lol ! windows defender, forget about that ! Anti-virus is so limited.

What you need is something that will look deeper and remove all types of MALWARE, not just virus infection.

Personally I use AVIRA (paid for, AVIRA Premium) combined with Malware Bytes and SuperAntiSpyware + hijackthis these will look depeer and remove any residues or things left behind / undetected by other programs. You need good protection to stop those malware before they infect in the first place....and even more importantly, a good firewall protecting not only incoming BUT outgoing as well. Try looking at your task manager and look for any unusual processes still running - if you are not sure, report here to take a look at it, or search for the process name in google. If you are using the right combination of software, you might not have to reformat after all - :D Never had to.
