I have a specific problem requiring a specific solution. I don't want to use any other OS, despite Windows always having a problem somewhere along the line!
I have a Toshiba Satellite, which came with Windows 7 Home Premium on it, and I've been lucky enough to still have the recovery partition if it really does come down to it, but I SERIOUSLY need to downgrade from Ultimate to Home Premium again, because since I put Ultimate on my laptop (which meets the system specs I might add), I've had nothing but longer lag, longer response times, longer everything. I just want to be rid of the Ultimate version of it and go back to HP instead. I need to go back to the previous version, but I'd like to do this without having to use Toshiba's recovery partition so I get back to the version I want to be using. Is there a way to do this with the least amount of fuss? And if so......how do I go about it?
I don't have an external hard drive, I don't have an installation disc (Windows 7 Home Premium came pre-installed, I've only had this since november last year) either.
Any ideas (one's that work preferably lol) would be gratefully recieved!
I did search for something like this but couldn't find anything on the forum, so if you know of it and have better eyesight than I do, a link would be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.

I would highly recommend sticking with the version Toshiba gave you. Running a different version of the OS designed for a different computer is aching for problems and issues such as the one you are having.

Care to perform the following: Publish a Snapshot using Speccy

Thanks for your reply, and I must apologise for the lengthy delay in responding to your answer. Fair's fair after all.
Since the last time I logged on to @$%*ingcomputer (it's never bleeping...it's always something expletive if things go wrong with it), I recieved a stack of updates a couple of weeks ago which seems to have rectified much of the problem with the lag for whatever reason. I don't know how it's done it, all I know is it seems to be behaving itself quite nicely right now...so I'm happy with things as they are for the time being at least.
i did do a specshot a long time ago, but I don't think I'll refer to it right now seeing as the lag and response times are no longer a burning issue. Thanks for the response though.
