Is a system restore using a product key possible?

Hi,
My problem is that I own a toshiba satellite c600/c600d, which has become laden with viruses and extremely slow and therefore I was attempting to format/reset my laptop, however all of my options are unavailable in the control panel and boot menu due to accidental deletion of the recovery partition. I would like to know if I can reinstall windows -therefore deleting everything- with the product key found on the base of my laptop (also I do not own a recovery disc),

Thanks
