Ok. Here's the deal. I acquired Windows 7 Ultimate RTM the other day. I intended to go from XP to 7. I don't have a disk drive on my computer (a netbook) and don't want to spend the money on a 4Gb + thumb drive. My computer had my entire disk drive partitioned into 2 partitions (1 for all things XP and a second one for backup). I used Acronis Disk Director Suite to take some space from partition 1 (which had about 90 or so gb) and make a 3rd partition. I installed 7 onto this partition. I was immediately assaulted with countless chkdsk messages and error messages. I used chkdsk on the 3rd partition and once it restarted, I was finally able to start installing programs. Now, when trying to open Firefox and other programs, I get a message that says an instance of FF is already running and that I should close it (the program is no where to be seen, by the way) or restart. What should I do? After doing some research, I've seen that some people in the beta stages had similar problems using Acronis. I have a feeling this constant stream of headaches and error messages is to be blamed on that program. I need some help.
