Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

In the screen print in post #4 i only see one "OEM" partition, not two.
That partition shows as 39 MB Total space and 38 MB Free space.
I don't know what purpose that partition could be used for now
It's not large enough for a factory recovery.
The 13.2 GB Unallocated space might have been the factory recovery partition, but is no longer usable after the re-installs.
I have added a screenshot of my Disk Management section. Perhaps I was mistaken but I'm pretty sure I saw two of the same disc-like image when I put in the Windows 7 installation disc.

As of now, can I have a brief explanation of what each of these parts in my Disk Management image is for?

If not a reinstall, how about just "refreshing the OS"? Also to add, the reason my application was acting strange was because of a certificate revocation. If that is the only thing that has happened, then perhaps I don't need to touch my PC right now.

Nope everything looks okay.
Like I said earlier the UAC prompt is fairly normal for programs that can make system wide changes.
I'm sure it won't be the last program to have that happen with/ click yes and move along
Just be tankful you don't have to enter a password like in a standard user account or in Linux

I actually noticed that the program, Alienware Command Center, has a revoked certificate, so I get a UAC prompt because Windows 7 wants to know if I should still allow this program to run even though the license is revoked.

If User Account bothers you, just disable it, I haven`t used it for years, it`s totally unnecessary, in my opinion.

Others have their opinion, but I think it`s useless.

You can contact Dell or alienware and ask what's up and if they plan on updating their crapware

Haha. Crapware.

Well; there's not much more to say here. Thank you all for the help.
