    reinstall windows 10 after I was hacked

    I will not go into details but I have reason to believe my PCs running windows 10 were hacked.
    I want to reinstall windows 10 thinking that would be the safest way back toward security again.
    I got windows 10 via the free windows 7 to windows 10 upgrade opportunity.
    Thus, I have no DVD to stick in and reload windows 10 from since Win 10 was downloaded during the free upgrade.
    Two of my PCs are tainted, I want to do this on both.
    Will Microsoft let me start over again for free?
    If so how do I get a free win10 for reinstall on each computer?

    When you install if asked for a key select I don't have one. With the digital entitlement your computers should activate automatically.
