windows 7 repair

Hello, I am looking for a free version of windows 7 or repair disk. I am not trying to pirate anything so if that seems to be the only way please let me know and I will seek another way. I am trying to connect to the internet and I keep getting proxy server is not responding. I uncheck the box in the options and it keeps rechecking the box. I have also tried other ways like fixing registry and updates and system restore and it will not work. please help and thanks in advance

You could download an ISO of Seven. You must have a valid key for this to work. If you do have a key, download and install. You will have to install some updates and all of your stuff, again. Good luck

Everything is here to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which compiles everything that has worked best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here since beta, and been used by over a million consumers without a single complaint.

Be sure to read the Special Note to Dell Owners at the end so you know which partitions to keep when you do the booted reinstall, which is important to getting the cleanest install.

Hi,
If having uses connecting to the internet long enough to download scanners...
Safe mode with networking,
Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)
Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,
Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.
Login as usual

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/338716-malwarebytes-anti-malware-free.html
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,

Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,

SAS is safe to remove anything it finds

This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

What do you mean that you're trying to install Win7 from a site we recommended? At which step in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 are you receiving this error exactly? If it's while trying to boot the installer you created, then download another ISO to completion and use the tool provided to burn another disk or flash stick installer. Then boot the installer correctly and do not run it from Windows.
