how to I reset computer to factory settings?

Specs: Windows XP 2
cannot use restore as this is disabled, I have the tripexfeed redirect virus that I have spent days downloading sypware and anti-virus programs to remove but none have worked? I thought to reset computer but did not think to do a back up copy of windows. Can anyone help? I cannot afford £50 as quoted by pc world for a service.

Do you have restore disks that came with your machine?

Most anti virus and anti Trojan programs cant find a redirect because it is a "rootkit"

tdsskiller ...can. also do a search for rootkit redirect on google for more free rootkit fixes. Because it is only looking for specific files it can run and fix in under 5 minutes.

As to your reloading question.....borrow a cd.
Be sure to google for a free program to backup and then burn all your present drivers to a cd.....20 minutes as apposed to hours of searching....

you never said the brand & model of your computer so you can google online to see if it has a hidden partition. If it does, you can access that to reset your pc to factory settings.
