Windows 7: Can't install Windows 7 USB DVD tool

31 Jul 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

Ok, with that being said, I just logged in using my wife's account (also an admin) and tried to run an elevated command prompt and IT WORKED!! I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner! Anyway, would you still recommend doing a clean install? I agree it may be better in the end since I am having so many issues.

In the end, it would still be better to do a clean install, but at least you will be able to do so when you like since you have an account that works.

If you like, you could also create a new administrator account for yourself while logged in your wife's account, then delete your old account after copying any files and shortcuts from it to the new account first. If it doesn't solve all issues you had in your old account, then at least this will buy you more time until you're ready to do a clean install.
