ok so i got a virus on my computer. i normally would get an antivirus and clean it up but my pc is getting cluttered anyways and i like to do a clean restart every couple years. Since i upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7, i dont have a product key anymore (microsoft did away with product keys in windows 10) if i do the windows 10 reinstall through the control panel will i have to register this copy of windows 10 again? or would i have to reinstall windows 7 and then upgrade to windows 10 again?

You won't have to register the reinstall again as Microsoft has a way of automagically ensuring that your key belongs to that machine.

 

So no need to do the Win 7 up to Win 10 thing again.
