    I am sorry. I can't help you any firther. One of the pitfalls buying a 2nd hand computer. No telling what else the original had done to it. Perhaps the mods or someone with better kills than me will come along to assist you. Good luck.

    win 7 re installation

    Adding...... If you download a Win 7 SP1 ISO and use it to reinstall, you will at least avoid re-installing all those pre-SP1 windows Updates. Other than that, you will still have truckloads od Windows Updates to install.

    win 7 re installation

    Short answer : No. ISO does not include windows updates. They are not part of an ISO file. There is no choice but to re-install all those updates after re-install of the OS. Sorry for the disappointment.
