Preferred Solution: mcafee free suabscription be gone forever if install window 7 from window vista?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Then the unthinkable ... all my pictures, all my documents, all the restore points, ALL anything that I added to this hard drive for the last 4yrs.... IS GONE!!! and now nothing is saved after I reboot.( ok Im in safe mode) I have reloaded the service pack 2... found out some drivers can not update. I looked at the event manager ...

Hiya, all

I am a satisfied Windows 7 Pro user on six machines (five laptops and one desktop) all of them home machines. I have no desire to ever experience Windows 8, 10, 27 or whatever. I want to stay on Windows 7. But things happen to machines, and sometimes they have to be replaced. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I might be able to stick to Win 7 through the coming years? MS has pulled their OEM licensing from sellers as of tomorrow, as I understand it. Can Win 7 be run without activation? Not legally, just functionally. There is no financial constraint, and I really want to keep this system. Any thoughts, constructive, unconstructive, positive, negative or antagonistic will be thankfully recieved.
P.S. On a previous solved thread, I tried to "rep" someone who helped and couldn't figure out how to do it.

A:Window 7 forever

Pulling their OEM licensing from sellers doesn't mean you won't be able to stick with Windows 7. Afterall the real end of support will not happen before 2020...Plenty of time!

Just check regularly incoming motherboard system specs but one can still install the now old XP on actual system, so...!!

Hi guys!

I have purchased a new PC with Vista installed.

I find it is not as fast as the XP. And I am running a Google Adwords Editor which is no vista version is available yet.

Therefore I would like to install XP into my PC and keep the Vista there.

How can I do that? Will the PC be stable if I partition the hard disk and install XP?

Do you have any experience and tips to share?

Cheers

Hi all. I have four pc's at home, two desktops and two notebooks. Suddenly, one of my notebooks takes forever to open IE. I'm running Verizon DSL and the notebook is a Lenovo ThinkPad Z60M, WinXP Pro. When I open a browser, it says at the bottom "detecting proxy settings." It sits like that for at least 10 seconds before opening my home page. Any ideas why this machine has to detect proxy settings and how I can make it do that faster? I know, I know, 10 seconds, gee, what a pity. I'm just used to instant browsing and the 10 seconds is very irritating.

None of my other systems takes more than 1 second to open my home page.

I saw the thread on clean installs with a upgrade disk but I'm still confused. I want to use a update disk to install a 64bit version of windows 7 from a 32bit bit version of Vista.

1) I have no extra hard drive
2) I have a Compaq F500 (laptop) with 1 gig of memory with a AMD64 Athlon x2 processor
3) I used the checker from Microsoft to see if I can it gave me a O.K.

So, can I do a clean install with a upgrade disk and how do I. I ask now in part because I don't know if any new updates from Microsoft would prevent this.

THX in advance.

A:Clean Install of Window 7 64bit from 32bit Vista

You'll have to boot the installer to clean install a different bit-version, however the installer should still detect Vista to allow use of Upgrade version key up front during install.

If not leave the key blank then after install do the quick registry workaround used to clean install Upgrade version to a clean HD: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Actually, i need some suggestion about Window 10.

Currently i am using Window 7 64 BIT and Ubuntu. Both are working nice. Now I'm thinking to install one more OS (Window 10 basically). I have heard somewhere that Window 10 Trial version is available.

So guys could you please tell me, first is it possible to install three operating system? Or if not, then how can i replace my window 7 with window 10.
I don't want to loose my data of window 7.

Thank you.

A:Is it possible to install three OS window,Linux and Window 10?

Windows 10 is just a beta, an unfinished preview version only, not the release version. MS warn clearly that it's not intended for production purposes yet.

Try it in a virtual machine on either OS. Or if you know what you're doing, try allocating one more partition for it, but don't replace Win7 with it.

Hello Rembo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you could install a fully licensed XP Mode to have XP running on a Windows Virtual Machine.

About the only disadvantage is that it may run a bit slower as a virtual machine versus a normal clean install or dual boot.

A:Installing Window Xp On Window Vista

Well, first we'll need to know the size of the C: and the D: drives, their names (such as Recovery or Restore) and how full they are.
Next, you'll need to ensure that you've got the DVD's necessary to reinstall Vista should you ever decide to go back to it (this'll save you a boatload of money).
Then, you'll need to have a copy of XP - you'll need a full, retail version to be fully able to install this (unless you've got an old copy of Win98, ME, or 2000 laying around to use with an upgrade. You'll also need copies of all the programs that you want to install.
You can get the drivers for your system at the Dell support site by entering your service tag number - but I don't know if that'll show XP drivers or not - maybe you can ask Dell support (via email) where the XP drivers are for your syste..

Then it's just a matter of inserting the XP disk, formatting your hard drive, and then starting the clean installation of XP. After that you'll spend a lot of time updating drivers and Windows Updates, then installing and updating your programs. Don't forget a good antivirus, antispyware, and firewall program (at a minimum) for your protection while online.

What are the extra added features added in window 7 as compared to window vista

A:Window Vista vs Window 7

My observation is that what is not in Win 7 that was in Vista is the greatest positive. More stable, less bothersom ( do you want to do what you just said you wanted to do . . do you really, really want to do it ) much lighter on resources, more nimble.

A comparison of XP to ME comes immediately to mind.

can you be a little more explicit - how many programs are you trying to open and does the card allow you to use (share) main memory

I have a few questions relating to the license terms for the Free Windows 10 Upgrade from 7.
1) Does the license require that Window 7 be replaced on the computer with Windows 10? For example, can I create an image of my existing Win 7 system, recover it to a second hard drive and then upgrade that second HD to Win 10? This would permit access to either operating system at a time albeit requiring a switch of drives.
2) Does the license permit a dual boot with the original Win 7 and a clean install of Windows 10?
3) If either of these is allowed by the license terms, are there any issues with activation?
Thanks for any help you can provide.​

A:Window 10 Free Upgrade License Question

If Windows 7 and Windows 10 are on two different physical hard drives, and only one hard drive is physically connected to the computer at a time, I don't think that violates the EULA.

It violates the EULA to dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 10 with only one license. You do not get an extra license for a second Windows with the upgrade.

I don't think you would have any issues with activation if you switched out hard drives.

Whenever I add an attachment to my emails, and even here on your website when I uploaded the attached pics, the 'Choose to Upload' pop-up window containing (in this case) my pics ALWAYS (but never used to) opens in the Details mode instead of Thumbnails where I can actually view the pics to be attached prior to attaching them.
I would like the default setting for this occurrence to obviously be in the Thumbnails mode.

In a related issue I would also like to be able to load more than one pic at a time when attaching pics to emails, etc...
Is there such a setting?

Thanks for the assistance

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

CompInfo: Vista Ultimate, IE8--See Profile for more.

I thank you for your time.
