Question about reinstalling windows 7

A few weeks ago I bought a DELL computer with the Windows 7 Home Premium. Is there a way to reinstall Windows with the preinstalled system?

There are several ways to do that. Here are some.

1. If you got the Windows 7 Installation DVD with your computer then you can use that. Dell may supply you one on asking for free or for a song if you didn't get it in the first place.
2. If you have a partition on your computer that can restore the factory settings you can also use that.
3. If you have the existing product key carefully saved somewhere then you can download an ISO image of your installed version from authorized sites, the links to which have been given several times on the Forum, burn it to a DVD and install from there and use the saved product key to activate.
4. You can buy and install from a retail box set installation DVD.

So please have your pick.
