    Windows 8 crashed during reset?

    So this is my first post and i am having problems already.

    When I was resseting my windows 8 crashed. It was about 98% done. So thinking that it will just be my old virus infested windows I tried to return to my windows 8 though it turned me to the settings page. I tried getting to one of my restore points it wiped them too. Windows wiped everything. now i dont have a key or cd to reset m(i got windows 8 100% legit)

    The attached vbs file MAY give you your key.
    It depends on how screwed up your computer is.

    If you have an install disk, and can boot to it, you can get to the repair options command prompts and run that script it should pop your key out at you.

    The only other regular program that can show the full Windows 7/8 key is AIDA64 extreme edition
