If you run that small program that I sent you and it shows your copy as guenuine then you can download your own copy of the OS and burn it to a DVD. I really think you will be well advised to re-install the version that came with your PC though. You know for sure that is guenuine so we can help you with that if necessary, indeed your best bet is to go for a clean install of and OEM Version.

Hi, would this be a typical example of..... if you messed with the system and something went pear shaped, format the HDD and start all over again with the complete program re-installing......files etc should have been backed up as you go.

From our other thread it looks like you are going to follow Gregrockers sound advice so stick with that. You can't do better! (IMHO)

Hi, I would have to agree with you, but the thought of having to start all over again is still a worry.

You tend to accumulate so many links and web sites in your favourites box, and all your emails too.

Whenever some Earth shattering move is made, like updating to a new computer, the complete infrastructure you've built up never seems to occur the same way.

Of course it does pay to read a "walk me through the maze" that occurs not only with a new computer but a completely new OP system.

But you can export your Favorites and emails to a storage device and import them to the new installation very easily with Win 7! If you need help with any items like this please post the question here and one of us (or more) will come to your rescue. The new install of Windows 7 onl looks daunting because Greg gives such clear and concise guidance. read through the guide a couple of times and you will see what i mean. Again even if you have the slightest doubt about any aspect of the procedure, just ask here!

Hi, thanks a ton......being a 2 finger key tapper has made me cautious......my next chore on my 2 do list......lucky I don't have too much "stuff" spread about the drive.
