    I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop that's acquired a nasty virus. There is little important on the PC worth saving and I'd like to just reinstall everything back to the way it used to be. According to the storage manager, there is a recovery partition on the hard drive, which I believe contains a backup of everything that was on the laptop originally. How do I initiate a recovery out of this partition so I can start fresh.
