Windows 7: Always dowloading "Corrupted Files"

02 May 2010   #11

Windows 7

bah. tomorrow ill boot up my old laptop with the cracked screen and plug it into my spair small screen and download it to my school flash drive. i jsut hope its big enough, only 1gb. maybe i will borrow a friends that has a 30gb.

and i understand the need to do it, im jsut to lazy. I've reinstalled windows on old computers all added up at least 5 times in the past 6 years. so pretty much a yearly thing.

the biggest bummer is that this computer is ony 5 months old. so i think first i will order the recover disks from the manufacturer for $20 (dont want to use teh create myself option, my luck some virus would destroy those) and reboot the hard drive, THEN do all of this
