    You extract (and burn) it to a CD and boot off it.
    wipe your paws.

    You need to install some ISO software onto a working Computer, something like http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolso...urnisofile.htm this will have the option to burn the ISO to CD /DVD or If you wanted it on a USB drive then something like https://rufus.akeo.ie/

    Once the CD/DVD is created boot from it to install windows.
    Update / Upgrades = Replace old bugs with new ones.
