  1. All you need to do is put the DVD into your DVD Drive and click install and fresh install it will remove all the data on the drive.

    Scratch that its Server 03. In order to install you need to have a Windows 7 DVD (NOT upgrade) and put it into your DVD Drive and reboot the computer, tell it to boot from CD/DVD and it will begin the setup, when it asks you which type of installation you want to do do a Fresh install it will format your hard drive removing all the data and install Windows 7.
  2. but if you back everything up you will probably back the virus up as well?
