Yes, I did download the ISO from that exact place. Did you try to pass it to USB and it worked for you?
I had read about Rufus and was about to try it when I saw another one called Universal Extractor I think, and I realized that WinRar can be associated to ISO, so I just gave it a try and well, I could "Extract File" with WinRar to the USB.

Unfortunately, I do not know why, it did not work out. I rebooted and chosen USB but not "operative system" was found on my portable USB drive (maybe because it is a Hard Drive and not a Flash USB?).

So I burned the ISO on a CD. I did not want to waste a CD for that (also because it was my only one and I am extremely lazy for buying CD, as I do not use them anymore).
It worked.
My PC is clean. I mean, it was already clean. Comodo has only found a supposed trojan in a exe on the Avira folder, a bar installator. I suppose it is a false positive but I removed it anyway.

Well, all those other options, are, many!

I think I am fine for now.
Just wanted to see if there was something which was not seen from Windows.
But had not really reasons to worry, I mean, my PC is going fine.

Cheers and thanks for the answers!
Ben if I read this as is you are running two AV programs on the one machine?? - usually not recommended mate as they probably will conflict in some way. So I would if I were you run CIS or Avira not both

Hello looked,

How's the USB formatted?

For now, see if the free program Rufus may work for you instead.

Thanks Brink,
problems started since I tried to upgrade from IE8 to IE9, now device manager doesn't show drives anymore so that might be the reason why the Micro$oft tool doesn't work.

I checked Rufus already and found too much to read about it and too many options so I gave up, sorry I got a family to care about and not much time to play with the computer. Lol
But I found wintobootic which fixed my problem, very very easy to use and efficient.
It seems strange to me (maybe NOT) that the creator of the OS made a tool that failed while third party guys were able to find solutions that suit the users' needs!

How long does it usually take to copy the files? Its been 15 minutes, and the bar is still stuck at 0% :/

Hello John,

It usually only takes a few minutes or so.

If you're doing this on a DVD, then you might try again on a new unformatted DVD to see if that may be the issue.
