Windows is not working correctly. I get a lot of errors when trying to open explorer.exe and system resotre fails 10 minutes unto it. I've tried boot disc Dr. Web and memtest come out good. Control panel does not work. Most thing work in SMWN but system restore won't work in that mode. Don't know the name of the service to start it either. I just want to go back to factory restore. Can some one tell me if it can be done through CMD or how I can do it?

Go into safe mode and start a command prompt. Run sfc/scannow. This might help (assuming you dont have malware)

If you want to do a clean install, and have a valid product key, you need a Windows 7 installation disk. Sadly, these are often tied to the manufacturer. There is usually a recovery partition which can be accessed by pressing a certain key eg F11 on startup. Perhaps try googling "system recovery for {whatever your machine is} - no curly brackets in search :-) will give you right key combo. Otherwise contact your system manufacturer for a DVD

Try this link http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/34910-Easiest-way-to-download-windows-7 to a source for a legit Win7 iso.

You can use the Windows 7 USB creator tool http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool

 

However, be aware that your key may not work with the download, as it might be an OEM tied to the machine.

You will need a valid Windows 7 product key to activate the installation.

 

There seems to be another step in using the recovery option.  This is to press the Esc key immediately after pressing the power button.  This will take you to the Start Menu, press F11 to launch the System Recovery.  Then follow the instructions.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
