    So...what are you doing when you get this error message? A quick fix is to use system restore.

    Actually did startup repair a while ago (windows 8 trying to murder 7?) and it still didn't go away.

    Ok...I'm confused now....do you have both 7 and 8 installed on your computer running a dual boot set up? Or did you just install 8 over top of 7?

    Did you reformat the partition that had windows 8 on it? Sounds and looks like to me that there are some remnants of it left over and causing the error message you are getting.

    Do you still have the partition that had 8 on it? If so I would format it and that will wipe out everything on it. Then if it were me, I would re-allocate the partitioned drive back to the C: drive.

    Nope that partition is gone. And re-allocated back to C. I should delete the folder "$WINDOWS.~BT" It seems to have windows 8 info in it.

    Well other than a quicker startup it still says windows 8 is still there. I have 7 setup as main now at least though. Here soon maybe ill do a fresh reinstall of win 7 GAMER, being as ive heard it being better with games and RAM.
