Windows 7 updates after factory reinstall

p7-1226s 2.00
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Being infected with the sysWOW64 virus, my computer needs a factory reinstall. My question is, will I be able to get the Windows Updates, since MS doesn't support Win 7 any more? Are they stored on the HD somewhere? Does HP supply them?

Windows 7 updates after factory reinstall

Windows 7 still has support from M$, so you will still get updates.  Assuming that you have the Recovery Manager still available, it will reinstall Windows 7 and then update.  However, there is what is called a Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup which does install many updates outside of the update channel.  See here on how to guide:

 Convenience Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 (basically an otherwise-named Windows 7 SP2) is available which installs all patches between the release of SP1 (February 22, 2011) through April 12, 2016.
