I think you need to reinstall whatever you had before.

Try experimenting with the Windows 7 File Recovery tool in the control panel.

Seriously?

Well you could simply boot up using a Windows 7 DVD then format it before installing the OS.

You said you had Vista.

Find your Vista CD, boot from it and reformat your machine. Everythintg will be erased.

No one here is going to help you repirate your "software from the internet."

Toms does not allow/support piracy.

Yeah, no piracy conversations on the forums. Find your OEM Vista CD and use that.

Lol, I just looked at our usernames.
Either way, everybody ignore my advice. Completely wrong. The name says Windows 7 File recovery and I assumed it would recover files from the previous installation but it does something completely different :p
