Do you mean a recovery partition?

See http://www.dell.com/support/Article/nz/en/nzbsdt1/SLN297920/EN on how to do this if your Dell has one.

Does the machine start at all?  If so, you can repair / reinstall Windows 10 with the Media Creation Link.

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Run your Anti Virus followed by Malwarebytes to see if you can clean it up.  Then I would be inclined to reinstall Windows. Two ways:

Go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update.

1. Then select Keep Everything.  OR, more preferably, back up completely, then

2.  Keep Nothing. Keep Nothing is very close to a clean install.

Nothing needed / no data


I think I will opt for a fell factory reinstall
If there is one

The Keep Nothing from the Media Creation Link is a fresh install.

Otherwise, contact Dell for media or use the Recovery partition (link above from DBrunton).

Be aware that if you make a DVD disc using the MS media creation link, or indeed Dell's own Windows 10 download (you need the machine's service tag to access the latter) you may well find that a lot of drivers are missing at first. To make your life easier, make sure you have at least the NIC drivers available on a USB drive or a CD/DVD. Once you've installed these, the other missing drivers will update because the computer will then be able to connect to the internet.

i also would do a fresh install - but if you suppose a heavy virus, maybe best to clean the drive completely with DBAN first : http://www.dban.org/
