I'll try to find out what's wrong with the DVD-drive, it's strange that it's not working with Win7 computers.
The Recovery disk making app only supports USB Pendrives.

I'm using Eset Smart Security 4.2 (a not exactly legal version).
Since it was that quick on the quick scan, go ahead and do the full scan.

After the full scan finishes, we'll get 100% legal by using the very best free anti-virus software there is, namely, Microsoft Security Essentials (link in my sig). The first time you run Microsoft Secuirty Essential it will take awhile because if will be checking for everything possible, it will be removing any rootkits, ir will run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool which it will download and install. After that, then MSE will run the MSRT (Malicious Software Removal Tool) once a month, corresponding with the normal update cycle for this rootkit remover software. You will find MSE being updated, sometimes several times a day if the virus writers have been particularly active. Although how frequently MSE updates depends on your update settings in Microsoft Update. But I'm getting ahead of myself here.

AFter that full scan finishes, download and let MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) do its thing. AFter MSE finishes, 100% remove ESET.

The Recovery Disc and the System Repair Disc are different animals.

After you have a system repair disc, I'll go thru the steps to put it onto a usb stick. a 512 MB stick will be more than sufficient. Nowadays, its hard to get small usb sticks. I end up using 4 GB sticks when I only need a 256 mb stick.

Putting the system repair disc cd onto a usb stick is a trivial exercise.

In this case I would instead install Avast 6 which has a very valuable boot scan for 32 bit. Avast is exactly comparable to MSE. After install and updating, schedule a Boot Time scan, restart and Scan.

You can also run the MS Standalone System Sweeper based on MSE which boots from CD or flash stick to run a boot scan, which gets deeper since no System Files are running: Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper

Either way I would uninstall the bootleg Eset, Registry Mechanic and Tuneup Utilities which are tweaking suites that may have already messed up your Win7. To check this now run SFC -SCANNOW Command

1. Press <F9> during bootup.
Ensure to press <F9> only once during bootup.
2. Select the language you use and click to continue.
3. Repeat the step 12 in the previous section.
4. Connect a USB storage device to your Eee PC and click Backup in the Recovery System dialog box to start the recovery files backup.
The size of the connected USB storage device should be larger than 16GB.
Memory cards are not supported for this function.
A dialog box appears as a reminder if you have not connected the USB storage device for system recovery backup to your Eee PC.
5. Select a desired USB storage device if more than one USB storage device is connected to your Eee PC and click Continue.
6. All the data on the selected USB storage device will be cleared. Click Continue to start the backup or click Back to backup your important data.
You will lose all your data on the selected USB storage device. Ensure to back up your important data beforehand
7. The system backup starts and click OK when done.

Excellent.

Let me know when MSE finishes.

You are making excellent progress.

With MSE you will have excellent protection from a free, small footprint, non-interfering anti-virus, anti-malware program which also activates your Windows firewall and will result in the MSRT being run regularly.
