Hi and welcome

the are basically two options. If you can get into your computer (even in safe mode) its pretty easier. there is a whole tutorial here System Image Recovery
If you cant get into your computer and have either a recoverydvbd that came with the computer or a win 7 dvd you boot form those and select restore my computer from there.
