I had some rather nasty viruses on my computer that I couldn't seem to get rid of, so I decided to restore the computer to factory default. Well when the computer restarted, it said setting up computer for first time use. After a few seconds, a window pops up and reads "Windows Installation-The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. Well evertime I click the ok button the computer restarts and the same error window pops up. It's like an unending loop. Please help me.

Wipe the HDD completely with KillDisk, then use Windows 7 DVD to reinstall OS.
