Hello people i was just wondering if anyone can help me my sister has got a nasty virus on her laptop called antivirus.NET. But iam thinking of rebooting the os but the only problem i have is i deleted the recovery partion to expaned the harddrive .For more harddrive space and plus i dont have the recovery cd anyway. As far as i know the version is vista home basic 6.0.6002 sp2 build 6002. If i got a copy and put in the product key in on the back of the laptop would it work.

See Here for detailed removal instructions

Hopefully that will remove it so you do not need to reinstall --- If not contact your system manufacturer and request a recovery CD (most will sell you a new copy for $10 - $$30) --- since you did not make a copy before deleting it you'll need to buy a new copy (I think it usually warns you a few times not to delete that partition to avoid this ! - so can't really feel too sorry for you having to buy a new copy instead of just making one from the recovery partition before deleting it.)
