That wouldn't be the same, but that's ok. You should be fine to do the steps exactly to remove the new Windows 7 without issue. :)

I would recommend to create a system repair disc first just to be safe in case you may have to do a startup repair.

Here is my C: aswell because it is also abnormally full. Much fuller than when I gave it to him.

Where did you get your copy of Windows 7 from, and what did you use to install it with?

The Windows 7 Activador.exe folder on both C: and D: indicates that you have a illegal torrent copy of Windows 7 installed.

Are yoy serious? I took it to a franchised computer store here and I bought all my software instore, then their IT guys took it to the workshop and installed it there. It would explain why I can't get hold of the guy to fix my pc but you'd think better from a store... I have my cd and cover with the official seal with keys and numbers...

I would recommend to take it back to that store along with your receipts and ask them what's up with that. If you Google Windows 7 Activador.exe, it comes back with nothing but illegal torrents.

In this case, I would recommend that you backup anything that you do not want to lose, format the computer, and do a clean install of Windows 7 with your legal installation disc. You do not want to have an illegal copy installed with who knows what else with it. For example, malware.

Let me guess, the stores' name is the same as a popular Sci-Fi movie starting with M.... They did the same to me a while back. Can't believe they still rip people off like that.
