We can use the factory restore partition, if you can go any other way. What is the name an model of your computer?

Attempting to reinstall I have my product key. I have a Sony VAIO VPCCW17FX, but I couldn't find anything for the partition, even though I know it's supposed to be there for this. I am downloading the drivers from Sony right now.

If you have the key and a DVD and the download works you will be in good shape. We can make a back up with Macrium Reflect so this does not happen again.

No need to use Macrium. Win 7's built-in Backup and Restore works perfectly for system image backups and restores. I've done enough times. I did some serious testing of this feature and the system image and restore passed with 100%.

I'm not as fond of the other features of Win 7 Backup and Restore, but with System Images then Win 7 Backup and Restore works perfectly.

Use Macrium, its the best and better than the built in system.

I strongly disagree. Each to his own said the man as he kissed the cow.

Good you can disagree, but I suggest Macrium, and many others do too.

built-in admin account vs regular admin account
Pretty basic question (I think). Is the built-in administrator's account exactly the same as a manually created local administrator's account privilege wise? Or does the built-in possess inherently elevated privileges? I have googled around, however, I can't find a clear answer for this. ...
