Windows 7: Help changing boot order in Intel BIOS

If installed on the hard disk, Partition Wizard would typically be installed in C:\Program Files, just like any other program.

But its a pretty good idea to download the boot disk version of it. That's an ISO file. Then you burn that ISO file to a CD. You can then boot your PC from that CD and run Partition Wizard, just as if it were installed on your C drive.

The "regular" version to install on C is at the top of the list at the above link. The "bootable disk" version is at the bottom. They have the same functionality as far as I know.

Hi guys,
I posted the reply and I went to sleep. I was verry tired. I just saw your reaction. Sorry!
I downloaded the "bootable disk" version and burned it to a CD luckily.
Right now I am at another stage. My AVG antivirus free edition just expired.
I want to get rid off it so I can install Microsoft Security Essential.
I am studying Revo uninstaller (I saw Mr. WHS's video a couple of times)
I will go for it but right now it is time to hit the bed. I will keep you guys informed.
I might have more questions. I love this forum and of course you guys.

Revo is good, but for the AV programs you should use the AV uninstallers. Here is the one for AVG: AVG - Download tools

I assume you ask about the AVG uninstaller. That depends on the Windows7 you have - 64 or 32bit. It tells you in Computer Properties under "System".

This AVG download tools tells me that I should try the uninstall feature of the program it self and if it fails repeatedly than I can use this AVG remover from the AVG download tools as a last option.
My question is, will the uninstall feature of the program (AVG antivirus 10.0.1170) that I have right now completely wipe out every file out of the system Including out of the registry???
From what I read, the AVG remover will. Which one do you recommend.
One more thing, is this AVG remover a program? How do I remove this one afterwards? May be with Revo uninstaller? Don't laugh!

If it fails and recommends to use the uninstaller that is on the system, then I recommend to use Revo (but use the advanced (4th) option - you'll see. Revo will first apply the the AVG uninstaller that is on your system and then it will give you the option to remove any leftover files and registry entries.

I myself never dealt with AVG because it is not up to the standards I expect from an AV program. That's why I do not know more details about this particular remover.
