Windows 7: i can't delete a folder in windows 7?

Calm down.

If you got a prompt offering the choices you mention then the installer was run from within Windows and not booted. It would not offer to check Compatibility online from boot. It was in Windows.

What is the make and model of your PC? Do you know the key to tap at boot to bring up a one-time BIOS Boot menu to choose to boot DVD? What happens when you tap repeatedly that key at boot? Are you getting the prompt to "Press any key to boot disk?" What happens then exactly?

I'm sorry to posting too late just busy with college stuff, Anyway i guess you are right about the Check Compatibility but it didn't show my any "Press any key to boot the CD or DVD" and it didn't start from Boot and that's why i try this way.

So i read this page Clean Install Windows 7 again & i find that in some PC you have to click any key right before window start and it did start from boot it say Window loading files.

After Window loading files This

It was working fine but it stuck here about 2/3 then it restart the window that happen 5 times so i give up.

I try today again and find the problem it was when the window starts it ask me to "Press any key to boot the CD or DVD" but i didn't press any key this time and it took to this so i got my Window 7 Pro back


Oops i forget you ask me about the make of my PC, it's Lenovo business & gaming loptop. I'm sorry i am new to PC world & i barley use my PC. You guys are awesome helping so many people around the world.

God Bless.

Are all of your Important and Optional Updates done, all Drivers installed in Device Manager?

Check the logs for repeat errors, utilize the System Resources in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Yes, all of Important and Optional Updates done as well Drivers installed in Device Manager. But i check the window log under Administrative Events and i got 71 error & warning message.

So what's the easiest way to solve these errors? i already download the Malwarebytes & Microsoft Security Essentials and run full scan already in both.

It explains how to deal with repeat errors in the tutorial.

Also explained in the tutorial is how to utilize the System Resources to Check for Problem Solutions and Generate a System Health Report.

No, the tutorial shows you how to deal with repeat errors by googling their text to see how others have resolved them. This is how you learn to troubleshoot. We are volunteers who mostly do not have time to do the work for you.
