I got a rogue antivirus (virus), and after removing it I'm still experiencing critical problems. EXE. files will no longer launch. For example, I put Starcraft 2 into the disc tray, click install in the autorun box, and nothing happens. Under task manger I can see the blizzard installer start up, but then shortly closes. This happens with anything that I try to install. I can run programs that are already installed.

I wasn't able to get any help in the antivirus/malware forums and was referred here to ask if there's any way to do a factory system restore with out a disc? All my restore points we're deleted when the virus deleted system restore. I know there use to be a "F" key you could hold down during start up that would let you do a factory restore on vista. Is there something similar on windows 7? Would any one know how to fix my problem?

Thank you.

Ibuypower i3-550, windows 7.
