Yes please as what you have there in the 2GB Recovery partition is from when Vista was pre-installed by Fujitsu.

I should imagine you want to stay with Windows 7 so do a new install.

Some people may say you could just delete the recovery partition but me personally I like a thorough clean install when it comes to something like this.

Once you have installed it goes without saying to get all applicable windows updates and ensure your system is secure.

I have done all this but the problem persists. About 15 minites after starting Windows.

Are you telling me that you have done a full clean install of 7 in what around 20 minutes?

I am. There was next to nothing on my HD. Just my firewall, browser and anti-virus. I just did a clean install the other day, which is when the problem started.

But you didn't do a clean install the other day Murrr, you left the 2GB Vista recovery partition on.

A browser and anti virus would not exist immediately after a new install unless you include IE which to my mind is a trash browser.

Please follow my advice.

I am following your advice :confused:. I think we've gotten lost somewhere.

The other day I did a clean install of Windows to clean my computer up, without touching the partition. I immediately installed Chrome, my firewall, the discussed graphics driver and my anti-virus, which I had previously downloaded and stored on an external HD.

Today, at your suggestion, I formatted both partitions, including the 2gb OEM reserved one which I then deleted, and did another clean install. This did not take much time at all. Then I set about installing my firewall etc. again and shortly after that the error re-occurred.

I don't really know what else to say/do?

If you deleted all partitions when installing 7 using Drive Options (advanced) as shown in these shots then all is ok with the operating system.

You have not mentioned any windows updates at all and I don't know why you are installing a separate firewall as the inbuilt one for windows 7 is quite adequate.

Windows is trying to update but the system rarely stays stable long enough to complete them.

Thank you for trying but I will seek help elsewhere. I have followed your instructions to the word and I do not wish to be condescend further.

I fail to see where I have been condescending towards you Murrr as all I am doing is trying to help you and will continue to do so.

However if you wish to seek help elsewhere then that is your prerogative and there is nothing I can do about it.
