ThinkPad computers have what we call the service partition, which can set the computer back to its factory stated even without the recovery disc. The service partition can be accessed by pressing the Access ThinkPad or Access IBM button during start up.
performing a software recovery, Lenovo recommends returning your system
to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has
been added to your system.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:
To start the Product Recovery program, press F11
will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be
there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the
F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will
enter the Service partition.
Select Full Recovery to get rid of the viruses. Wait for it to complete and your computer will be back to when it was fresh as new.
