64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello Titi,

Is the Windows 7 on your computer one that came preinstalled, or is it a retail copy of Windows 7 that you installed?

If it's a preinstalled Windows 7, then what brand is your computer, and is it a laptop or desktop?

If it's one that you installed, then doing a clean install will wipe the computer clean and put a fresh installation of Windows 7 on it.

Hope this helps for now,

I just got a new, ASUS Altec A53U laptop and need to reset the computer login password. In order to do so, it's asking me for a disc with a "Reset Wizard" on it, which did not come w/the laptop. Any ideas on how I can do this? Can't use the computer, otherwise!:cry:
