Question about eMachines T5048 PC Desktop
You will need a bootable antivirus solution to clean the viruses off of the machine if it's that bad, or at least that is the easiest way I know of.
Look, here is the real deal, your PC when booted to the hard drive into windows OS has what are called OS protected files. That means that even the best scanner will not remove it totally from the machine while booted in Windows OS.
When you use a bootable AV solution it runs the OS from the CD, then when you are scanning the drive for those little nasties, it can be remove, because the OS on the drive is not protecting them.
However be aware when using this method, that any files can and will be removed!!! The way I look at it, if it's a virus I don't want it on my hard drive! period! Then once the virus is removed format and reinstall the OS. Sorry to hear about your Recovery Partition!
There are ways to make these yourself, but if you don't know what your doing, relax Bart has you covered!
Check that out, that should fix you up. Yeah I know this is not a free solution, but one I know will work!

Also you can reload the OS from a C.D. which will wipe everything out. its more effective and gets rid of everything.
