Multi-tasking has nothing to do with sex, only competence and thoroughness. To successfully troubleshoot requires utmost thoroughness if not keen competence.

May be it is installing the updates? When windows installs the updates, it does not shut down till the updates are all installed. After a clean install, it takes a real big time to get all the updates downloaded and installed.

About computer knowledge, give it only one week with us, on seven forums. You will be good enough to deal with your day to day issues.

Sorry for thinking you a kid You are much senior than me!

Yes, if you try to install Upgrade version to a wiped or new hard drive, it will not see an underlying OS when it is booted for install. Instead after install you must do the quick registry workaround in Option Three of Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version provided to activate Upgrade version on a new or wiped hard drive.

That may have been the reason for the product key problem earlier as well.
