In order to assure that all remains are removed you need to wipe the drive with a utility like Derik's Boot and Nuke, this will completely overwrite the hdd.

Have you read my post? I have data in the hard disks I want to back up but without any extra spyware\viruses that could be looming around.. Boot and nuke is not a solution

I would suggest you post a topic in the Am I Infected forum where you can receive the proper type of care.
