    About the only chance you have is that while booting you press the F8 key and this brings up the Boot From What screen, you might see your recovery partition there. If not, press spacebar and F8 again by tapping on it until you get the safe mode bootup options. Listed here may be your Boot From Recovery Partition, if not you should see Use System Restore, select the first option or the second on I just listed and pick a date prior to your infection.

    Then, go to Avast.com and download their home user program and register to get a license key for free. Reply on the Windows Firewall and Avast to keep you safe.

To get rid of the virus and set it back "just as you bought it", reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system with your recovery or operating system disc. If you use the built in quick recovery system, the virus will remain, and continue to cause damage to the system.

If i reset my dell inspiron b120 to factory settings will it get rid of all the viruses


Maybe. All the OS viruses will be gone, but if you have MBR viruses, you won't get rid of those. Try Microsoft Security Essentials, it's free. Download it and scan your computer.

Rebooting


the system recovery is not build into most of the computers out there, some, a few computers have this function integrated into the operateing system.

in your case you will need to use the windows setup cd or the recovery cds that came with the laptop.
