will the partition of ubuntu get formatted or deleted?
Im using dell inspiron 1564.this is a dual boot system-(windows7 & ubuntu). Recently my system got affected by viruses. Even-though i have a working antivirus I get frequent pop-ups saying "threat detected". I'm tired with deleting those viruses. so decided to restore system from OEM partition to get rid of all those viruses. before installing ubuntu I had a single partition (c:\), then i made it into two partitions one for ubuntu clean install. now if I restore my system to factory settings from OEM of windows7 will the partition of ubuntu get formatted or deleted? I need help please. Thanks in advance for any kind help....

Are you sure the pop-up is from your AV or the Win7 Firewall and not a fake AV trojan which you clicked on from a pop-up which has now infected your System. If so you'd want to run Combofix to repair infection. There are other steps in posts 9 and 11 here which can overcome this type of infection: Fake AV infection - files hidden?
Normally Dell DataSafe Recovery will restore the HD back to factory condition when it is run, unless it offers to direct the restore to a named partition. Dell Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings
A better option for you might be to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 while deleting the Win7 partition to recreate and format it during install. Everything you need is in the blue link.
Then follow Barman's procedure here to set up the Dual Boot so that GRUB can't corrupt Win7 as it can do otherwise when on the same HD: Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7
