He could probably download the program from work etc -- but my take on ANY virus etc - - I would NEVER EVER trust a computer again that had been infected until the entire disk had been re-formatted and a totally new installation done.
We all agree that there is no such thing as 100% perfect Virus defence short of never using the Internet so why are we so ready to agree that our infected machines can be 100% cleansed too.
As Mr Spock of the Old Star trek would say --it's just not Logical.
The best way is to buy a proper retail version of Windows 7 -- then you'll have the genuine install disk and you can move to another machine if you buy a new one or upgrade.
With the new disk just do a brand new install.
