I thought that re-installing Win7 Upgrade over Vista using Custom install would get rid of ALL the win7 files. This needed to be done as the virus that got that computer was next to impossible to get off. After re-installing (twice to make sure) there are still files from the original install over Vista. The windows.old and windows.old.000 files are both referring to Win7. What I would like to do is this: Uninstall everything from Win7, taking me back to Vista, doing a recovery (alt-f12) so I have clean Vista then install Win7. I don't know, but I think that is the only way I can get this right. Any suggestions? I did do a search in these forums and didn't get a hit on any key words I used. THANKS in advance because I know you all know!
