Yesterday at around 8:00AM (According to the email log) someone obtained my email and World of Warcraft account passwords. My World of Warcraft account was banned (Still working on getting it restored) so I changed all of my passwords on a seperate cpu. After that, I used my system recovery disc to reformat my computer. Once the reformatting was complete, I installed and ran virus scans on these programs:

edit: Currently using Microsoft Windows XP - Home Edition - Service Pack 3

Avast! Anti Virus (Found nothing)
Spybot search and destroy (Found a trojan which was removed, hasn't shown up since)
Advanced system care (Found nothing)
Ad-aware (Found nothing)
Malwarebytes (Found nothing)
Windows Defender (Found nothing)
Blacklight rootkit remover (Found nothing)

Restarted my CPU and ran all of these programs again one by one just to double check, but nothing was found. However, I just can't shake the feeling that the keylogger is still lurking somewhere on my computer. Once my account is restored on WoW, I want to ensure that this does not happen again. So my question is:

What are the chances the keylogger is still in my system?

If you think there is a good chance it is, where do I go from here?

All help is appreciated (I'm becoming paranoid because of this) and thanks for taking the time to read this.
