No one virus program can eliminate all viruses... some are good for some, others are good for others.
Hijack this is a wonderful tool for removal of trojans. Firstly though I would recomend reading how to use it.
If you still get plagued, and you've come to the decision that you want to simply format and start over, you should look into burning a copy of linux
knoppix. It's a version of linux that runs from CD. It will start itself, you don't need to set it up at all, it's VERY easy to use.
Start up in knoppix, and copy the files you want to keep onto another disk. That way the trojans cant see the disk to be copied to, and they cant copy
to it. Saves you from having a repeat episode.
Knoppix is wonderful to keep around too. you never know when windows is going to fail you. Knoppix wont run all your programs, but at least you can
still get on the internet to ask for help.
