Windows 7: deleted Vista files in Windows 7

23 Jun 2011   #31

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Seavixen32, I really don't think Microsoft or Dell will give anything away for "free." I figure I'm gonna have to spring for it. Not the end of the world. But not pleasant either.
Theog, unfortunately my machine is past the 12 month period so no free DVD for me.
Peace all............
