    Have you tried using something like ccleaner or the disk clean app?
    https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
    That should clear the cache.

    Windows 7 isn't free and you cannot change operating systems unless there was already a deal in place with the store you bought from (sometimes called a downgrade)
