Hello, and Welcome,

You will need to disable SecureBoot in BIOS. Also Fastboot if enabled. You may need to enable something called Legacy Boot or CSM in BIOS.

Getting into BIOS has nothing to do with Control Panel. If you don't need any data on the computer, you could set it back to a factory state if it's an OEM. What is the make and model of the computer?

 

It's possible to install Windows 7 dual boot but there could be driver issues if the computer is new. Drivers may not be available for Windows 7. Do you need any data from the computer backed up?

 

The slowdown of the computer could also be due to a hardware problem. What is the computer used for, just browsing and basic email?

I know that but to change the setting for bios from secure to legacy, you do it from control panel, lenovo think center edge desktop. This is an new pc and all my work is store there, to lose this is catastroph for me, cannot even access backup disk and to restore it I need admin password
Just for email and office work

If that is the case, trying to disinfect the computer using Kaspersky may render the computer unbootable. Do you have an external drive that you can transfer your work to? Then do the factory reset.

 

Just for your reference. See this link on how to get into BIOS when the computer first boots.

 

Is the OS Windows  8 or 8,1? If 8.1 was it updated from 8 or did the computer come with 8.1? It

 

Is the account you login to an admin account?

 

Type CMD in the search box and Right click Run as Administrator. Type the following

 

net user administrator

 

Please post the results.
