We have a PC, running Windows 7, which Sophia inherited from Rich. We don't have a password for this PC, which has not been an obstacle for Sophia using it because it automatically logs in; but, I think this might present an obstacle for, oh, installing security patches. Yeah.

What we would like to do is back up/upload files from the PC, wipe it clean, re-format, re-install Windows, and re-install everything from scratch. Of course we don't have any install media that might have come with the PC. (Did I mention that this was Rich's?) But it appears to have an Official Microsoft Product Key on a sticker on the underneath. This should license Windows on the PC, right?

1) So if I got a Windows 7 install disk and ran the installer, will I be able to use the Product Key to make it go?

2) Does anyone have a Windows 7 install disk I could borrow?
