If you have a key then you must have originally had Vista. Where did it go?

IMO, stay clear of torrents, P2P in general. The malware forums are full of user`s with problems originating from d\l`d via torrent files.

Hate when that happens.

There is no restore partition?

What is the make and model of the PC?

Dell normally will provide an OS reinstall disk, as long as you are in the US and are the owner of record.

Are you sure you don't have a recovery partition on that machine? Try here:
