Windows 7: I want to do a clean install of windows 7 but do not have disc

I want to do a clean install of windows 7 but do not have disc

Hey gurus. I could not find the tutorial for doing a windows 7 clean install. If you could send me the link I would be grateful. However, I have another problem.

When I bought my computer, it did not come with a windows 7 disc, nor does my computer even have a disc drive. I have a valid copy obviously, I got my computer from best buy years ago. I have just become sick of the bloat ware and I want to do what you guys said and have windows 7 "running perfect" as the great "GREGROCER" (think that is his handle, if not sorry mate).

I do not know a lot about computers, so I realize this is probably going to be really hard for me to do, but I will follow the tutorial and give it my all, but I'm afraid I might not be able to do it without having the software needed, and since I already paid for a copy of windows 7, I would rather not buy another one if you know what I'm sayin.

Also, after doing the clean install, how can I find all the drivers I need to make my computer work right. Obviously, not having a disc drive, I was not given any software for all that.

Can anyone help out a dumb blonde with this issue?
