I got infected with the "system check virus" which is making my files hidden. So I can't go to the Gatweway Recovery Center to do it automatically. I'm on Windows Vista. I tried doing all the "F" pressing that takes me to the "Repair" screen but that doesn't work either. It ends up taking me to a screen that asks for a user name and password and I can't get past that. Seems the solution is to format the drive. My Recovery Partition is on the D drive for Gateway. I am able to access a Command Prompt. Can someone help me and let me know if it's possible to just format the C drive and then somehow reinstall windows vista from that recovery partition? Any help is appreciated thanks!
