It's possible for images to contain a virus these days but if "you" are shooting them, it's unlikely the camera. It "might" be the software you are using to get the images onto your PC. If you are using Vista, try the built in downloader.

How do i reset dell latitude e6500

Have you tried F8?
Vista instructions:

Press F8 at startup and then go to "repair your computer". Then, select your language and logon as a user with administrative rights. In the list that appears click Dell Factory Image Restore. Follow the steps in the wizard to complete the restoration process.

Things to do afterward: Run Windows Update, install your apps/restore documents from backup, and make sure security software is present and turned on.

If for some reason you can't access Dell Factory Image Restore (for some odd reason my computer is like that, even with the partition intact) you'll have to breakout the Windows Vista DVD and the Drivers CD and do a clean install. Follow the steps here:

For XP: Make sure the computer's off. Turn it on then as soon as you see the Dell logo, hold the Ctrl key down, then press F11. Release both keys. If you timed it right, the Dell PC Restore By Symantec wizard should start. Follow the steps in the wizard.

Need to reset my PC to the original factory settings

You will need to insert the Windows disk that came from Dell and reboot the system, follow the on screen instructions. If you do not have a disk, you will have to look for a dell recovery option within windows.
Good Luck!
