Windows 7 reinstall need help bad!

Hello thare, well a few days ago i purchased windows 7 for like 30$ online as i am a college student, i made the purchase cause my computer kept freezing and screwing up, so i installed the upgrade and it was working great for a few days. now it is taking forever to start up and once it starts it's super slow and takes forever to do anything, so i wanted to reinstall windows 7 i know how to reinstall cause i have done it with windows xp. But the problem is since i bought a "windows upgrade" i don't have a disk to reinstall with and with my computer being super slow i can't get back onto it and run the windows upgrade to fix it! so is there anyway i can download and burn the disk to a cd with my laptop or other computer? the one i download was Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) (build 7600) if anyone has any info that would be great thanks!

Did you download the files from Digital River?? If you still have the files, you can create a bootable USB flash drive and use it to do a clean install... See Brinks tutorial on this -=> Here

Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files

Another method from SIW2 which worked for many here.

After burning the disk, boot from it to do a Custom install, using Advanced drive tools to delete all, create new, then format before install.

I hope you backed up your files. If not then you might want to try to get to desktop to run a repair install (upgrade over itself) to see if it helps although it will normally carry over in-place Upgrade corruption. Of course if you can get to the desktop then you can copy files.

Also boot into the new DVD Repair console and try a few Startup Repairs and System Restore to before problems appeared.

We can help you try to salvage or reinstall here.
