Usually, there will be a folder created..."old" that will have things like pictures, etc saved.

You probably have a OS reinstall function on your laptop...check here for which keys activate it (or check with the laptop manufacturer/owners manual). 4 Ways To Factory Reset Your Windows Computer

That doesn't mean you have no problems, btw...;)  Look, your system is *riddled* with malware and viruses--do yourself a *big* favor and dump Win7 ASAP.  If you don't then you can look forward to a *lot* of this in the future.  Do not reinstall Windows 7.  Do not upgrade from Win7 to Win10 (which would preserve all of your installed programs, but which you can't do because you let the malware run wild and you don't want to bring that forward.) Instead, do a format C:\ followed by a clean install of Windows 10--the latest release version is terrific, btw.  Then rebuild your installed software base.  Had you been taking care of business regularly you would not need to do any of this.

For someone who doesn't maintain their computer, that's good advice.

Download a free version of Easeus TODO PCTRANS. creates an image of most of your installed programs on an external Hard drive. After reinstalling Windows, Reinstall TODO PC TRANS and use it to transfer back all the programs back to the new Windows. You can choose which programs you want to transfer. Some programs you may need to "Repair" or Reinstall though. It is not the best, but it is free and at least you won't have to start from scratch. You can also google PC TRANS type programs and see if there are other better ones you can use.

By the way, Have you tried an ingrade Repair of Windows? Basically is reinstalling Windows on top of the same version using an .ISO file.

Also download Spybot - seek and destroy. It is similar to Malwarebytes and also is free.
