    Only available options are:
    1. Creating the 2 partitions I earlier suggested.
    2. Re´nstall windows
    3. If the read error is a sign of a failing hard drive, buy as soon as possible a new one to save the data fast.

    Is there anyway I can save my data?
    I have accesses to it using the USB os you gave me

    I'm not sure as your hard drive at the moment is read only.
    You could try to create a backup using macrium reflect and save the backup on a connected device that is large enough.

    OK sweet

    Could I transfer it to a second hard drive?

    Also when I checked my hard drives attributes it said that the read only was on no?

    Yes, as long as it is connected and you specify to save it on the second hard drive.
    Or you have another pc/laptop to tranfser.

    You could, but I wouldn't do that.
    If there indeed is a virus, it could have damaged a lot, also it could have removed those partitions (depending on what kind of virus).
    The reset function is not always functioning correct, like the resetting process is stuck at some point or didn't do the job right.
    Also, it could be possible that the reset won't work when a hard drive is not fully accessible.

    I would do an installation via a disk or USB.
