Restore to Factory settings Problems

Specs: Windows 16.09.2009

Alright. I've finally broken down and decided to restore my entire computer to factory settings. The only problem is the virus I had gave a good once over to my computer and even some of the restore programs arent working. When I try to run Recovery Manager I get a window that pops up and says Restore7.exe - Unable to Locate Componate : This application has failed to start because STFiles.dll was not found. Try Re-Installing the application may fix this problem

And when I try to run Recovery Disc Creator I get a thing saying CD Creator.exe is missing.

I mean, I dont want to spend the cash on new factory restore disks, i just want to know if there is any way to get this stuff working again that isnt too complicated.

By the way, my computer is an HP Pavilion I thin and the model number is a6700f.

I need help asap, its really getting on my nerves.

... tap the <F11> key @ bootup

[press] the power button to start the HP. [press] and hold the <F11> key to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.

... thats if the recovery partition exists!

I've tried that and nothing comes up. It goes right to the logon screen.

And it probably knocked out your ability to create System Restore CD too. If I were you I would purchase the Recovery kit DVDs from HP for around $30.. This kit will format both Windows & Recovery partitions and rebuild the Recovery features, giving you a fresh restart.
