Computer and Recover program won't boot after virus forces me to format C: drive.

2009-02-10, 4:50 AM
I recently got the MS antispyware 2009 virus which made me lose my internet, task manager, regedit, disk management, and rpc server. It also made my settings all retarded. I had the classic start up screen, and classic windows screens and taskbar. Even though I had my settings set to the newer windows settings. I tried to use the rescue and recovery program from windows and had no success in recovering. I also tried pressing F11 during startup to try and enter the rescue and recovery program again with no success. And by that I mean I couldn't enter the program. I got tired of troubleshooting and said screw it and opened partition manager and tried formatting my c: drive. I tried to do it from my computer but I couldn't. I turned my computer back on and it wont boot anything. It shows the think center screen and then goes to a blank black screen. F11 still doesn't work and I'm now at a stand still. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

I just thought I'd add, all I want is to be able to reinstall my operationg system and then use the recovery program to back it up to before I got the virus. Any Ideas would be great.
