    We're running Win7 Pro x64 on all of our CAD machines. AutoCAD/Revit 2010-2013 all work great without system issues.

    Users keep creating their own issues, but that's different.

    If my post sounds offensive, but can be meant in a non-offensive manner...I meant the latter.

    Same here.

    We have no issues in running any program either.

    I've just installed windows 7 on a fairly old computer that I had built for CAD drafting (AutoCAD and Tekla) and it seems fine. After a days drawing on AutoCAD 2010LT the program was slowing hugely, to the point I turned the computer off. There was of course some 27 upgrades to install (go and make a cup of tea), then when restarting there were those upgrades to configure (another cup of tea). What seemed forever (I drink slowly) I was up, and cranked up AutoCAD and it 'seems' to be behaving itself now. I'm surmising the background activity of the upgrades was compromising the computer. In the past I'd turn the computer off maybe every 4th to 7th day, but I think now I'll turn it off each evening when I stop work. See if that works....

    The way I treat my home rig is that I'll leave it idle overnight, but then once every 2-3 nights shut it down. It's like it needs its 'sleep' (Power off) so that it's sorted out any updates etc. etc. and then is good to go again.
