Bear with me, i've posted and searched in that many forums that i'm repeating myself. Anyhow, rather than mess about any longer i've decided to remove the W7 that this new computer came with, and install a fresh W7 from the CD.
Is there anyone willing to walk me thro a watch my lips uninstall and installation of an authorised W7 CD?

What is the make and model of your system? Are you looking to upgrade Windows 7? If this is a name brand PC, and your having issues with Windows 7, have you looked into the system recovery option of the PC?

Windows 7 comes on a dvd not a cd.When you say new do you mean brand new never owned or just new to you?As to authorized are you suspecting that whats in there now isnt authorized?If its a brand new computer the copy of windows 7 should be just fine.However if you bought it used from someone or somewhere then you never know.According to your specs it says windows 7 home premium which is what most brand new computers come with.They rarely come with windows 7 professional preinstalled.

What's the brand name, model name, and model number of that computer?

Did it come with Windows 7 pre-installed?

Do you have an original Windows 7 DVD and its 25-character serial number?

Sorry for the delay in replying. I took the computer to a computer fixit guy and so far everything is working fine without me attempting to re-install a W7 DVD. Thank goodness. Thank you all for your time and expertise.
