Answers :

Contact Dell for a System restore Disk
CTRL & F8 should allow you to reload your disk image from the hidden partition that Dell gives you on your hard drive. If you have already tried this and it doesn't work, then your virus may well have damaged the hidden partition. If you haven't already done so you should be able to contact Dell and get their help in either reactivating the partition of having them send you a copy of your disc image. Unfortunatley if you do not have any warranty left you will probably have to pay for both the support and the image. Failing that you could just wipe your hard drive completely and do a complete new install of Linux. The downside of this is that you may have to do some searching for your drivers.
