Go to %localappdata%\microsoft\Windows Sidebar
Rename Settings.ini to settings-old.ini and launch sidebar.

There is your problem. Torrents, (or demoid) can have added anything, or removed anything to make it fit on one dvd.

These are not legit Images, and we have no way of knowing what they have done to it. My advice, purchase a retail copy from microsoft.

BTW there is no win 7 ultimate lite that is legit.

Why cant you run the full win 7 ultimate? HD space or Ram?
