Cant open downloaded file

Hi,

Ive just installed Windows 7 Pro and im struggling to open a downloaded file. Ive downloaded MSE 64-Bit and it wont work together with Speccy. The file is there in downloads but nothing happens.

The other issue is that in my browsers, Chrome and IE9 the pages seem like they have not loaded correctly.

Can you assist please.

Mick

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Are you saying you can't install MSE with Speccy running?
If that's the case, exit Speccy and try to install MSE.

Can you post screen prints of what you see for the browser problems, and explain what is wrong?

Thanks for getting back to me. Ignore Speccy as thats something else. This is a fresh install of Win 7 Pro 64-Bit which i have just done around 10 mins ago. Ive not entered my Product Key, is this the issue?

Thanks

I don't think that would be the issue, but I don't know for sure.
You do need to have a genuine Windows to use MSE, but I would think a new install not yet activated would be considered genuine.
Maybe someone else here will know if I'm wrong and that is the issue.

Yes, other people can see this thread and any members with suggestions can post in this thread.

If an SF Administrator feels a thread should be in a different forum to get better support, they will move it and you should get an email letting you know.

It looks like you have an Acer PC and you re-installed Windows.
Where did you get the Windows installation disc, or did you do a factory recovery?

This tutorial has everything needed to re-install, including a link to get the latest official Windows ISO.
You do need a valid key to use this, but you can compare how you installed Windows to this tutorial.
