I ran my scans and found nothing so I don't think it is infected; but you never know.
If they would just post pictures using the tutorial as requested.

There is nothing wrong with the image Its hosted at postimag and I have been using them for years with no issues if you don't want to click on it then don't, SevenForums don't let you upload images it only lets you link so that's what I had to do... Now back to my question, The DVD I bought I made a ISO is this the problem? Can Rufus make a bootable USB from my DVD in fat32 format?

Thanks!

Is your DVD Win 7 32 Bit or Win 7 64 Bit ?

See this tutorial by Brink, Note: The requirements state 32-bit is not supported
UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

Could you borrow a USB DVD drive to see if you can boot the Win 7 disc from that ?

Did you buy the Win 7 from a reputable dealer ?

Ok got it to work, I tried to just mount the .iso since the USB thing wasnt working and I was getting an error 0x6 so what i did was selected install without updates and I didn't receive the error BUT I have to manually install a few drivers like my controller so I could get internet. Anyway, I got everything working and now there is something weird. I have a recovery partition that is showing up, it must be from windows 10 what is it and how do I remove it?

Yep that happens when you make a partition to install an os on
The 450mb I saw that too
The installer did not replace the 100mb system reserved with the 450mb.

I personally cleaned all and started over not creating a partition to install 10 on
But 10 was installed on it's own hdd as well to keep it from messing with win-7's install anymore.
This was quite a while back I have not reinstalled 10 in a few months now.

Please note the partition (C) is to small at 30 gb.
System Reserve does not need a partition letter (E) or any other letter.

From your system specs. Could you please explain.

My Windows 7 32bit has been in for 18 months and due for a rebuild for a few weeks as a few annoying things weren't working right. I loved the desktop gadgets but some would always be on top of everything. I would select Always on top then untick it but odd ones would always be on top. Yes I've posted in the gadget section but one has given a useful reply.

Anyway there has been a popup for Windows 10 in the taskbar which I hated and I found out the Update for Windows 7 (KB3035583) is what makes the popup so I uninstalled it.

Ok you can try out Windows 10 from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10

I installed it today which takes about 1 hour to download and install. I tried all my apps and they still worked. I tried other apps I use ElsaWin and ETKA and they wouldn't work.

I gave it a try for a few hours and I wasn't impressed so I uninstalled it and put back Windows 7 32bit.

Windows 10 doesn't use the desktop gadgets so that's another reason to forget it. I mainly have that for the battery meter being a laptop and the weather.

You also need to install Classic Shell if you want the standard start button. Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements

@Layback bear I have several PC's and laptops with all different OS so I named them all because I can't change it every time I have a question. However I did forget to mention I'm trying to install a 32bit version... Sorry for the confusion!

Now for the exciting news... I did some reading and a few others were suggesting trying a new drive so I went out and bought another USB drive and installed Win 7 32 bit on it and gave it a try just to see what happened. Well it recognized it, wonder why it wouldn't recognize my original USB dongle?
