Windows 7: How do I reset my computer?

Use Wintobootic, it`s soooo easy. And so is Rufus.

As Brink says, you can`t drag and drop, you are making a bootable usb stick and it doesn`t work like that.

When you drag and drop, you are just putting the file on the usb stick, just like if you were to put documents or pictures on it. making it bootable is not the same thing.

I asked you 2x now if you`ve checked the size of the iso file, and you have not answered. What is the size of the iso file you downloaded ?

I think I got it without using that thing though. I used WinRar to unpack the files into the USB Flash Drive. I'll post a pic when it's done unpacking.

Why are you using WinRAR ?

Nowhere did we say to use WinRAR.

And the file size should be 3.09 GB, not what you have.

Please use 1 of the 2 programs I linked for you, and please delete the iso file you have and download it again.

Make sure you are choosing Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 bit.

Let us know when it`s done and you have confirmed the size.

OK I'll download it again.

Edit: downloading the 3.1GB one. It has the same name as the other one.
