Question about Toshiba MK1637GSX 160 GB IDE Hard Drive
Howdy - That's not the tool you would use for such an issue. You need a hard disk partitioning tool.
If what you are experiencing is a virus, particularly a root kit virus I would not trust anything to remove it except a full repartitioning and formating of the hard drive.
A perfect one would be EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition available HERE (I have no connection to the company except that of a satisfied user).
It's free and well documented and easy to use but PLEASE be aware (If you're not already) that tools such as this can easily wipe out your HD and any data on it if you are not paying strict attention. Before mucking around with this software (or any like it) please make sure you have at least one full backup (if there is important data involved).
Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this will help you

Tips for a great answer:
WHAT CAN CAUSE PC RESTORE TO FAIL?
If the hidden DSR (Dell System Restore) partition is removed
If the MBR (Master Boot Record) is modified in any way (such as if you load the Vista Upgrade over XP)
If you change the MBR but the pointers to the DSR partition are left, the DSR will boot, detect that the MBR has changes, and flash a screen that informs you that the MBR has changed and that image restore will not run
If you create additional partitions, changing the MBR, Dell PC Restore will be disabled to prevent it from overwriting these partitions that may contain critical data during a restore operation
If you add a second SATA drive and migrate to a RAID array using the Intel applications accelerator in windows, running PC Restore will put the image back on C:\, but the system will not boot since the boot sector is looking for the ATA driver (factory image) and the bios is looking for the RAID driver (migrated configuration)
If any of these occur, you cannot set the system back to Factory condition. You must manually load the operating system, drivers, and all application software.
