    . . . . please explain more about the virus and what you're doing.

    if you reformatted your computer and the virus didn't go away, well (simply put) you didn't really reformat.

    Or you got it back by running the same program/email that put it on there the first time.

    Try getting Hijack this and letting us know what all it detects.

    You're installing some program that is loading this explored. Maybe a cutsie weatherbug type thing, or a game, or a "freeware utility"
