You don't need to.

If you look further down the tutorial it shows you how to perform a system restore using a recovery/install disk.

What options appear then?

If you have your Seven install disk it may just be easier to boot into that to do a system restore.

What options do you have from the power button. Have you seen any activation or not genuine messages? If this were the case, you should have an option to activate on the screen somewhere.

Just for the heck of it, you might try holding down the shift key during boot. This is supposed to disable autologon, but it may not be related to your situation.

Have you used any third party software to set up an autologon?

Alright, you will need to repair your computer using your original Windows 7 Installation Disc. Seems like your imageres.dll was corrupt or encountered a problem. You to repair your computer. (If that doesn't work, that means something bigger has happened, like a corrupt installation.)

This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
