dont know how to restart download

I downloaded windows7 from the online store. The entire thing was downloaded and unboxed. before the acutual installation i restared my computer because of the few programs that needed to be deleted because of compatability. Now I do not know how to start the installation process. How do i begin the intallation again?

Not very computer savy

reason i restarted computer:
The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.
  • Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing.

You need to find the windows 7 install files download. Do you remember where you downloaded it? Type 7600 (which is in it's title) into the start box and have it search everywhere if you forget.

When you locate the files, open the folder and double click on Setup to start the installer.

This is providing the files are already unzipped. If it is an ISO then you need to use 7zip, Winrar, PowerISO or another unzipping utliity to open the files and put them out where you can run them. You should also seriously consider burning to a disk if it is an ISO, as there are Repair options on the installer you might need if you ever can't boot.

Always back up your files before doing an Upgrade or install like this.
