Where is that other tab to remove hibernate files and system restore points? I can also uninstall programs, right?

Yes, you can uninstall programs, just make sure if it is something you need special information to access, like mostly paid stuff (keys, and serial #s, etc) Like with the a/v we did the other day. Since I don't know what you have I cant really say. But The hibernation file should be about the same size as the memory recognized by windows, which is 4GB?? I believe. So thats a big chunk of it, assuming it's not already deactivated. Here's how to remove the hyberfil.sys file: How to Enable or Disable Hibernate in Windows 7 Use option #2

Then Download & Run: WinDirStat This will show what is the quickest way to free up some space. Then upload a screen shot of the window after you run it.

Well then forget the last step then...

Thats probably enough space, but go into Windows Update and (type "update" into the start menu and press enter) then click Change Settings at the left and when the Change Settings window opens - Look under Important Updates there's a combo-box that SHOULD say something like "Install Updates automatically" Click it and select the last option "Never Check for Updates" then click OK at the bottom

I would try to uninstall a few bigger applications at this point,

Your F drive is available for downloading to correct? I'll look back a page or so from when you posted the disk management to make sure it's not full or partitioned too small, because well use that for the download, and the Download and DVD should have enough space to buffer on the C drive now.

Oops, it was E: but it looks like it has almost 350 GB of free space available. So there should be no problems.

You wil need several blank DVDs and your flash drive to complete this. The flash drive is optional, but I know you have already used it for some previous steps, and it can be used further, if you have enough space available on it.


If you have a Installation disc for Avira, you can use this to reinstall later, although it would be my advice to download the latest version of your application directly from Avira's website you may have to look around for it, but if you can find it and copy it to a disc or a flash drive, it will be best. There's no need to risk going on the Internet trying to locate what you need without anti-virus protection active later. This also applies to the Activation Code you mentioned, which I think you said it was saved in the original email. Print it out or write it down carefully, keeping in mind it may be case-sensitive.


Make sure your Product Key is legible. This will be located on the COA label on the bottom of your laptop. It should follow the form: XXXXX - XXXXX - XXXXX - XXXXX - XXXXX. You will need it to reactivate windows, and they can become difficult to read over time, especially on a laptop. You may want to write it down so you don't have to keep flipping you laptop back-and-forth, or if it's starting to wear off. This is the one I mentioned earlier in my PM. I don't need it, you will.


There should also be some text on the COA label describing your specific windows license version (ie. Win7 x64 OEM - or similar), please send me a copy of that line. (sorry no screen caps usable with this one! :))

Ok. Its 1am here and I don't have any blank DVDs. I will post when I get all these steps taken care of, should be 12-18 hours from now. Thanks for all the help thus far.
