After a format from a Windows disk I still have the virus and my file structure was not rewritten. I'm not certain, but I'm guessing that the virus is hiding in Bios somehow. At the very least the Bios is disrupted enough to not allow me to press F2 to enter it.
I suppose I could just do a BIOS flash, (though, I can't seem to find that file in the downloads section) but this probably wouldn't work, since the computer is infected with a virus. The flash would either just fail, brick my computer or simply reinstall itself. I need to reset the BIOS and boot to a clean disk and then format my HD in that order, otherwise I'm left with spending all of eternity trying to remove the virus.
I know I can open the case and remove the battery but I'd much rather use a resetting tool that is hopefully available.
