well here's the logic.
You had malware.
system restore was running (and saving the malware so you could restore it if you wanted)
so any restore points you go to that are before the time you cleaned, will just re-infect you.
Second point, you ran the recovery cd. (which is *supposed* to format and reinstall your operating system)
Looks like your going to have to bite the bullet..
Write down all the apps that you had before, and backup anything you have thats important.
re-run the recovery cd, and choose the destructive option.
once that's done.
Hardwire connect to your router, and either; reset your security, or grab your encryption key.
(an easy way to reset your router is to hold a toothpick in the reset button on the back for 30 seconds)
if you grabbed the encryption key, disconnect the ethernet cable and try to connect to the router via wifi, and enter your key. (remember, its cAsE sensitive)
if you reset your router, you should be able to connect without any problem, just make sure to go through and set your wifi security up again.
