If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.
It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.
However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.
Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer.
Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.
Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner.
Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor.
Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."
Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."
Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.
Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart.
Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your internet settings.
hope this helps

If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.
You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.
You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html
Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.
