Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box.
Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default".
Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process.
Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart.
This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.
or if you are running XP
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.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.
You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...

You can start the Recovery from outside windows by holding down the ALT key and tapping F10 repeatedly
on startup. When the recovery loads you will be prompted for a password.
This should have been set by the customer if they have been into the Acer Recovery Management software previously.
If they have forgotten the password or you wish to clear the password you need to boot off the recovery disk that should have been created.
From the Acer toolbar at the top of the desktop click on the disk icon
Setup a password if requested.
After clicking on setup you need to click Create Password to continue.
Create a password and add a password hint (strongly recommended).
You now have the option of restoring from a previous Windows Vista backup or you can start the Acer recovery process.
The recovery is started by clicking Restore at the bottom of the window.
Further types of recovery are now presented.
Choose Restore system to factory default if you wish to run the hard drive based recovery and return your Acer computer back to it's original factory default state.
Note: The factory default recovery will wipe ALL data from the computer so ensure important data has been saved to disk before proceeding.
Enter the password that was previously set.
Confirm you wish to run the recovery process.
After confirming you wish to run the recovery process the computer will restart and restore all the original files
Complete the Out of Box Experience when prompted
After a couple of restarts the computer will run through restoring the preinstalled software that came with your computer and then be ready to use
hope this helps

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
