Respected Sir ,
I Thank you for the thoughtful reply and contents therein . I really appreciate the concern.
Firstly i have already made use of recovering my system by way of using the factory recovery disks , made on purchase. Because the system had some very persistent viral problems after the first year of purchase and had no choice but to use them , as all other methods had failed me . And of course that also means that i cannot [apparently] ever use the recovery partition on the internal hard disk drive in order to revive my system whenever need be. So that ship has sailed.
Now i have only my disks that i use to revive the frequent and unknown crashes of windows seven. Hence i a shall be making several disk set copies to have peace of mind that i need in order to know that i can atleast revive my system at will.
As far as the point you make of extracting the [iso] image of disk to a back-up drive , then i must say that i have never done or know how to do that , besides , i dont use back up [external disks] and further more i wanted to know if the disks that i shall make a lot of copies of , will solve the problem of ever having to be stuck with dusks that wont boot at some time??? isnt making them a good idea???
Lastly i really appreciate your advise on doing that clean install thing to get rid of all this 'set' bloatware and seemingly very rigid format , not allowing me to enjoy the operating system as i would in the old days with self built desktops. I have heard about this thing you mentioned but just am scared to venture into this new pattern , fearing the loss of an already existing and a somewhat usable system. Just not knowing what to expect , and i dont want to end up in the big box place / S/Station etc for no reason.
That said i would like to learn and go through how i can maybe do something to change this into a machine that doesn't take most of the time maintaining and repairing and observing etc
I am grateful for the links sent by you. I shall go through them and see if i can make any sense of it.
Mean while i appreciate if you have any tips on what i should keep an eye out for , if i do go in for this clean install and how will it make a difference or be superior to current format.
Main question from me would be , is it that these very disks [the factory recovery disks] will be the ones that will be used to install windows 7 on my internal disk again? or will i be needing newer disks or other kinds of software to intall /recover etc my windows seven , once the clean install is done?
Thank you once again Gregrocker , And my apologies for the long post/reply/message.
Have a wonderful day.
