minor correction; the WRT150N is a router not a modem.

comment Reinstall Windows from scratch and restore my applications + settings with minimal labor?
In such a situation you could either format the infected first drive first, then clone over, or mount the drive as read-only. I also do not see how restoring from an image file eliminates the possibility of reinfection compared to copying a partition (which would be done at boot time).

I did say "...or other medium". I don't understand your explore comment. I said "drive" as the only person I know who does this keeps a read-only hidden partition at the end of his drive with his OS clone on, which is a reasonably sensible approach given how cheap storage is and how small OS drives should be.

comment Wins 7 Installation and Activation
To clarify; are you asking if the OEM-key on the bottom of the laptop will activate a retail installation? If so, then no, as Molly says. Why can't you use the key included in the retail copy? ("from Microsoft")?

comment Create virtual network
Why the downvote? +1. This exactly what the OP is looking for; Hamachi is a simple VPN app.

He's not circumventing a security restriction, and I think that realistically finding the right person to talk to at a university is going to be just as unlikely as them being willing to change network settings for you. By solving the problem yourself, everybody wins.

I removed "images" from your question tags as it's not really related to images specifically; it's more a general file renaming question.
