I have just re installed Windows XP. Windows installed after three attempts. When I turn on the computer there are three choices of Windows XP. Only the first works how to remove the other two?

I have a hard drive. At least two partitions. C: 74.7 GB with 63.3 freespace
D: 74.2 GB with 70.6 freespace
These are my original specifications of the hard drive: 160 GB (7200 RPM) SERIAL ATA HARD DRIVE WI
So I suspect there are at least one or more partitions hidden leaving 11.1 GB for hidden partitions!
Windows is present on both drives C: & D:. In the directory windows on C:, the oldest entry is 19.12.12, 21.43 last 21.12.12, 22.50
The first entry in the directory windows on D: is 19.12.12, 18.42 the last 21.12.12, 22.40
I hope that makes sense to someone, any help gratefully received!

As long as you have verified you dΘmarrez done on the c: / partition, Yes, you can reformat the drive D: / partition using Windows 'disk management '.

    Lol when you upgrade you send upwards with a license, not two. The license of Vista is subsumed in Windows 7 one and can no longer be used. This is the reason for which an upgrade is cheaper than licensed full.

    I have just updated to Windows 7 and when I try to run a backup they fail.  It seems that whenever a program tries to update the external HARD disk where backups reside it requires administrator permissions.

    Looking at the options Microsoft suggest that their user account control system is not supported by my version of SyncToy. What can I do? I'm looged administrator

    I have just updated to windows 8 and I hate it.  How to return windows 7?

    Hello

    Clean, install your Windows 7 Media 7 or restore the Windows 7 System Image that you did before upgrading Windows 8.

    If you don't have that:

    The only legal Windows 7 download available is now Microsoft, as Microsoft has stopped DigitalRiver Windows 7 ISO downloads.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery

    But Microsoft only provides these downloads for Windows 7 keys to selling product at retail, not preinstalled OEM product keys (Dell, HP, etc.).

    If you have a Windows 7 license detail and are having trouble at the above Web site, contact Microsoft using the Support option.

    If you have a preinstalled OEM license (Dell, HP, etc.), contact the manufacturer of your computer to order recovery media that they need to provide for a fee.

    Or you can also borrow the same exact retail edition DVD of Windows 7 and use your product key to reinstall.

    You can download and use Process Explorer to see exactly what is taking your time processor/CPU and memory.  This can help you to identify applications that you might want to consider alternatives for and get rid of all together.

    You can disable hibernation if it is enabled and you do not...

    When you Hibernate your computer, Windows saves the contents of the system memory in the hiberfil.sys file. As a result, the size of the hiberfil.sys file will always be equal to the amount of physical memory in your system. If you don't use the Hibernate feature and want to reclaim the space used by Windows for the hiberfil.sys file, perform the following steps:

    -Start the Control Panel Power Options applet (go to start, settings, Control Panel, and then click Power Options).
    -Select the Hibernate tab, uncheck "Activate the hibernation", and then click OK. Although you might think otherwise, selecting never under "Hibernate" option on the power management tab does not delete the hiberfil.sys file.
    -Windows remove the "Hibernate" option on the power management tab and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

    You can control the amount of space your system restore can use...

    1. Click Start, right click my computer and then click Properties.
    2. click on the System Restore tab.
    3. highlight one of your readers (or C: If you only) and click on the button "settings".
    4 change the percentage of disk space you want to allow... I suggest moving the slider until you have about 1 GB (1024 MB or close to that...)
    5. click on OK. Then click OK again.

    You will not be able to use your existing tuners like tuner network. Microsoft has
    arrested development of Media Center, so don't expect any new hardware/software to
    appear.
