Windows 7: How do I recover files after re installation of windows 7

Now there is another question. But this time it concerns licensing.
After I recovered files from stolen laptop, I need to reinstall Windows 7 English version. So for that can I use product key that is on the sticker at the bottom of laptop? Or is there any other options to obtain old license?

The key on the COA sticker should do - unless these thieves already stole it and used it somewhere else.

If the system that is on it right now works, you better make an image of it so that you have a fallback in case of problems.
