Windows 7: Removing Linux and Grub/Installing Windows 7 on Netbook

Reed and Ray,
Congratulations on getting up and running.
Since I have no experience with your netbook, my first suggestion is to go to their website and see what they have to say.

If and only if that fails, then:
The easy solution is to roll back to an old restore point, which you should have if you didn't delete them.

If and only if that fails, then we'll go thru more complex gyrations.


Here's the link to restore:
System Restore

For the future, here's the link to create a restore point:

I agree with Karl that your best approach to the touchpad installer startup loop is to System Restore to before you installed it the first time, then reinstall.

I personally uncheck touchpad in msconfig>startup because I find the scrollbar too distracting to enjoy even the tap click function. It's likely the installer .exe is lodged in msconfig>Startup now, too, so you can check there first or just SysRestore to do it over again.

So after installing and re-installing and trying the restore program I finally realized that I just needed to unblock the two .exe files that kept coming up. I also found the software to make my keyboard volume and brightness controls on the Samsung site like you guys suggested. Finally up and running and loving the new OS without any annoyances. Thanks.
