    Might be time to reformat and reinstall.

    Based on your past posts and previous virus problems I suggest you get a proper anti-virus program and watch were you put your pendrive.

    You could also try a bootable antivirus (CD).

    These boot directly from a CD without using the Windows installation on the infected PC, so nothing is running to block or conceal files from the scanner.

    It can then do a full scan of the infected machine. With some infections it's the only alternative to a re-install

    There are quite a few, you need to do the download on a 'clean' PC and burn the .iso image to a CD. (Use 'imageburn' if you don't have other CD writer software).

    One I've specifically used is 'Dr Web' - this seems able to remove viruses from files rather than just deleting things as many do, so your machine has a decent chance of still working after the scan..

    A list with a few of the other available CD images is here:

    Obviously, you need to download a fresh image to get updates.
