The Windows DVD to USB tool works perfectly too, it's free why not use it?
i will first restore its system by the recovery option at start-up and see if these infections are removed but if they are not, i will do a clean install. thank heaven for people like you all guys.

What is "vista all copy?"

Is Vista the original OS which came on the PC?

If so do you have the Win7 upgrade media as you can do a clean reinstall of only 7 without restoring Vista first by booting the Win7 Installation DVD. Reinstalling Windows 7

The installer is driver-complete with newer arriving quickly after install via optional Windows Updates - so put your wireless or ethernet driver on a stick/CD so you can get online quickly to get newer drivers. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be imported from the Support Downloads webpage for your model.
