Virus Windows Vista HP

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
I have a HP win Vista laptop with a virus on it. I'm unable to access sys restore and any of the files on the user end. When the laptop boots it only shows the recycle bin. I have run ESET, IO Fighter, Malewarebytes. They all found issues and susposedly cleaned them. The computer is still not allowing me to get files or functioning properly.

Anyone have any idea what could be the issue or a way to resolve it with out formatting immediatly ?

Thanks for your help....
