So the fastest and best option at this stage would be a re-install

I want to reformat my computer in case the corruption is a virus, though it may not be, but either way, the computer isn't working well. I hope my HD isn't failing, I couldn't afford another computer for awhile.
If my disc drive would work, I could use that to reinstall the system files, but I don't have a Windows 7 disc, so I'd have to get online to get it, or have microsoft send me one. I am unable to use my disc drive because of some file I accidentallly deleted. My computer is a netbook, the drive is external. When I tried to copy the missing file from another machine, it wouldln't work.
A few days ago while I was here, I clicked on a link I saw in a thread you made about reformatting, and got a message that the file I needed doesn't exist, it was some kind of recovery file, if I recall. When I got the computer I forgot to do something that would've made it easier to restore back to factory default, the missing file I got the message about may be that one.
I got the program you gave me the link to that makes a USB drive bootable but I haven't beeen able to figure out how to make it work. Now that I'm not as stressed out as I was during that time, I will try again to make that happen.
There has to be a way for me to do this. I still get the alert about the corrupt help file, and I still have to copy the suspicious files someplace, but really, I'd rather just start clean. The past few weeks have been very busy and I haven't had the time or patience to work on it but things are settling down now, and I can devote some time to this.
I think my first step should be to try getting that USB to be bootable, so I will try doing that within the next 2 days.
I will let you know how it goes. If there's any instructions I need to have during the reformatting process that needs to be printed out, please let me know, I don't have another machine to get online with, or anywhere to go to get online.
Thanks again for all your help.

A good friend has the same problem, says something came in with SP1, he can't get certain updates to work either, but I don't think he has Win 7, though he's sure of where the virus came from, and says he can't get rid of it, has to reformat.
While looking around at this site, I found another program that makes USB drives bootable, so if I can't figure out that other one I'll give it a try.
