    Install 8.1, is there an .iso link? virus issue.

    I bought a packard bell recently and it has became infected with virus. and no matter if I reset it or whatever I keep getting certificates self signed, and other traffic issues.

    Also the bloatware is anothe rbutis there a way I can reset the whole thing buy doing a hard install, say download iso from microsft and then use my product key?

    I've no idea how the viruss etc keep coming back.
