  1. Hello. Here's my situation: I bought a new laptop (Compaq CQ58-203SM,http://www.bcgroup-online.com/proizvodi/laptop-I-notebook-racunari/hp-Compaq-CQ58_203SM(C6J02EA)+2GB-Sodimm-18368/), downloaded Windows 7 x64 from a trusted web site (msdnaa), installed it, installed drivers* (chipset and network adapter; audio driver was already installed), downloaded all programs, like antivirus (Avira), Google Chrome, etc., updated windows multiple times, but after one boot, it was all messed up: first, Windows loaded extremely slow, second, my network adapter and Avira, were uninstalled, which I noticed in Control Panel, as well as uninstalled Google Chrome, Foxit reader, etc., everything except Ethernet driver and Dropbox. The computer still boots very slowly, and it is dysfunctional. I hope I provided you with enough information. Thanks.
    *on Compaq site, there were no drivers for this model for Windows 7, only for Windows 8, but I downloaded these http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=5273664&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=5259206&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4063
