Help?

Okay, so I had this virus on my computer then my computer crashed so
I was restoring it back to factory defaults or whatever. I have a Toshiba Satellite and it has a fast link once you go through Computer Repair, and my laptop died when it was about 53% done restoring and now it won't complete start-up and I can't find the setting to go back to factory defaults.. Help?

Toshiba Factory Recovery

Be advised: this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

If factory recovery won't now run, you may have to find a Windows 7 installer to clean reinstall using the Product Key on COA sticker on your computer. You can order Recovery Disks from the maker but they will contain the factory bloatware which can bog down Windows 7.

Here's how to do it: re-install windows 7
