Yes. Flash Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it to help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files

Your decision as to what action to take should be made by reading and asking yourself the questions presented in the "When should I re-format?" and What Do I Do? links I previously provided. As I already said, in some instance the malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them and your system cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. Wiping your drive, reformatting, and performing a clean install of the OS or doing a factory restore with a vendor-specific Recovery Disk or Recovery Partition removes everything and is the safest action but I cannot make that decision for you.
Should I burn my data to cd and reformat?

No but it can supplement it. I use both myself. Threatfire would probably be overkill.
Can spyware terminator with realtime protection(free)replace malwarebytes (registered version)?
Too many false positives IMO.
How about a squared anti malware?
