windows7 hardening checklist

Don't forget to check out resources from the manufacturer itself.  Microsoft
has a free tool called the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager
(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc677002.aspx).  You can import
baselines for several of its products and OSs, including Windows 7.  The Win
7 baseline includes a "Windows 7 Security Guide Doc" and several different
group policy templates covering different scenarios. This is a great tool
for getting started on building a group policy baseline.  Though not
perfect, to be fair, Microsoft has put a lot of effort the past several
years into better securing their products.  Sometimes I think they do not
get the credit they deserve on that front.

You might want to check out the Center for Internet Security
(http://cisecurity.org/en-us/?). They provide hardening benchmarks for many
OS including Windows 7.
