How to create a System Repair Disk for Windows 7: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/5409/create-a-system-repair-disc-in-windows-7/ and http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7 

There are times when you need to completely reinstall Windows 7. What do you do if your computer didn’t come with a Windows installation disc? Or maybe you have a recovery disc but don’t want all the bloatware that came with the computer.  The answer is to download a new, clean copy of Windows 7. Yes, you can do it legally!

There are three versions of Windows 7 available: Home, Professional and Ultimate. Each comes in either 32- or 64-bit.

Make sure you download the same version you have on your computer. You’ll find the version, along with the product key, on your Windows license sticker or in the System control panel but you may need the real product key and you can get that by running the Belarc Advisor and checking for key under the heading “Manage your software licenses”.

Remember, you must have a full or OEM product key for your Windows license in order to legally install Windows. The product key from a Windows 7 upgrade disc will not work.

Once you have the Windows 7 ISO, burn it to a DVD or a USB drive. Then reinstall as you normally would, or try a non-destructive reinstall. (Thanks to Richard D.)
