I have an official version of Windows 7 Professional running on my laptop computer. I don't have a CD/DVD drive (internal or external), and I don't have an ISO of the install file. I have an external hard drive that I can use if I can get ahold of a Windows
7 ISO file. I am pretty sure that I have a virus on my system, and my performance has been significantly worse because of this, so I'm hoping to clear the entire windows partition, and to just start fresh by reinstalling windows 7 after this.
My question: is it possible for me to 1.) get an ISO of the windows 7 install disc, since I own a copy of it (obviously, in a legal way), and 2.) wipe my windows partition, and reinstall windows 7 from the external hard drive?
