There is no need to restore your system due to viruses.
Does your virus software do a boot scan. If not get Avast home edition which is free.
click here

Next get Superantispyware which is free and run a full scan.
click here

Then finaly get Malwarebytes which is also free and run a full scan.
click here

By the end of a long afternoon your computer will be free of all the little nasties.

Unfortunately the "image for your machine was in a hidden partition on your old drive and the CD just contains the program to access that image.
You will be unable to to a factory restore unless you still have the working drive or an image of what was put onto the new drive.
