You don't need to buy a new Windows 7 DVD.

You should be able to access your OS restore image that is stored on a partition of your HDD.

It is accessed by pressing F8 when first starting your computer and used to restore the system to factory ship status, as it was when you first got it.

Be sure to move/copy/backup all data that you don't want to loose.
This will reformat your C drive, everything there will be lost.


You should be able to burn DVDs from that partition for re-installing.

You can also request backup disks from Dell, I've gotten them before will no problems.

First, you need to make sure that your system is clean since doing a factory restore may not get rid of the virus.

If able, install and do a full scan of your system with MalwareBytes free. If not, then you could create a bootable 64-bit Windows Defender Offline USB or DVD on another computer to use to do a full scan your system with at boot afterwards. When finished, see if you are able to install MalwareBytes and do a scan with it as well.

OK, so can you open this program ?:

Hitman Pro: Home - SurfRight

scan with it. if it doesn't open try in force mode: Hold down the left CTRL-key when you start Hitman Pro and all non-essential processes are terminated, including the malware process.

report back
