Why is Windows 7 still as slow as Vista with File Copy??

I was expecting Windows 7 to be fast at file copy as this was one of the sour points with Vista.  However, there is no difference!  How does one get back to the speed of XP with regards to file copy in Windows 7?

Background intelligent transfer service was my problem.

Changed to Manual/Stopped.

Win 7 slow, moving and copying files, all fixed.
Update - BITS was not the problem. Do Not Disable.

After a fresh install on a new HDD, I had the same problems.

I have a ATI FireGL v5600 Graphics card. After I updated to the Feb 2012 Driver, NO more problems.

I long suspected the graphics card was the problem. Problem Solved for me.

Best Advice: Update All Drivers ASAP.
