No, you can't download Windows.
You can ask around. Borrowed Windows CD will do.

i have seen malware thats sole purpose is to hide real malware from scanners but they are rare. another possibility could be a harddrive error. these can cause all sorts of funney things to happen. i like using ontrack's easy recovery to do my harddrive checks because it gives you a full readout of any i/o errors but i am not sure how much it costs now and broni probibly knows of somthing simmilar and free
