Windows 7: I need advice whether or not to do a fresh install of windows

To get copies of Microsoft operating systems from school indicates that they are for student use. To install them in someone else's PC albeit a relative of yours is not only an illegal act on your part that could get you banned from this Forum but you would be involving other people in your criminality.
Buy a legal copy of the software you need from Microsoft then follow Gregs guide to a clean install!

Yeah for sure. I'm currently putting up baseboards so it won't be until tomorrow at the earliest

Can you get anything out of these? I can also pull up the minidump files. I have a feeling this may be graphics related..
