Hello Titi,

Is the Windows 7 on your computer one that came preinstalled, or is it a retail copy of Windows 7 that you installed?

If it's a preinstalled Windows 7, then what brand is your computer, and is it a laptop or desktop?

If it's one that you installed, then doing a clean install will wipe the computer clean and put a fresh installation of Windows 7 on it.

Clean Install Windows 7

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Hope this helps for now,
