The solution in this thread pertains to the HP preinstall which is an inherently corrupt install to begin with, larded with sponsored bloatware and useless duplicate utilities which have much better versions built into Win7. This huge load of crapware throttles Win7 native performance, which is why most tech enthusiasts won't even consider running it but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
