Acer Laptop W/7 64 bit keeps freezing.It starts not to bad but as soon as you click on any programs it may take up to 10 minutes for it to appear.

If you click on anything else it tends to freeze for a while.

Some programs will open and run with difficulty others just won't.

Not to bad in safe mode with networking but ever so slow in normal mode and have to wait ages for it to close down with Windows Explorer trying to close I/E takes so long you have press the on off switch to turn the laptop off.

She uses it for University so don't want to loose anything if not nessissary.

Her USB flash drive will not work.So she cannot save any of her work.

Ran sfc /scannow and system repair plus her security programs and nothing been found.

Anyone any ideas before I have to set it back to factory settings tomorrow.

If it had SP1 you'd need the Win7 SP1 disk otherwise you'd get the message that the version you have is older, or something similar, and it wouldn't work.

I was going to download the W/7 SP1 link for myself but when I seen the 2.4Gb file it put me off.

Do you download it to the computer then burn to disc or is there an other way.

learning a lot on here in the last couple of days.

You could actually download a copy of Windows 7 with SP1 already slip-steamed in from here. Windows 7 + SP1. This is an ISO so will need burning to DVD. I have copies of them all makes for a simpler reinstall.

But if the HDD is knackered then a repair install will not help at all.But worth a try i suppose.

I take it you have to download it to the computer before you can burn it to DVD

Or can you burn it straight to the DVD.

That is correct.Or you install via a flash drive.Win 7 USB install.

That's the same link really and the 64-bit is just over 3GB. You'll need to download the iso file and have a burning program that supports burning isos to DVD.

Not got a burning program so I will not bother with going any further at the moment.But may do if push comes to shove.

Here's some tips, http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/burnisofile.htm

Always handy to have a disc if ever you need to do a repair.
