    Title says it all. My computer is very sick and I've received an error message today saying windows must be reinstalled, insert the reinstallation dvd. I don't have that disk anymore though I do still have the product key.

    What should I do?

    You may need to buy a new one. Do you have a recovery partition on your hard drive?

    That is a very strange message, though. Are you sure you're not infected? Where and when did you see such a message?
