Hi there.
Emachines usually gives you restore disk to restore it to factory setting (out-of-the box). see if you can find that disk if not you can contact Emachines and get it from them. it should not be too expensive just shipping could be part of expense. i would say about $25. i would call emachines and get it from them

From Emachines' website.

    There is only one thing you can do without the recovery disk, that is to perform a system restore.
    To perform this go to the control panel, select system/system properties, click on the system restore tab and take the machine as far back as you possibly can (the earliest date available), system restore will boot into action and when its finished it will restart your computer and let you know if the restore was successful, it does not always work.
    Please feel free to post back for anymore advice if needed.

    Good luck

    Hi again.
    Unfortunately there is no recovery partition on Emachines that's why Pressing F11 does not work.
    If system restore fails then you have no choice but to contact Emachines themselves or purchase a Windows installation disk.
    The only other option yo may have and it only works on XP is to click on the start menu, click on run and type into the box MRT.EXE
    This will activate Microsoft's malicious software removal tool and you will be able to scan the computer for the viruses.

    Good luck

Why not delete the Virus? Boot to Safe Mode with Networking, Download MALWAREBYTES at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results. Use your up-to-date Anti Virus software to run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot normally. If you are determined to do a Full Factory Restore, keep in mind a loss of all your data, assuming you have a Recovery Partition, use this procedure: https://support.gateway.com/emachines/software/MICROSOF/vista/7515910/7515910su4.shtml

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.
