Windows 7 validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • In early July (10th or 11th or so) COMODO firewall brought up a prompt about a program trying to alter the system file. I figured this was malware and not a MS update since MS updates are supposed to come through the MS update program. Apparently I was wrong. COMODO prevented a critical update to the system file which wound up damaging the OS. Ever since then I've been getting the usual prompts about the system running a pirated version of windows 7. Unfortunately I left for vacation a couple days later before I could really sit down and troubleshoot it, so system restore wasn't any help (tried it anyway just in case I got lucky but the restore point was created after the damage was done).

    At the moment I'm looking at my options for reinstalling windows 7 home premium (I appear to have misplaced the ISO burn DVDs but have my validation key thanks to a handy little program found online. I'm not sure how much damage was done to the OS, though I've noticed it seems to be having issues with .xml files now). My version is an upgrade from the windows vista OS that came with this machine.

    It appears I can download stock ISO files from digitalriver, the same service I originally got the OS from. Is it safe to do a reinstall using that ISO image and the product key I retrieved from the registry? (and same question with MS office ultimate 2007, which I purchased at the same time. I KNOW I have the CD for that one but its missing)

    Do I have any other options? I'm concerned about just fixing the validity issue since I'm unsure how much damage was actually done. Also generally think it's time for a format anyways.
