You will need to list the infection for a complete fix

But if all you want is to load the system to Factory Specs you need a Wiping Utility to wipe the HDD and remove all traces of any infection and then the Recovery Disc to reload the system.

If you do not Wipe the HDD you will just bring the infection over to the new install and be no better off.

You can get Boot & Nuke from here to wipe your HDD

You should already have your Recovery Disc.
