Windows 7: HP Recovery

HP Recovery

My HP Pavillion 6620 is running so bad that I just want to go to the system recovery partition and start over. I have missing files, unexplained lockups, sometimes slow programs, etc. I've saved all of information on flash drives and have the disks for all programs installed. My only question is that I have Microsoft Word 2007 but it's a one use disk. I think I will lose the capability of reinstalling it to full usage again. Is there any way to save this so I don't lose it? I guess my basic question is will I lose absolutely everything and just end up putting the computer back to original as when I bought it when I do the recovery?
Thanks for any help

If you have saved all your personal files, that's good. All the programs you have to reinstall. Word 2007 should reinstall too. If it does not activate (it should though), call Microsoft. They can sort it out.

Here is a reinstallation option you may consider: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

run any software like "Magic JellyBean"( to fetch the key for MS word. After you perform the recovery try to install office and use the fetched key to activate it.

What do you think "one-use" means for MS Office? It does not mean you cannot reinstall it, only that it can only be installed to one PC at a time. You own the license for life to use on any PC you want.

Everything you need to get and keep a perfect install is in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
