Remah, I'm trying to wrap my head around what you are saying . Some of this relates to numerous instructions I see on the internet on how to do a clean install of Windows 7 or 8. Specifically, is it illegal to download an ISO from Digital River and use it to do a clean install? Unless I'm misunderstanding, this is illegal.
