Windows 7: Multiple problems/questions from a Seven newbie

23 Sep 2010   #21


The Repair Install tutorial is from our very own site's Adminstrator Brink: Repair Install

It is nice to see that a Win7 Repair Install can sort out even the most bloated and botched factory install, a real tribute to Win7 engineering.

Be sure to save a backup image of the repaired Win7 in case your sister's family get adventurous with their repair attempts again. Then you can just reimage it in 15 minutes and get another free dinner.

You're on Seven now, forget all you learned about XP, its ancient history, its a different layout and like every new thing it has to be learnt.

The trouble is many people go straight from XP to 7 and get a shock at the difference, whereas if they'd started with Vista then moving to 7 it would be a breeze.
