Thanks Noel I did mention something along those lines in post #5 my experience ended in a complete reinstall to get rid of it, but I didn't want to sound too discouraging to be honest. .

Thanks guys ...


Question - On the IObit stuff, is there a better uninstaller that I should use to make sure it's all removed? The irony being that it has it's own uninstaller which is of course completely suspect now. Had no idea their stuff was dangerous.

I'm going to do the repair install

Edit: Getting a bit confused on how I should go about this repair install.
I have a stock Gateway computer with the factory OEM running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
I don't have a disk so I'm downloading the recommended SP1 ISO file.

Do I still need to make this a bootable disk? Or can I just extract it to a folder and run it form there?

Ideally, you should make it a bootable disk or a bootable USB stick - that way if anything goes wrong, you can still boot the system and do a clean install.

But I can still do this without it? ... I don't have a USB large enough or any DVD's available. I'll go buy one but just trying to follow ...

Also, the unistaller for the iObit I mentioned above ... Is it even necessary?

Thanks for all the help

Revo Uninstaller is probably the best available at the moment

Thanks Noel.

It's been awhile since I have delved into the bowels of a system, even the most basic seems to alude me. I downloaded the ISO file but don't have a seperate partition to extract it to .... getting confused on how I should go about this from the tutorials. Here's how my HDD is setup currently:

Also, how big would the partition need to be for the iso file? It's a 3GB file but extracted would be ... ?

it will dig around in the registry for you and better try the paid for trial it is really good and you have it for a month you might even like to buy it LOL!!.

I have dabbled in the registry for very obstinate stuff like some Symantec (Norton) entries can be but you need to know what you are looking for.

Think I actually had it at one point, hopefully I can get a trail version again.

Can you help with the partitioning stuff in my previous post?

Shark if you haven't got it get the Partition Wizard is a very handy tool and I have just been using it to fix my HDD see what Golden recommends in post #327 for a muck up I did on my HDD a long time ago - still not fixed but better. SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition. very handy tool for heaps of other things.
