How to uninstall windows 7


Step 1:
Delete Windows 7 b> Released in October 2009, Windows 7 is the most recent Microsoft Operating system (as of September 2010). It offers several advances over previous versions of windows, including improved media functions and networking. Windows 7 is not for everyone, however, and there are instances in which someone may wish to remove Windows 7 in favor of an earlier version. There are three ways to delete Windows 7, and the method you use depends on how it was originally installed.

b>Back up the data on your computer. Go to the Windows Start Menu. Select "Computer" and right-click on the "C" drive. Left-click on "Properties" and write down the amount of free space on your drive. Close out of the "C" drive properties and go to the Windows Start Menu. Type "Windows.old" in the "Search Programs and Files" box. If the "Windows.old" folder does not exist, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click the Windows.old folder, left-click on "Properties" and look at the of the folder. Compare the of the folder with the amount of free space on your drive you wrote down in Step 2. The Windows.old folder contains compressed files; if the folder is more than two times the of the amount of free space on your drive, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." For example: If you only have 10GB of free space on your C drive and the Windows.old file is 22GB large, when it expands it may use up the remaining 10GB and then some. Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and reboot your machine. Select the option to boot from CD/DVD when prompted. Set the language, time and location-specific settings and click "Next." Select "Repair Your Computer" from the list of installation options. Select your version of Windows 7 and click "Next." Click "Command Prompt" to open the command prompt window. Type the following commands, and hit the "Enter" key after each: C: Md Win7 Move Windows Win7\Windows Move "Program Files" "Win7\Program Files" Move Users Win7\Users Attrib --h --s --r ProgramData Move ProgramData Win7\ProgramData Rd "Documents and Settings" Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each: move /y c:\Windows.old\Windows c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Program Files" c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\ProgramData c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\Users c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Documents and Settings" c Restore the boot sector for the earlier version of Windows with one of the following commands: For Vista, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt52 c: For Windows XP or Windows 2000, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt60 c: Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each command: Attrib --h --s --r boot.ini.saved Copy boot.ini.saved boot.ini Close the Command Prompt window and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 From a Multi-Boot System Boot your computer to the Non-Windows 7 Operating system and back up your data. Go to the Windows Start Menu, select "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Select "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management." Enter your Administrator Password if prompted. Click "Storage" on the left and select "Disk Management." Locate the drive or partition that is running the Windows 7 operating system. If you have both operating systems on the same partition, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click on the Windows 7 partition, click "Format" or "Delete" to remove Windows 7 from that partition. Click "OK" and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System Back up the data on your hard drive and insert the desired Windows installation disk, such as Windows Vista or Windows XP. Reboot your machine and select the option to boot from CD/DVD. Press "Enter" to start the installation process. Hit F8 to agree to the "Microsoft Software License Terms" and select the option to install a new version of the software. Select the C: drive and highlight the option to format and partition the drive. Press the "Enter" key. Follow the on-screen prompts to install Windows. The computer may reboot several times during the installation process. Enter your product key when prompted.

When my PC (PB iXtreme i7151B with Windows 7)goes on power save (asleep) when it is left alone for a while, it doesn't restore the desktop anymore when I get back on it. Only the background shows, and I...


i have reviewed your issue and read several articals in regards to this issue and it looks like it is common. I found one site that seemed to have the most details options and step by step instructions for different possibilities follow this link: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html
But prior to going into anything to technical, to me it sounds like it might be a software glitch with the operating system. In which case I would start by trying a system restore to a prior date when you know this issue was not happening.
System restore instructions are below:
Here's How:
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use.
    Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Compaq Presario V2000 PC Notebook: computer is slow...


try the following

1. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type temp and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

2. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type %temp% and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

3. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type prefetch and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

4. You can also Uninstall apps that you don't use anymore. This can be done by going into the control panel and select Add/Remove Prorams. Scroll through and delete apps you no longer use. 5. Restart the machine.

I am sure that this would resolve the issue. In case it does not try this

click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type prefetch and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select the tab Startup, and click the button Disable all. Click apply and then OK and restart your coputer.

This should help. in case not click start -> Accessiories -> system tools -> Disk Defagment

In case that also does not works, scan your computer for some viruses.
You may also look at the option of increasing the RAM / Memory on your computer
This should help

I need to Uninstall MSIE 8.0and install MSIE 7.0 or6.0 how do I do this?


go to remove programs and install the previous IE
Or go to my computer, run, type regedit and hit enter
Now look for H_KEY_LOCAL_USER
Find the + Software and expand it. Look for IE , right click on it and delete it.

Do the same with H_KEY_LOCAL_USER

You can also go to start menu, search, Find IE, right click and delete

Usually just installing IE8 will replace the old one with no deletion necessary
