It is actually very easy (that is, once you've put everything you care about in a safe place).
  1. Boot from your Windows 7 DVD
  2. When you get to this prompt, click "Drive options (advanced)"
  3. Then you will see this (it's the same prompt, but with those advanced drive options unhidden)
  4. At this point, just make sure your drive is selected, and then click Format (it'll take about 3-5 seconds to format).
  5. After that, click Next and the installation will begin.

Edit: Before you reach step 2, please be sure to choose the "Custom (advanced)" installation instead of the Upgrade type (that is, when you reach this prompt).

Now, if you are using an Upgrade DVD, then this part continues from step 5 above:
  1. Do not enter the Product Key when you're asked for it (seriously, leave it blank and continue moving forward)
  2. When you get to the Desktop, attempt all three of these methods as described here, beginning with the first method.
  3. If you have to do the double-install method, then be aware that it'll take a little longer than the true clean install as described in the 5 steps above.

That's really all there is to it. I mean, here is as bad as it can get: when you try to activate, you might have to call for activation. Worse yet, the automated activation system might force you to talk to someone. But even that is a piece of cake because all they do is ask you if this is your first time trying to activate, and if this copy is currently installed on any other computers. Once you say No to both questions, they'll help you activate it in basically the same way that the automated system would do it.

Edit: Oh, now you changed it to MSE. Still, it isn't hard to do what I'm saying. For example: you are recommending MSE. So, state your recommendation, and provide a link (such as this link: http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx).

Its not rude, If I wanted to be rude, I could have just trolled and said "google it you idiot" I am still proving the link to the programme I am recommending, I am also showing the person how to use google to search for things.
Like I said, had no intention to be mean, and if the person did think it was, then I apologise.

The reason why it's rude is because you are assuming he doesn't know how to use Google when you have no proof. Plus, he didn't ask you to show him how to use Google.

Here's a better way to do it:

"I recommend giving Microsoft Security Essentials a shot. It is free, very low on system resources, and is usually very highly recommended here on Overclock.net. Here's a link:

http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx "

As LMGTFY you says, "Was that so hard?"

Seriously: what you did was rude, and I'm tired of seeing people use LMGTFY.
