Safe mode and run your anti-virus program to see if that removes this virus from your computer.

What is the model of your pc? Find out what key you press to access the recovery partition upon bootup.

perhaps if you told us your computer model we can help you discover how to access your recovery partition.

The compaqs and hp's have a 'hotkey' that when entered at bootup, will restore your system to factory settings using your hidden partition. It's usually F8.
