Windows 7: Windows 7 weird desktop, no internet

13 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits

Uhm, i just wanted to do a repair install. Only i upgraded my windows vista to windows 7. Now i got 2 cd's and both cd's dont work automatically. So i dont see 'run.exe'. But on my desktop is also 'Upgrade Wizard' to Windows 7. Could i just use that for Repair install?

best thing you could do now is make a system image and store it on an external hdd or on a separate partition in your hdd. It's a lot quicker to restore your system from a backup image than to do a repair install if or when something else like that happens.

I bought a new Sony Vaio SR a couple of days ago and just received it today, everything is great except for an extremely obnoxious bar on the desktop, and I have no idea if it's something installed by Sony, or if it's a Windows 7 thing. I would just like it to be gone. You can't right click it...
