WIN7 Pro vs WIN7 Ultimate

Has anyone noticed any performance problems with WIN7 Ultimate? I have a domain with 30+ workstations all running WIN7Pro except one was shipped with WIN7 Ultimate. The ultimate operating system seams to lock up from time to time and I've tried everything to increase performance. Only thing noticeable is it's Ultimate and all the others are Pro.

Your thoughts?

No, the fact that it's Windows 7 Ultimate (instead of Professional) shouldn't make a significant difference.  However, the way that the system was originally configured may be problematic.

i too have a win7 ult and never had any lock ups.

do all machines have the same hardware setup?
If your W7 Ultimate was preinstalled by the computer manufacturer (Like HP or DELL), then you probably have a lot of stuff preinstalled which can drastically slow down your computer.
But it would be the same with W7 Pro.
How did you manage to install W7 pros and W7 Ultimate ? preinstalled or Fresh Windows install made by yourself ?

I am using the Win7 Ulitimate from last 6 months, so far i havent faced any performance issue.

FYI... Try CCleaner to clean the machine. It may increase a little in Performance apart from space.
