    yeah.

    here's some bad luck: i reinstalled windows (and in processes deleted and made anew my windows partition on the windows drive that has no other partitions) and without having the data drive connected at any time, it got infected again. i mean i was just messing with some things and hadn't updated windows (it had avast, spybot, and za) but that's kinda odd. i did connect one of my USB junk drives with some installs on it, but just long enough to get them off, and it's stuff like avast, spybot, mbam, za, etc. and it was on the internet, but just sites about writing code/batch files.
    i mean it's one thing for it to get infected again, but it just seems odd to me that it was the same thing. I just reinstalled windows again, so it doesn't needed cleaned, but that's still kinda crazy.

    Well, we have no choice, but start all over...

    Print these instructions out.

    NOTE. If any of the programs listed below refuse to run, try renaming executive file to something else; for instance, rename hijackthis.exe to scanner.exe

    ***VERY IMPORTANT! Make sure, you update Malwarebytes before running the scans.***


    STEP 1. Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php to your desktop.
    (Malwarebytes is free to use as a manual scanner. Payment is only required if you wish to have it run and update automatically which is not necessary for our purposes)

    * Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    * At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
    * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    * Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    * When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
    * Post the log back here.

    The log can also be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
    Or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt

    RESTART COMPUTER!

    STEP 2. Download GMER: http://www.gmer.net/files.php, by clicking on Download EXE button.
    Alternative downloads:
    - http://majorgeeks.com/GMER_d5198.html
    - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Interne...ers/GMER.shtml
    Double click on downloaded .exe file, select Rootkit tab and click the Scan button.
    When scan is completed, click Save button, and save the results as gmer.log
    Warning ! Please, do not select the "Show all" checkbox during the scan.
    Post the log to your next reply.

    RESTART COMPUTER

    STEP 3. Download HijackThis:
    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis/download
    by clicking on Installer under Version 2.0.2
    [DO NOT download version 2.0.3 (beta)]
    Install, and run it.
    Post HijackThis log.
    NOTE. If you're using Vista, or 7, right click on HijackThis, and click Run as Administrator
    Do NOT attempt to "fix" anything!


    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    If you performed clean Windows install, then no.
    Unless you're having some issues.
