My Emachines ET1813 had gotten a virus and some important windows 7 files got deleted. I want to reset windows 7 to factory default or recover the original but i don't have the recovery disc. I've tried to enter f11,f12 at start of reboot but none of them shows recovery option. Anyone know what to do?

Do you really have a Emachines ET1813 or os it a Emachines ET1831? I can't find anything about ET1813. The following is for ET1831 which is probably the same as far as recovery goes.

Recovering from the hard drive during startup
To reinstall Windows OS and all pre-installed
software and drivers:
1 Turn on your computer, then press ALT+F10
during startup. eMachines Recovery
Management opens.
2 Click Restore system from factory default.
3 Click Next to continue. Your hard drive’s original,
factory-loaded contents are recovered. This
process will take several minutes.
Continuing the process will erase all files on your hard
