Well there are several ways to approach this, 1st you can use system restore, to take your system back to a date that it worked fine, to do that go to the start pearl in the search bar type in system restore, click the Icon for system restore it will give you a calendar with several restore points that your computer has saved along the way. your system will go back to those exact settings, now if this is a virus issue, that is beyond system restore then a complete factory default is in order. Depending on what type of computer you have some have build in restore partition that are build in your windows OS. if thats the case simply hit F8 during start up and choose repair your computer and them choose restore to factory condition, this will delete any files you have on your computer and restore it to out of the box condition. System restore will not delete your data but, often restore points themselves are corrupted, my recommendation is to back up your files and do a complete factory restore.
Hope this helps please feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have on this thread.
Take care :)

Restoring your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings is a great way to get rid of pesky viruses you can't seem to remove from your computer, or simply to remove old programs and files from your computer and start with a clean slate.
Your Windows 7 Gateway computer will likely run faster as a result of deleting old and unnecessary files.
It's also a good idea to restore your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings if you plan on selling it, or passing it along to a family member or friend.
Recover From Windows 7 Home Screen
Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your Windows 7 home screen.
Click "All Programs" in the Start menu, then click "Gateway".
Click "Gateway Recovery Management" to open the Gateway Recovery Management program.
Click the "Restore" header, then click "Restore System To Factory Default".
Click "Yes" in the "Confirm Restoration" dialog box, then click "Yes".
Click "OK" in the dialog box warning you that all of the personal data on your computer will be deleted. Your computer will automatically restart.
When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.
Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer.
Your computer will reboot.

My computer won't do a system restore. Why not?


Unless a RESTORE point was SET up when the last installation was done , the system cannot be set to a restore state of an earlier date.
So you will need to reinstall or try with a recovery disc.

How do you restore the computer back to like when you bought it?


that would depend on the operating system that you have on the computer.. if u hav a windows xp operating system.. you need to run the system restore on your computer back to the date where you got it or not exactly on the date you got, probably a few days after you got it.. computer have save points.. your going to use the save points to restore your computer.. take note, new installed software or new items saved on the computer may be removed or deleted on the system.. the computer will go back to the old setting that it saved on that save point..

you can access system restore on this path
