Windows 7: HELP WITH RUNNING WINDOWS 7 ENVIRONMENT RECOVERY DISC

HELP WITH RUNNING WINDOWS 7 ENVIRONMENT RECOVERY DISC

HELLO...AND HELP!!!!!!!!!

I had a trojan horse virus. After not being able to get rid of it all, I had to clear out my hard drive and operating system. I totally started from scratch. I have back up discs from Best Buy. All of them installed but the WINDOWS ENVIRONMENT RECOVERY DISC.
When I put the disc in, I get AUTO PLAY...OPEN FOLDER TO VIEW FILES USING WINDOWS EXPLORER.
EVERYTHING else is installed but the Windows 7 environment recovery disc.
HOW DO I INSTALL WINDOWS 7 WITH THIS DISC ON MY COMPUTER?
When the computer boots up, it says WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM. Is it installed already?
I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just trying to get my computer back and going.
Best Buy wants to charge me to tell me, and I don't have the money.
I have been working at this for HOURS! PLEASE HELP!
Thank you

That is the Repair Disk you use to try to repair Windows 7 when it won't boot.

You dont' need to install it - just keep it on hand in case it's needed.

You want the Windows 7 Installation DVD - do you see that? You might also have Recovery Disks. If in question type out what is printed on each disk.

Boot the DVD or Repair disks following these steps: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

Then follow these illustrated steps to install: Clean Install Windows 7

You have one year's free manufacturer;s tech support which comes with every computer purchased. They will help you do this if needed, or just ask back here.
