It looks good to me but I have asked for a expert to take a look. Shouldn't be long.

Well let me tell my sordid tale....

I had a windows update the other day and afterward IE10 did not work right and my icons were all on default.

It was a two year or so run on that install and I'm sure the registry had bloated up. So I decided to reinstall windows.

Not thinking clearly I ran the OEM recovery CD. It installed OK except it did not take the product key on the machine. I had forgot I had upgraded to Win 7 Pro.

So I installed the Win 7 and it took off. A few hundred updates and here I am.

I'm really not worried about the backup as it is the system restore I want the most.

Hello Red Raspberry, welcome to SevenForums!

Where did you purchase your Windows 7 license? The key in use is from a MSDN subscription and has very strict usage restrictions.
