Hi Please Help (I Think ive posted this in correct thread if not please move to correct one)

Ok basically a few years ago my brother got a packard bell tn36 laptop that we share

it came with windows vista and a free upgrade to windows 7 pro when realeast

But when we went to upgrade for free on packard bell site it said out of time (we had no clue there was a time limit for the free upgrade to windows 7,which is out of order!)

 

so my brother download a windows 7 from demoinoid years ago from a user called zarko (i think cant remember uploaders name)

im just being honest! , we dont feel guilty as we had paid for a licence in a way!

 

anyway ive been iffy using it as it was from demoinoid,

but avast * malwarebytes showed no issues, allthough i guess the person uploaded it could of put things in bad places (ive been using this windows for years,is it safe??)

 

anyway its worked fine for years

 

BUT!

 

a few weeks ago my brother came in saying the laptop isnnt working BLACK SCREEN WHITE CURSER.

 

im dissabled and dont have the money for a laptop at present so borrow my brothers (he lives with me) so i can have shopping delivered

anyway ive googled a lil bit and put kapaskey 10 recovery on usb boot (said no threats found)

also used the registry editer to check explorer.exe was in the shell thingy (it was)

startup repair find nothing and system restore says no restore points for some reason ??????????????

The only thing i think i  can do is make a  ubuntu usb bootabe usb drive and transer all things needed onto a external hard drive and then clean install windows 7 ( which i really dont want to do unless completely needed)

can someone help with this issue thankyou.

As you haven't paid for a copy of Win7, there's not much we can do here.

I'd suggest that you backup your data and wipe the computer in order to install the original Vista on it.
Should that give you problems, we'll be able to help with that.
