Windows 7: Fresh Install

Mitch is one of the brightest youngsters (at 14) we've helped here if he gets coaching instead of criticism. We had a marathon thread one night where he did advanced partitioning while bringing back new screenshots every 20 minutes.

Mitch, did you uninstall the Netgear software package you installed since you want to get rid of it? Next: Open Device Manager, choose Network Adapters, then Wireless adapter, then Driver tab, then Update driver, then browse to the driver on the CD or the latest Netgear software download which you extracted to the desktop. Let it pick up the driver and connect to network. Then go back online to Windows Updates and update the driver if it still offers it.

Your Disk Management picture looks perfect. Did you keep your User folders on the Backup partition and link them using the tutorial I posted?

If you still have a Dual Boot Menu, look in msconfig>Boot tab to remove the extra listing, or install EasyBCD 2.0 to delete it on the Edit OS tab.

What image are you referring to that failed? Any other problems?

Can you turn off the Netgear software so it isn't controlling your connection? Instead configure your network connection in bottom-right system tray.

To turn off the Netgear connection, first try rightclicking on it in System Tray to choose settings to turn it off there, otherwise open it and look for where you turn it off. Finally, try exiting it in System Tray then turning it off in msconfig>startup.

I understand why you want to get rid of it. I never let those things in the door.

Fresh install boots fine unless I install 2 specific HDDs
So I got these two 2tb HDDs awhile back, and installed them in my secondary machine for network backup. I recently decided to sell that machine, so I took those HDDs out, put my old 500gb HDD in, and installed them in my main machine. I have a MSI z97 PC Mate paired with a 4690k and a r9 290....

After Win7 Repair Install & Office 2007 fresh install; no permissions!
I had a run-in with MS Office 2007 that ended up (my bad I'm sure) necessitating a repair install of Windows 7 (64 bit) after a complete uninstall of Office. The Windows repair went well with the exception of a couple of drivers; easily adjusted. Then I did a clean install of Office 2007. It...
