I'm thinking of doing a clean install on this computer. There is too much damage on the machine I only have a few programs on this computer ans, luckily, still have all the product keys. So I think that wll be the easy way out.
Thanks for the help you provided, ICIT2LOL, whatever that means.

No Bill the PS was just an afterthought on what the machine model number was as there are so many.

So if you are thinking of a clean install then take a read of this it is the easiest way to go and you don't need the original media either - you can borrow any Windows DVD and unlock the version that it cam with using the ei.cfg removal tool Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 referenced in this tutorial and the link anyway is this Ei.cfg Removal Utility Lets You Use Any Product Key With Your Windows 7 Disc
You can of course just get a new OEM but I would in all honesty try to team it with a new drive

The upshot (even surprised e when I first read it) was that all versions of Windows 7 are on a DVD it just needs picking the right version (you had originally installed) out of them. You will have the activation code on the bottom of the machine and better still you will not get any of the machine manufacturers bloatware. Greg the tutorial writer is the absolutely master when it comes to this and more besides of course and he will advise you on any queries as will any of us anyway

Mate if you can run to an SSD say 250GB if you are a general user like me you will find the thing will run like a rocket. You can always clone to a larger one later

Still blathering on when you get the updates and security fixed then this is my bible for getting the best out of the machine Optimize Windows 7

Just a tip before you do anything save the downloads for the programs you use onto a stick it makes downloading them so much faster.

Look you don't have to thank me that much mate I am just glad I can help a fellow senior like myself out - we got to stick together and by the by if I didn't mention it I am an RN and still working so I know how annoying it is for folks in your situation - minds revving away and the body well it is sorta lags behind a bit eh LOL!! I know mine does cos the arthritis is fast catching up as some of my younger days smoking and drinking has

Definitely go for an SSD if you can afford one. You will never look back.

I did a clean install and after a few days of putting my programs back in I'm faced with a fast computer.

Best option for an infected computer?
I may or may not be infected with malware/virus, but I'd just like to clean out my system anyway. (There are some signs of them but scanners report nothing.) What is the best method? I currently have Macrium Reflect but am not sure if that's the best way for my situation.
