Windows 7: A problem that is taking me months to find a way to fix....

It's worth it when it's done :-) It probably won't do any harm leaving all the bloatware programs on - if there are any - but if there is Java I would remove it. Control panel - uninstall programs.

When it's all finished you might have the Windows 10 upgrade icon appear. If you don't want it there's a thread on here which shows which updates to remove to get rid of it.

It should be fine. Some people leave their laptops switched on permanently. They can run a bit warmer when working hard doing a lot of updates, but it if it overheated it would just shut down probably.

The update took 14 hours and there are some updates left to do


BTW I've found something really odd, i did resetted it to factory settings but its sooo slow that when i move my mouse,it stops responding for 5 minutes then when i click/type something there,it stops responding too long then it will say windows explorer has stopped responding then it takes me almost 45 minutes to boot to my desktop and 1 hour to reboot. It was slower than the old self of that laptop Any help???

It takes that long because you were in the middle of updating, after all your updates are done, windows should not take but a minute to reboot.

I think you said you had Dell discs with drivers on? There may be a repair option on there. That's a shame when you were nearly updated.

How did you actually lose your Windows install in the first place? Just wondering if there is a hardware issue.

I have my dell drivers and utilities cd which only does is a diagnostics

Btw is there a way i can do a system restore over there? I think that can be the only solution since i made a restore point of the laptop before it happened

I don't understand what you mean there, sorry. You could try the drivers and utilities disc and see if it has a repair option or even a recovery option to reinstall. When you say you made a restore point, I don't think that will help if Windows is not booting and loading - unless you mean you made a system image?

Once Windows was installed you would have had the option to burn a dvd as a repair disc, or make a system image and there might also have been a Dell option to make recovery discs of the Full windows install.
