Windows 7: formatting window 7 without installation CD

When exactly does this pop up? What are you doing at the time that may trigger it?

It appears to be a popup with IE9 beta. Did you specially install this? What about if you reinstall IE8 as this might be a bug.

Do you have the programs to reinstall if you clean reinstall?

Here are steps to get a purrfect reinstall: re-install windows 7

It pop us every few seconds and its randomly associate to certain key of keybaord. For example first time it will pop up when i press A and when i close the window then it will pop up again if press A and if i close the pop window through Task Manager then it will pop up again and will asscoiate to different key on keyboard.

I need to double check if it is really something to do with keyboard and i would also test it without connecting to Internet and see if it still pops up.

I am using IE-7.

The clean install was done through "Boot up from recovery disk(something like that)" option on my pc which comes on when i restart my pc and i get option of F1 and F12.

You should have IE8 by now from Windows Update. Are your Windows Updates current? This is important as the Security Updates fortify your firewall, and optional Updates contain your latest drivers. I would choose them all as any not needed ultimately will be rejected.

If you don't receive IE8 from Updates, then google for it's standalone installer and install it now to see if the popup goes away.

Hi,

I have double checked and i am using IE-8 not 7.

I think pop ups only appears when i connect to internet but i am not 100% sure.

I don't know if there is a way of fixing this issue unless i format the hard disk and install the OS from scratch.

Can i make a dvd(reinstall disk) of window 7 which is installed on my pc? and would i able to reinstall the OS through that dvd after formatting the hard disk?

If you can find an exact Windows version that the PC shipped with you can do a clean install using the activation key on the COA sticker attached to the PC though it may require a robo-call to MS to sort the OEM batch-key.

If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all Versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Though if there's nothing on the PC you need to save, I'd do a complete wipe (secure erase) of the entire Hard Disk Drive first.
