If you do not see this entry then right clicks on empty portion of the window.
DVD Drive Not Found on My System:
Windows 7 can not find your optical drive? This is another issue that involves editing the registry. The warning from point 2 applies!
Click > Start, search for > ‘regedit‘ and launch it from the > results. Navigate to > ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class‘. In the > right-hand panel delete > ‘UpperFilters‘ and > ‘LowerFilters‘, restart Windows and see if the problem was resolved.
If not, click > Start, type > Disk Management, and select > ‘Create and format hard disk partitions‘. In the > Disk Management window right-click on the > optical drive icon and select ‘Change Drive Letter and Paths‘. In the > Change Drive Letter and Paths window click the > Change… button and choose a new drive letter. Restart Windows and hope the issue was fixed.
Problem with installation of oracle 9i:
According to Microsoft’s Compatibility Center, Oracle 9i is compatible with no special actions required under Windows 7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Installation is thus straightforward.
Oracle 9i can be installed on windows7 machine by setting all .exe files on windows xp sp2 and run as an administrator and start the installation process by running install.exe not setup.exe. If you get error ignore and re-install later by removing or un-installing it first.
