    Hello,
    I just installed windows 7, and have a few important questions.
    1 - When a clean install is done, going from XP to 7 is there the folder
    windows.old created, or is that only done when it is an upgrade?
    2 - Every day, a few times every day I am having programs freeze on me.
    I have to reboot to "safe". I check the events viewer and it says that the program hang.
    So it basically tells me nothing!
    3 - I also have been having the BSOD, sometimes with the nstor. Is that the Nvidia?
    4 - When installing some of my proggies I have had permission denied on a few of the .dll/s.
    I just wanted to make sure that it was ok to add the Admin to those dll/s.
    I didn't change the system permissions just added the Admin.

    I was possibly planning on reinstalling win7 if these errors and freezes continue,
    unless someone has a suggestion or a tweak to possibly make them stop.

    Thank you so much!

    Answers :D
    1. There will be a windows.old folder created if the user does not format the drive upon performing a clean install.
    2. What programs are hanging?
    3. Could you post the event logs related to the BSODs?
    4. If I understand correctly, giving the DLLs admin permissions should be fine. Be careful if you decide to Take Ownership of them though.

    Don't reinstall Windows yet :), let's see what we can do first.
    I'll try my best to help you out.
    Cheers!

    That 'may' give you an idea of what is going on with this weird machine.
    I am so not used to all these errors as I never had any problems in XP.
    But XP couldn't handle large drives and folders.


    I appreciate the help you can offer!!!
    Thank you!

    Hmm,.., interesting ^.
    Let's run a disk check
    start menu>>type "cmd">>right click run as admin>>type in
    "chkdsk /f"
    Also run a system file check.
    same procedure, just type "sfc /scannow"

    Are we having fun yet? NOT!

    OK I 'tried' to do the chkdsk 3 times, and 3 times it froze.

    I did run the scannow and this was the outcome:
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.


    I created a repair disc, so I am going to run a few things and see what happens.

    This is getting very frustrating!

    I checked the memory (which is brand new) and it was perfect.
    Then while I was pasting the results in the text file, the dern machine froze again.
    (sigh)

    OK, I tried everything and everything froze, so I am going to reinstall win7.
    From what I have been reading, this seems to be a MAJOR problem with win7, so I am not alone.
    I just wish they would have gone easier on the permissions!
    Everything that is touched has to have admin rights even drivers and that to me is a bit overboard!

    I will be back tonight after I am reinstalled, cleanly this time!
    Thanks!

    OK I reinstalled windows 7 and something is majorly wrong!
    I had a great install, nice and easy. Then after about 3 reboots and adding
    necessary hardware, I get:
    "DISK BOOT FAILURE"

    I have NEVER been so dern frustated with any product in my life!
    I had memory leaks as well with this reinstall. I don't know how to read most of the events in the events logs:

    Is there a way to make a copy of the entire events ID log file?
    I'm afraid to reboot now as I will get that boot failure again.
    I did do the chkdsk this time and it did complete!

    I'm going to look for an answer for this boot problem ... somewhere :(

    This could be an indication that your HDD is on the fritz... you said that you're now booted into Windows on that computer? How'd you get it to boot?

    I'll leave whether or not you want to risk it up to you, a startup repair may fix it, or you may have to go into the CMD and try some commands.

    Well Mitch ...
    I replaced my HDD and I have windows 7 perfectly running now.
    I think ALL the problems I was having I can attribute to the bad HDD.

    I REALLY appreciate all of your patience and assistance! :)

    Thanks again!!
