Now when you get to Step Two #2 just create a single partition to install Windows 7 to and later we'll discuss how to create another partition to save downloads to using Windows disk management once you have Windows 7 running good.

So reading your above post that i didn't see till after i posted my posting i'm still not sure if i start at the beginning of step number 2 or step number 2. Sorry if i'm bothersome i just don't wanna make a mistake. and if i do start at the first step i see that you have to make it a certain size how do i know what size this is. If i don't do the first step then how do what to type, do i type in what i see like the active and exit (individually of course)

From the language screen you can click Next and then Install Now. Select Custom install and then the partition which you just made to install upon. If no partition exists yet, select Drive Options to create New partition, type in 100000 or whatever size you want, Format, Next.

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device.

Install updates and then programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets. Troubleshooting with MSCONFIG

Use a lightweight free anti virus like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly. CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Then save a Windows 7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or Repair CD. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

What is confusing? Ask questions!

I gave you the full steps to get a perfect install, along with links to the tools needed. Do you not want any of those?

It was clear to me you needed a little extra help which is why I took my time to do that. Instead of complaining that it is too hard, why not ask questions and get the benefit of learning how to make a perfect install?
