Allthough i could prob now go with 64 now i have quad core, SSD etc..I'm not sure if i want to since i *only* have 4gigs and 64 seems to love taking up RAM, i didn't notice any perfomance benifits either.
If the RAM is there, it might as well be used right?

You really won't notice any performance benefits untill you start getting into the 6gb of RAM area.
that's what i mean, until i use another 2GB stick, i will be sticking with 32bit, from my experience and others, its faster and i'm yet to see the benifits of a 64bit win7 on a 4GB system. Sure it free's up 500mb of RAM but then it uses more RAM anyway. I'm not going to worry about loosing 500mb RAM really, even when gaming i don't go past the 3GB mark.

OK

Thanks NoN I did install MSE yesterday for him as he had nothing except the Defender (and no firewall running) on the machine.

I laso just downloaded MBAM too and both have come up with no hits - just wondering what to try next?

I am not that savvy but it looks like a complete format job if there is nothing else and yes they didn't give him the OEM disk either.

Could be wise and easier if you've got nothing to loose...Was looking around but most is for Vista x64...just too new for a Windows 7.

Backup your stuff, then.

You should be able to create your own restore disk if you're on Laptop or OEM desktop. (see also the mfg's recovery partition manual and keyboard key to access it on boot)

Either, i do not think you'll regret it that much after!

PS: you can download the stand alone.exe....:

But you might go in troubleshoot if not fixed.

Thanks again

Thanks again NoN I'll get onto him and ask him what he wants to do about it.

Trouble is the poor bugga doesn't have a lot of disposable income and can't afford the techs to do it but I have got a spare ext HDD here he can have - my only concern is that if I back the machine up won't the malware go with it??

It might! That's why you should better format then clean install his laptop. Or if the SP1 stand-alone.exe works, you're gonna have sometime after to find a solution.

This link is the same explanation tip of the other link i gave you, but is a MS Official for Vista tip (could give it a try?):

Ok NoN now presents a problem now as he doesn't have the OEM or upgrade disk or details of them so looks like getting a completely new OEM, which is a pain not doing it just the cost to this poor bloke.

Jeez there ought to be death penalty for these sods - bloody pondlives

But mate thanks so much for your help I am really appreciative.

If he bought the laptop Oem pre-installed , he should have a hidden restore partition somewhere...go in disk management to check whenever it does exist one hidden partition:

ButtonStart=> Run=> (type) diskmgmt.msc =>Ok

If so, there a software on his machine able to create restore disc in the start menu or a key on keyboard to access to the restore menu (F8 or F10 or F12)

He can create a restore disc in Backup and restore. It's there on the left panel Create a system repair disc.
