How can I make a fresh Installation of windows 7 to get the "factory-state " of my Thinkpad T420?



my notebook got infected by a virus (BKA-virus) and now i want to "reset" my T420 (fresh win7 installation).

Can i use the Recovery Manager?

Does someone know an easy way to reinstall Windows and Thinkpad tools?

Hi Sebi, welcome to the forum,


to get rid of the BKA you can do it by scanning your system with the Kaspersky Rescue Disk.  On the site I linked to you should find all the information you need.  Of course you will need to create the disk using a different computer.
