Gee I figured after I posted some one would suggest to run the upgrade advisor and see if there are any hardware issues, guess this one was a simple answer just do it and see what happens. Thanks for the answer.

Advisor as been installed and ran with only minor issues like Aero might not work with integrated video but other than that looks good plus I did not see the report only the client so far i told her to save it or print it out. Thanks

FInd out what disks she has. Gateway provided Recovery media as well as an OS DVD until recently.

If she has these and they are still bootable, then the Recovery partition can be wiped along with any useless utility partitions which can interfere with Windows 7.

If not, see if you can make Recovery media from that partition, or test it from boot to see if it will run, then decide whether to keep it. It may not run after Windows 7 install, however. If it was all I had to recover to factory condition, then I'd probably keep it if it runs, then test it again after install to see if it still runs. If not, I'd then wipe it and recover the Disk space into Windows 7 using free Partition Wizard bootable DVD.

She has disc as far as I know, she has been taking it to a local repair shop at 80.00 a time and they were suppose to get ride of whatever virus or spyware she had, but they always tell her it may still be infected, so I said I think that is leaving it open-ended for a return trip to the repair shop, which has happened. I think I am going to do a clean install on an 80 gig WD hard drive I have and then she will have all her old data on the original 200 gig hard drive to transfer to the new system drive C: and use the 200igg for storage. I am not sure about getting into the bios to have it boot from disc but I hope its like all the other systems I have built and I am sure I will figure it out. Thanks for the info.

The shop is draining her wallet, sounds like.

Install free MS Security Essentials for real time AV, install, update and run Malwarebytes and SUper Anti SPyware scanners. Keep the Windows firewall on, and any router hardware firewall.

If further evidence of infection or performance problems persist, a clean reinstall to wiped HD (see above links) is the likely ultimate solution.

Who likes the AOL Application version 9.0 or even 9.1, a Comcast guy came and installed her modem and upgraded her from AOL 9.0 to AOL 9.1 lost all her favorites and made the system slower then a snail for a fast broadband connection. Now using Firefox and just AOL home page but not the application and computer is like a different system. Well thanks for all your info once again.
