Despite reformatting about five times, within five minutes of use my computer is infected with various different malware and viruses. Mrofin, mdm, virut, you name it, I've had it. I physically can't do anything useful with this thing because the moment I start even thinking about downloading any protection my system is already fundamentally broken. Amongst other things, NTVDM, generic host processes and explorer all fail eventually, so I can't install anything that is 16 bit (all my drivers), can't trust the internet to hold up, and can generally expect things to freeze at some point. Also, most installers and programs I download get chomped on before I even get chance to use them, and are destroyed.

I don't know how to reclaim my PC, this thing will survive anything. Malware programmers are the one type of person I would happily shoot.

Help?

I would try downloading the installation file for an anti-virus and save it to a CD. Then, after you reinstall Windows install the anti-virus before connecting to the internet.
