Well, if you were installing from within Windows then it was not a clean install, just an extra install. You need to make your flash drive bootable:

It should then remove previous installs.

It is important that you start your computer with the flash drive inserted - that way it acts before Windows tries to start. If your motherboard won't allow you to put the flash drive ahead of the hard drive in BIOS then maybe you can download a restore package from your computer manufacturer (at a price).

Have you got a CD drive? If so the best way is to purchase (or borrow) a Win 7 CD and do it the proper way.

Either way you go through the authentication procedure with MS, so have your product key to hand before you start.

I'm guessing a bit because I don't know the full background to this situation or the make or model number of your computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

AutoIt is a very useful scripting feature. Either you or someone else put this script in place to "do something" during startup.

For the time being go to the Start orb and look for a folder called Startup. Delete whatever is in there (into the bin). This should prevent the error message. You then need to decide what this entry was all about and whether it is something you need and want to amend. It could be the remnants of a virus because Windows.exe does not appear to be a valid Windows file.

In the unlikely event that you have more than one entry in Startup you will then need to delete all of them, then restore them from the bin one at a time until you find which one is the culprit. Items in Startup are not part of Windows install - they are something that has been added since.

You say "I can access the computer". I hope you don't mean can't.
If you can't get to Windows you will have to try the above from Safe Mode (tap F8 key while booting) - hope it works.

What was the reason you installed Windows 7 twice? If it was because of the above problem then you might have introduced a more serious issue which could be a lot harder to overcome.

I can't open safe mode(it says that is a problem of hardware or software).I can only start Windows Startup Repair which doesn't help in this problem.
I can try to delete the file from the other windows but the folder is hidded.

Sorry, I don't know what you mean by "the other windows". Have you got some other operating system on this computer? Un-hiding files and folders is normally done from Control Panel > Folder Options.

I have had further thoughts about this issue. It is more likely be that the file Windows.exe is already missing so the script cannot find it. It must be a long script (it mentions Line 926) - goodness knows what else it does.

It might be possible to look into the system using a Live Linux CD, then remove the AutoIt script file or the AutoIt program. Not easy as neither of us know where either are located.

The only other thing I can suggest is a factory restore (if you have that facility) or reformat and re-install Windows 7. You would lose everything but a Live Linux CD would allow you to copy your important files onto a flash drive before you start. You are then likely to need drivers.

Note we do not know the make or model number of this computer.

Glad to hear the error is gone.

If you have two installs of Windows 7 then it is now in a bit of a mess. This should help (assuming your issue is software):
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorial...

As I said, everything will go, so you might care to create a Linux Live CD on another computer then use that to first backup your important data onto a flash drive. It might be an idea to use a Linux Live CD anyway, so that you can get an idea whether you might have a hardware fault that is behind your crashing.

Have you ensured that the CD is set to boot before the HD in BIOS and are you putting the CD in the tray then turning the power on?
