Formating Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hello guys,

I'm getting tired of this slowness and I want to wipe everything in my computer and start a new again. How can I wipe everything without using CD/Burning a disc from some website that will download crack OS. Because I just wanna format everything like reintalling it. Is there any way that I can do without using Disc/CD?

Please help asap.

Your specs say 2gb of ram, with only 2gb x64 will be slow.

What DVD/USB did you use to install Windows 7?

To clean install:
1) Clean the HD Drive, using Step one in this tutorial:
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
2a) clean install with the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk.
2b) Clean Install Windows 7
2c) UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with

For USB:
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

No, at the beginning like for first 3 months it's running very smoothly. But now it booting up for 10 minutes instead of 2 minutes. Now it's 1 year.

Also, let me try that USB thinggy. Thanks for posting so quickly though.

Edit : Nah, It won't help. I don't have enough money to buy 8 GB Usb and also I don't know how to burn disc as I just play games on my computer. I usually play NBA 2k12 with 20 FPS so it doesn't lag too much (For me it's running smoothly too). I just wanna know if there is a program that will erase everything except the OS system/files?

Follow these same steps for a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I would also use 32 bit if you only have 2gb RAM for better performance. Pay close attention to how drivers are handled in Win7. You'll need a new DVD to burn the 32 bit ISO for your licensed version from Step 1 above, using the tool in Step 2.
