Windows 7: I get a file name warning for some folder called "C:\Program" ?

I solve problems.

Follow the procedure I gave.

I don't carry magic wands.

I bring solutions that WORK!

Run WDO as I advised.

karl, I followed your instructions and (on my niece's computer) created the USB with WDO_Media64 on it. Now my only question is how do I get Windows 7 to boot off the USB? I can hit F12 on my keyboard when restarting and I get a boot list of drives, but for the USB I have five options — USB FDD, USB ZIP, USB CDROM and USB HDD.

I tried picking USB HDD, but it wanted to read off the floppy drive instead of the USB. It did this also for all the other choices. So how do I get the computer to recognize that USB instead of the floppy drive and boot from it?

I did try that and the monitor just remains black and nothing happens. I finally have to restart the computer or turn it off and on again.

well since you can't boot from a usb stick, you will need to burn wdo to a cd/dvd.

Well I made a DVD with the program on it and ran the diagnostic. I did the brief scan then the full scan. There were no options for choosing any drives, so I just ran it. It didn't find anything and I'm still getting that "Program" popup when I start the computer.

Ok, I did as you instructed. After pasting the script the program just shut down. I assume it created the WDOlogs zip file on my desktop. Can't say for sure since I don't remember if it was there before or not. Anyway, you're instructions were kind of confusing. The zip is attached.

desktop,
The "program that shut down" was PowerShell. At the end of the script you will see an EXIT statement which shuts down powershell and returns you to your desktop

If you find my instructions confusing, please tell which part and I'll see what can be done.

I can't write a book and overload everyone. People shy away from lengthy explanations.
