    No recovery disc in Windows 8 to go back to Windows 7

    With great enthusiasm I upgraded my HP Pavillion Laptop to Windows 8 from windows 7 but there are many programs which are not working as they should and I want to go back to Windows 7. The problem is that I had not got any option to create a recover disc during installation so where do I get the Windows 7 back?

    Dear friend,

    You can run the programs, in Windows 8 in compatibility mode, that does not work with it.
    Or
    You can also do clean installation of Windows 7 again into your laptop. To do this, you can get an ISO image of Windows 7 on Internet. After installation you can ask the laptop manufacturer to provide the key for Windows 7 with the help of purchase slip. With this key, you can activate Windows 7 genuinely. If you have got your laptop with only DOS operating system, then you should buy Windows 7 to use on your laptop. You can confirm this with the model number of your laptop on Internet.

    Thanks!
