Windows 7: windows explorer has stopped working

Not to be picky, however, one does not copy an ISO onto either a DVD or USB device; a process used by PowerISO or anything similar must be used.

Hi Roland,

Any advice is good, so you're not picky . I was wondering already if I could treat this iso-file the same way as my normal data files.

I just downloaded and installed the 64bit version of PowerISO (unregistered copy) from here:
PowerISO - Create, Burn, Mount, Edit, Compress, Encrypt, Split, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter, Virtual Drive, DAA File

I not sure how to use this program to get my (now fully downloaded) iso to my usb.

It seems that the unregistered (unpaid) version is no good for what I want:

"What's the difference between the unregistered version and the registered version?
A: The unregistered version will display a dialog prompts you to register, and you can not create or edit image files greater than 300MB with the unregistered version. Except these, all other functions or features are the same."

My iso is 3.09GB...

Any suggestions?

I'm at school, cannot give you a step by step at this time; await others who can post a quick-list.

There are some free versions of ISO-burners out there...I and others will try to post a few suggestions in here.

Hello Judith now I see Roy beat me to it with that excellent tutorial it has just about everything in it.

Now another program you can use and is free to make the bootable disk or stick is this The Official ImgBurn Website

Just so you know when you do burn the disk or stick make sure you pick the slowest rate of burn as a fast burn may not give as good a quality disk/stick. For an example $x is reasonably good and I always pick (if the porgram lets me) an even slower speed.

If you are having problems a very simple and easy way to create a Bootable Windows 7 USB Installer is by using Unetbootin v494

UNetbootin - Browse /UNetbootin/494 at SourceForge.net

You'd need unetbootin-windows-494.exe

It's an old version of Unetbootin that still works. Newer versions cannot create a Bootable Windows 7 USB Installer as the functionality has been removed.

Instructions here:

Choose ISO and Drive letter.

Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup (KB3125574)

There may be a large number of updates required after a clean install.

I'm not sure if the clean install tutorial has been updated to include the "Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup" (KB3125574).
This rollup updated the OS to April 2016 (it should speed up the reinstall process considerably).

There was a prerequisite update (KB3020369) for the "Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup" (KB3125574).
The prerequisite update must be installed first.
Here is a link to the info that I used last year:
How to Update Windows 7 All at Once with Microsoft’s Convenience Rollup

When checking for updates you may also experience the ridiculously slow Windows Update issue.

I think that "July 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1" (KB3172605) finally fixed the issue.
Here is a link about that:
Checking for updates slow on Windows 7? Here is the fix - gHacks Tech News


Aside:
Has anyone tried the "adding updates to the W7 image" procedure listed at the end of that article?

Thank you Icit2lol, Callender and Lehnerus.

I've downloaded Unetbootin as it seemed the most simple (especially with the walkthrough).

Lehnerus, for the moment I just want to limit myself to A) reinstalling Windows 7 from this iso and B) establishing an internet connection. Everything here is new to me. Lots of info which in most cases is like talk from outer space to me, so I'm scared to make a mistake or forget something. I'm just a simple user, never had to deal with stuff like this. So I don't want to drown in information which can only lead to not doing correctly the essential things for steps A) and B).

If these updates can be done after A) and B), I'd rather deal with them at that time. And also, I don't mind if it takes long, I just want it to be right. But it's nice to know a quick rollup exists. So thanks for the tip.

Sometimes it's urgent to slow down...

So let's see if I can get this iso to this stick the way it should...

Hi everyone,

I just copied the iso to the flash drive using unetbootin-windows-494.exe, as suggested by Callender. At completion it gave me the option to boot or to exit. I exited the program and I got a message from the Program Compatibility Assistant saying that "this program might not have installed correctly".

So now I am a bit worried if my iso got correctly copied to my stick.
Can I check this or is it saver to try the operation another way with another program?
