Hey guys, I'm new at this. A few days ago I got hit with this virus. I reformated and it still won't go away. I have an external drive that includes very important files to me. I'm not sure if the virus is in there. Everytime I scan the external, it turns out fine. However, after I reformatted my computer for the 5th time.. the hacktool.rootkit virus keeps coming back. Please help.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
