    I just installed windows 7 and I notice a big file name windows old . Is this there because when I done my installment of Windows for some reason I ended doing installment twice . Reason is when I was doing the installment the final part didn't and it rebooted on its own afterwards windows installment process started over again .

    Run disk cleanup to remove it

    Seems you installed the new system without wiping the previous one. In that case the install process will move the old files to Window.old-Folder likewise.

    For that reason i always format the system partition prior to install any new system :D.
