I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi I am trying to fix a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop computer, that appears to have no physical issues, only software issues. I think that the OS has been somehow corrupted. I have researched this computer and it should have a way to Factory Restore it by clicking F8 while it is booting up, when you are in the "Advanced Boot Options", then you click "Repair My Computer" and it takes you to a screen where you need to choose a user and log in. Well the person I'm fixing this comp for gave me her log in or what she remembers it to be, but I have tried it over and over, and it isn't working. She hasn't used the comp in a few years since it became corrupted, and I think she must have remembered the password wrong. Anyway, long story short, I need a way to either to hack or crack or reset the password so that I can "Factory Restore" the computer, or at least try to "Factory Restore" it. I spent most of yesterday trying different options from the internet and was so far unsuccessful.

Things I've tried so far:

Puppy Linus Lucid 5.2.8.7, as well as Puppy Linux slacko as live CDs to get to the "chntpw", but it was not available on those versions.

"Ophcrack" but that didn't work.

Live CD of chntpw, and that didn't work.

I'm wondering if there is a way I can add chntpw to my puppy linux live CDs, so that I can use it on them?

If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know, or if there is some other way that ... Read more

Greetings Tech Support Guy, The computer I wish to purchase has Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled, with a ticket to purchase an upgrade To Windows 7 Home Premium.
As I wish to use Windows 7 immediately (without bothering with Vista Home Premium) can you please advise, in detail, how I can delete Vista completely and install Windows 7 with minimum fuss.
All help greatly appreciated,

A:Replacing Vista Home Premium with Windows 7 Home Premium

When you get the Vista DVD, boot from it and choose Custom "advanced" installation. Then highlight the partition you want to put 7 on (preferably the Vista partition) then click "delete" (be careful which partition you choose) once the old Vista partition is deleted, be sure the new unallocated partition is highlighted and hit next to continue installing 7. Here is a screenshot, your partition structure may be slightly different.

Hey guys,

I want to upgrade my OS from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium and I have the Anytime upgrade DVD (provided at the time when I bought my laptop which came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium). Since this is the first time I will ever try to upgrade my OS and I will be paying for it (lol) I wanted to clear a few doubts before I went about it. My current OS is a Deutsch (German) version. I want my new OS to be in English. So my question is -

Will the upgrade process provide me with the option to choose an installation language?

I researched a bit about language packs and if I'm not very wrong, Multiple language packs work only for Business and Ultimate versions but not for Basic and Home premium. Third party language packs like Vistalizator has been reported to work fine but Microsoft doesn't recommend it and some users have reported to have problems where it pops the message " your windows is not genuine".

So should I do an upgrade or just do a clean install with an original Windows 7 Home Premium DVD?

A:Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade

Welcome
I am not sure about the answer regarding the language pack, but I am sure about the upgrade or the clean install. Do the clean install. A clean install is always preferred over an upgrade. With an upgrade all the old problems that may exist with the OS are just carried to the new installation.
Upgrades often fail, either because of third party software that is not compatible, or malicious software that breaks in the new install.
There are some members that back up their stuff and do a clean install on a regular basis to have the OS run smoothly as the first day. Trust me go with the clean install and enjoy your new OS

Hello Folks, Firstly i would like to appologize if i've post in wrong section or there's a similiar problem posted already, i already search for similiar question but didnt found any. I did some google search, also with no luck.

Here's my story.

I've purchased an Acer Laptop last year, it came shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium and i've been using this OS until now.

I really like this OS, this is the best OS i've ever tried but now i feel like upgrading to Windows 7 Professional x64.

So lets say if i have already purchased a copy of genuine Windows 7 Professional x64, how do i install it? Just insert the Installation Disc, and it shall prompt me with upgrade menu? Or Do i need to boot from CD-ROM and run installation from there?

Lets say if i can just run installation by inserting Installation Disc, and click "Upgrade To Windows 7 Professional", will it 'overwrite' my current documents/User Settings/Themes/Gadgets ?? These settings are important for me, i wish to keep them untouched if possible. This is question 1.

Question 2
What will happen to my previous Windows 7 Home Premium x64 licence if i decided to upgrade? When i bought this laptop, they dont give me any installation disc, so i cant re-install this OS.

Question 3
What will happen to my Ms Office 2010 licence ? As far as i know, once we activate the copy and register at Microsoft, which i already did, It cannot be activated twice.

Hi
Please advice on the performance comparison between
- Windows 7 Home Basic versus

assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM.

Just a hearsay...that Windows 7 Home Basic is lagging behind Windows 7 Home Premium in terms of performance assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM. Please confirm whether this is true or not.

By the way, how to activate the Windows Aero in Windows 7 Basic???

A:Performance comparison btw. Windows 7 Home Basic versus Home Premium

Hello cheesum and welcome to Seven Forums.

Last question first. This tutorial may help enable Aero. Please note that there is no way to enable transparency on Windows Home Basic.

Aero - Enable in Unsupported Editions of Windows 7

As far as performance, I have not been able to find any specific "speed" tests to say one way or the other.

Difference Between Windows 7 Home Basic and Home Premium | Difference Between | Windows 7 Home Basic vs Home Premium

But if Basic and Home Premium are run on two identical machines (not just identical RAM, but also identical hard drive/hard drive speed, identical CPU, identical programs and apps installed, etc) I would give a very slight performance advantage to Basic simply because it doesn't have the same amount of features that Home Premium has. Fewer features to load usually equals faster performance. But I think any performance advantage would be so slight it wouldn't make any appreciable difference.

I did find some comments comparing Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.

Of course, others may completely disagree with my thoughts and that's cool. Healthy discussion and debate is welcomed.

I have recently purchased a new Acer Aspire 5535 laptop. It has Windows Vista Home Premium (WVHP) installed.

The computer came with a number of programs that I am not interested in having on my system. In addition, I was not provided a restore disc. I do own a copy of Windows Vista Home Basic (WVHB).

I would like to keep WVHP as I appear to be eligible for an upgrade to Windows 7 . . . but I would like to reinstall to get rid of all these worthless programs. Can I use a WVHB disc with my new WVHP product key?

Could I install WVHB with the WVHB product key, then use the WVHP key supplied by Acer to upgrade?

Thanks for your time in answering my question. I hope it isn't unclear.

Hi, I've been having BSOD problems(I don't actually see a BSOD the power just goes off) ever since I upgraded from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium.

It occasionally happens during start-up or randomly(no specific program or website) at other times. It will also occasionally freeze and then I need to reboot.

I'm new at this and not tech savvy so hopefully I've included all relevant information. If not please be kind.

My System:

Original O/S: Vista(came pre-installed)

System hardware is about 4 to 5 years old
Age Of Windows 7: I upgraded to 7 about 3 months ago

No DMP included...

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.

As a result of what I think was a virus, accounts on my PC (running Windows XP Home) that were not set up to have passwords (including the Administrator account) all of a sudden appear to have passwords assigned to them and I can't sign in. Also, on the one account where I DID have a password, the password works and I can get in, but if I leave my PC and it automatically logs me out, I can't get back in using the password any more. I'm tempted to take the rather drastic measure of reinstalling XP, but would prefer to avoid that if I can. Anyone have thoughts on what I might be able to do to fix this?

Well to do this you would need two product keys. Since you can only use one key on one installed system, to dual boot two vista OS you would need a seperate product key for each one, if you have two keys all you need are two seperate partitions to install them on.

I was wondering --

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade when it was 1/2 price in July. I can also purchase Windows 7 Professional through the Ultimate Steal here in Canada.

I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer. I really don't want to do a clean install.

After I do an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium, can I use the key from Windows 7 Professional to upgrade to that version?

After that, can I then install Windows 7 Home Premium on a friend's computer, using the same key I had originally used on my computer, now that I'm not using Windows 7 Home Premium any more?

Thanks.

A:Upgrade Vista Home Premium --> 7 Home Premium --> 7 Pro

It appears the Upgrade keys are much more flexible than in the past, so it is worth a try at install. The worst is that you would have to use the key that came with the version.

No one I've read knows for sure whether an upgrade deactivates the underlying O.S. key, and MS's own Technet MVP's say it doesn't in case of reinstall need. It violates the EULA, of course, which says the upgraded OS replaces it except for reinstall.

Since upgrade keys are working in clean installs, you might want to try this providing your Vista Premium is retail so that you can migrate it to your friend:

1) Make an image of your Vista Premium install so it can be easily restored.

2) Try a clean formatted install booting from desired Win7 Upgrade version, which should take the key, or require the double "upgrade over upgrade" trick so the key is taken.

3) If this works, you can migrate your retail copy of Vista to your friend's computer, if not just use your backup image to restore it for in place Upgrade.

You will need to make a backup image of the finished job to avoid having to reinstall both OS in the future.

A:Upgrading from Vista Home Premium to 7 home premium?

If you no longer have a working recovery partition and no recovery disks, you may be forced to contact Toshiba and see if they will sell you recovery disks.

You could download an ISO of Windows 7 HP and install from that, but that would just give you a clean install, not return you to "original state".

You mean you log in as admin all the time? not very secure. they make admin password access limited for just this reason. Do you know about the built in (hidden) admin account?

Our problem is if it isn't your account (how do we know if it is) by telling you how to circumvent it we would be doing something illegal.

A:windows 7 home premium for HP x64

Hi: You can only transfer Microsoft retail software from one PC to another. The sticker on your old PC that fried itself is for an OEM operating system. Using an OEM product key on another PC is a violation of the Microsoft OEM licensing agreement. https://www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/pages/licensing_faq.aspx#fbid=q7CEbN2yHpJ Q. Can my customers transfer or sell their OEM software licenses?A. After an OEM software license has been installed on a PC, the license may not be installed on or transferred to another PC. However, the entire PC may be transferred to another end user along with the software license rights. When transferring the PC to the new end user, the software media, manuals (if applicable), and Certificate of Authenticity label must be included. It is also advisable to include the original purchase invoice or receipt. The original end user cannot keep any copies of the software. Q. My customer bought a new PC and wants to move the OEM software from the old PC to the new one. Can't users do whatever they want with their software?A. No, the OEM software is licensed with the computer system on which it was originally installed and is tied to that original machine. OEM licenses are single-use licenses that cannot be installed on more than one computer system, even if the original machine is no longer in use.

It then refreshes the page and returns me back to the logon page and if i press enter the same thing just keeps repeating itself. Other option on this page are the shutdown/sleep/restart option and a little box in the bottom left corner called ease of access with various options, but none that seem relevant to the situation.

If I currently live in Korea, meaning I cannot utilize the Upgrade at Anytime feature...Can I purchase the Ultimate English Edition and upgrade my Windows 7 Home Premium K edition without any problems? Or do I need to purchase the Ultimate K edition and add the English MUI?
 

A:Windows 7 Home Premium K

Some display languages are installed by default, and others require you to install additional language files. When you change the display language, it is changed for your user account and is not changed on the Welcome screen.

Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
You should be able to install the English Mui if it is not installed already. You should be able to do this without having to reinstall windows.

Let me know if this helps.

hey

i got windows vista as my original OS but i brought the windows 7 home premium 32 bit because i wanted to use windows 7 and so i upgrade to windows 7. i have no problem using windows 7 for like 1 year but when i boot my windows 7 the next day, it starts to lag badly and so i have to reformat again and i did it 3 times and it is still lagging badly, taskbar lagging when i click it and sometimes even i have to force shut down my computer because the program lagg. i do not want to reformat again. All my drivers are up to date and windows update all done. All anti-virus/spyware/malware program are on with high priority/alert. Done sfc/scannow and do not find any violations. I think there is something that make my computer lagg so badly and i do not know what is it.

First you must fill out your system specs here.
Then check at taskmanager which process that consume high cpu/memory resource?
(post the screenshot of taskmanager while lagging)

Hi,

Can i Use the Windows 7 Home premium Key to activate the windows 7 Professional or Ultimate ?

If not Possible is there any solution to install the complete version of Windows 7 Home Professional or Ultimate.

A:Windows 7 Home Premium Key

Hi ranga545 and WELCOME to Seven Forums! =)
Sadly you cannot use it to activate Ultimate or Professional even if it is a Retail Key, you can however upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate or Proffessional through "Windows Anytime Upgrade"

I have a DELL Home Premium Disc with a COA. I also have an ASUS laptop with no disc, but the COA. Can I use the DELL disc with the ASUS COA to install on the ASUS laptop? Legally. I mean I did it and it worked, but I just want to make sure.

A:OEM Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Almost certainly it's not legal, not so much because of Windows, but the other bundled software is not licensed to run on anything other than a Dell.
Tou should order a set of Recovery disks for the Asus from their website.

If the G560 is preloaded with Win7 Home Premium and you have the COA sticker then you can create a recovery disc to reinstall Windows.

I just got another new computer and it has Vista Home Premium 64 bit on it, being new to Vista I have a few questions. In Programs there are 2 IE explorers, plain and 64 bit. I understand the plain is 32 bit. Can you switch back and forth between them? In program files there are to Program files Plain and x86. Is the plain 64 bit and the x86 32 bit? When Windows Home Premium 64 bit comes new installed what does it default to, 32 bit or 64 bit?
__________________

A:Windows Home Premium 64 bit

The reasoning behind the two different Internet Explorers is that Flash players aren't set up to work for 64 bit (x64) systems yet. So there is the 64 bit version, and the 32 bit (x86) version so you aren't completely stuck when you get to a website that requires flash animations. To be safe, so far I have just been using the 32 bit version.

The Program Files folders are separated between the two as well. Programs that are originally 32 bit (x86) will go in the x86 folder. If the program is a 64 bit (x64) it will go into the "Plain" one. Its not that there is a default...your computer will pull from both, depending on what type of program you are trying to run.

VAIO Care application has stopped working correctly.
When I get to the 'Care Screen', if I try to click on any help question, a message appears: 'VAIOShell has stopped working' However, on Task Manager it states VAIOShell running & VAIO Care not responding!!
I am aware others have had similar problems, but solutions I Have seen posted, eg Uninstall/Reinstall VAIO Care does not solve the problem.
Has anyone found another solution that may work? If so, your help would be appreciated.
