Depache, You have an Illegal copy of Adobe that needs to be gone and not put back on. If you go through the process of cleaning your system then go back to doing what you did, it will be a waste of time. I hope you have learned a valuable lesson here. Plus, it will not only mess up your system, it is also theft. If you want to get your system running right and legal, we will help you, but you have to be up front with us. We won't help with anything less.

Do you have an SSD or a mechanical hard drive? I also need you to tell me if your OS is legal, save me the trouble of finding out. You will not need a third party program to wipe the drive. I will show you how it do it. Do you have installation disk/USB to reinstall the OS?

im using i think a legal version it should be a legal key being its from when i bought my old pc i once got windows xp black edition on one of my older computers years ago but that computer is long dead and the hd with it. the key is a sticker on the side of my pc. and i have a disc with another key. i just keep using them every new computer i make so this is number 4 in 15 years. i have learned my lesson and i checked out that site and changed my passwords to the accounts that were hacked i had 2 of 5. thank you for your time i really appreciate it. if you can help me with the reset i can be fresh and start anew. this time if i BSOD (god forbid) it will be due to overheating or something (i hope not that either).

um the SSD i dont have, i have blank CD's if that counts. yes to install disk and i have USB's but no USB install stick

On another clean computer, Go to the Gigabyte web site for your Motherboard (GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z77-D3H (rev. 1.0)) and download all of the Drivers for your board. You will not need the one listed as Sata pre Install. Up top at this link, determine if your board is Revision 1.0, 1.1 or 2.0. Just click the link for the appropriate one.

Do this on a clean computer. Your Install DVD; is it an official Microsoft Install DVD?

You also have to be sure there are no viruses, keyloggers or rootkits on your other hard drives. We are going to disconnect them during the install. You will have a perfectly clean install when we are finished. But, when you connect the other hard drives after the install, if they have any viruses on them it will mess everything up. So be sure before we start. If it requires running those scans again, it will be worth it. We are going to do the install with nothing but the OS hard drive connected. It will take several hours to wipe the drive clean and install windows. Let me know when you have time and are ready.

When you get ready to do the install, read through this first Clean Install Windows 7

When you are ready, disconnect 1 wire from every hard drive you have except the one you want to install Windows on. Make sure you have backups of all personal files. I would usually recommend a system image, but you have a lot of viruses and other things you would not want to go back to. Disconnect everything from the computer except the mouse and keyboard.

Boot into the USB/DVD drive with the installation files. The first screen you come to will be select your language. Don't select it. Hold down the shift key and press F10. You will get a command prompt window. type diskpart into the window and press enter. Wait until the window replies with diskpart. Type list disk and press enter. Every disk connected will show with a disk number. If you have disconnected all disks like I suggested, there will be only 1 and the USB. You can tell which is which by the size. Yours should be numbered disk 0. Type select disk 0 and press enter. The computer will reply, disk 0 is the selected disk. type clean all and press enter. Go have lunch somewhere. Depending on the size of your hard drive it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to 6 or 8 hours. Even though it will look like it is doing nothing, it is. Just leave it alone and let it work. When it finishes the window will say diskpart cleaned the selected disk. It is completely wiped clean and nothing at all is left on it. Type Exit and press enter. Type exit again and press enter. You will be back on the select your language page. Continue until you get to the where do you want to install windows. You should see your 1 disk and it should say unallocated. select the disk then click next and the installer will do everything else, just like in the tutorial.

I have more disks connected than you will have and I selected a different disk to show for an example. You should have 1 disk and it will be disk 0. You will select disk 0 where I selected disk 3. But, this is about what it should look like.

If you have any questions, just ask. It is pretty simple.

Also, make sure you have all of the drivers you need downloaded from your Motherboard's web site as listed in post # 33. I usually put them on a USB flash drive. Make certain you have downloaded them from another clean computer and at a bare minimum, make certain you have the LAN driver and/or the wireless driver, whichever you use. If the installer does not have the proper drivers for your Ethernet connection, you will not be able to connect to the internet without it.

Once the install is completed and it is completely finished, shut the computer down and reconnect the other hard drives. Then run all Windows Updates if you have internet connection. If you don't have internet, install the Lan driver then run the Windows Updates. That will take quite a while.
