With that Product Key you can clean reinstall using a borrowed Win7 DVD of any version, since all versions can be unlocked by extracting the ISO to run the ei.cfg removal tool below, then burn an all-versions DVD to install your licensed version with Key. http://lifehacker.com/5438005/eicfg-...windows-7-disc

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via Optional Windows Updates. Any missing drivers can then be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model.

Do yourself a favor and install Microsoft Security Essentials, the experts choice for free lightweight anti-virus and spyware protection. It installs in 30 seconds and then pretty much becomes invisible unless you encounter a threat.

Stick around and read up some more until you locate a Win7 installer and feel you are ready to clean reinstall.

Hi,gregrocker.MSE is what I have.I tried Zone Alarm-really didn't fare well with my system.It locked folders and files so that I couldn't use System Restore,among other things.After trying a couple other vendors,I ran across MSE and everything is smooth sailing.I honestly think it is a better product than what I have tried in the way of free and paid programs.MSE works seamlessly with my OS and uses very little resourses.I'm extremely happy with it.
I would honestly prefer to use all MS components,yet I know that that may not be feasable.

Thanks for the encouragement.I'm not going to give-up.I am as I type this trying to download a legitamate copy of ISO.We'll see.What do I have to lose?I get a little aggravated sometimes,then I have to remind myself that this is a logic based problem.Emotions can only be detrimental in this situation.

Thanks again,Bro.You guys haven't heard the last of me.

Much Love To All.PEACE.

Revisited

Pardon me.

If my laptop runs both 32-bit and 64-bit interchangably,must I have both .iso's?Or will 64-bit run all apps?I know I have to run 32-bit explorer to access some java apps.

Is there a tutorial I've missed?

Or am I confusing IE 32-bit and 64-bit with W7?
