Please post the make and model of the computer with the Windows 7 restore file.
If the computer has the option to restore Windows 7 that Windows 10 could be a update made by the manufacturer.

It could be from the manufacturer, but I would think a fresh install of win10 from the manufacturer would not include an option to revert back to win7.
The 2 install dates in my programs and event viewer are 2-27-2018 and 3-5-2018. Close in date so maybe it is normal for this computer. Plus there are only 2 different dates, not a whole list of them. As I said my last computer prior to this had all the programs installed on the same day. Strange to me, that is all, if it is used I need to take it back, but maybe I am overthinking. Thanks.

Just as a data point, I have never run in to a computer that has Win10 installed as the native OS from the OEM have any option for roll back to a prior version of Windows. I do not know of a single OEM that upgrades their computers via "the usual" Windows Update process that would allow this.
I, too, would be very suspicious regarding the provenance of said computer.

Thanks for responding, very appreciated.
I never ran into that problem either. Very suspicious. Guess I will return it. Thank you very much for confirming my suspicion.
Really great Forum guys.
