Yes mate I agree with Jack a clean install is just about the most foolproof way of getting things back to normal.

Now I would say just one thing though and that is when I do a clean install I always make sure the drive is cleaned or wiped with DISKPART or Partition Wizard so that I am fairly sure nothing from the original install is left behind.

Now I have to add that that is me being a little pedantic but from past experience I find this the only thing to do with the drive first after finding a straight format sometimes leaves remnants of the previous install which can cause issues with the clean install. Mind you a new drive circumvents having to clean the drive first and it would certainly give you the opportunity to install on a SSD as well. But it is your budget and choice of course.

Ok I Thought that since I was going to wipe 7 I would experiment I D/Led PStools and run as system and a hand full of reg cleaners, I opened PSTools and run as system program and used it to open and run the cleaners and also took 4-5 different cleaners and it WORKED !!! I am happy camper it did take all night but I got it done ... man I was worried that I'd have to talk to MS about the reinstall, but I think the main program that helped the most was "RUN AS SYSTEM"
So maybe someone will need help getting rid of program or reg entries and try D/Ling RUN AS SYSTEM see if it helps them out.
So now I will try and do a backup of Win7 and Win10 with an EXT drive I have and I hope I can get them separately so if I need to restore I only have to do one or the other !!!

Hi Vtails,

Good to here,
Just had a thought about MWB, did you have the trial installed, ie real time protection.
If yes then you would have had to turn off self protection before un-installing.

Ok well glad it is all good so far and it is good that you used that software as personally I am not a fan of those that promise all sorts of wonder cures - snake oil fixes as someone once described them as.

Good luck with the reinstall and you might be just as well to try and do that using an image see this it might be of use to you
Imaging with free Macrium the only thing is I don't know how you will go with that ?dual boot.

The good thing is I don't have to reinstall, I got that info and help at Bleeping computers,they dont like people starting over I had to submit all the log files and they gave me solution so I'm happy that don't have to go install again. I know it sounds like snake oil but it worked. I had paid version 3.0 and after back and forth they gave me back my money and also told me I was the ONLY ONE that ever had a problem with mwb ! Ever.
I'm curious as to why these 2 programs are called snake oil I don't want to crash and burn after spending time a lot of it to get things working again. ?

No mate I think I may have worded my post a little better the program you used is fine - I meant some of the rubbish that goes around promising wonder cures for reg fixes, finding drivers etc etc.

I am a fan of Bleeping Computer in any case it is a really good site as I am this one Gizmo's Freeware I use them all the time for finding free AV's for example which I try out on my tester desktop

I was worried that my Hours of work would end up crashing. Now I need to see if I can get a backup of win 7 , I have ext. 320 gig drive, I'm going to split it in half and see if I can get a backup on one and then do win 10 on the other, sounds simple but it Never works out that way.
I'm glad to here bleeping sites OK I've used them long time back. I'm starting to find out that it takes multiple sites anymore to get some problems fixed. I guess it's time to jump over to the Win 10 site here and see if I can get it reliable .
