    That's a great anti-virus you're using! Vista deserves to be detected as a virus and deleted :D

    Jokes aside, which OS are you trying to install - Vista again or XP? Didn't the laptop come with a recovery partition? Or did you format that too?

    Simplest option is to reformat and reinstall the OS and use a Microsoft Security essentials and DO NOT disable user account control. That should make your computer secure enough. And son’t give your admin account’s password to anyone else. Use the non-admin account for everyday use.
