Hi everyone. This is the worst day of my life. My ROG GL552VX has this problem that it doesn't let me use the taskbar. This was my fault because I've downloaded something that contains a virus. All solutions that I saw on the internet didn't fix this problem. Even ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 can't detect the virus, I run a full system in-depth scan to both drives C:/ and D:/ which is the default partitioning of this unit. So I don't have any choice but to reinstall Windows 10. With this chance to reformat the device, I would take an advantage to repartition it too. So that I may use the free space in C:/ drive to put games on it to achieve increased Read/Write Speeds. The default partition size for C:/ is at least 371GB and for D:/ is somewhere in 558GB. I would like to partition it like this: C:/ will be 50GB and D:/ will be the rest available space.

With that in mind I now have this question, does repartitioning the drive (remove the Product Key of this device)/(does it need to ask the Product Key) when installing Windows 10? Or this will skip this step? I would like to know this information before attempting anything so that I will be sure that when installation comes, it won't ask me about the product key(since I don't have it).

(Optional)And if you know anything about this virus, you can advice me on doing some trials to fix this. It would be great too!

Just use windows 10 restore and after restoration use disk management to repartition your drive. :cool:
