Like an idiot, I clicked "Run As Administrator" when I meant to click "Scan For Virus" on a .exe file from a NewsGroup download in Windows 7. I have Vista on first Partition, which does not appear to be infected, but iexplor520.exe is in the root directory of the Vista installation. I restored both partitions from full backups taken the day before the accident, but the OBFUSCATOR and VIRUT infections keep getting detected by Microsoft Security Essentials every few minutes on the Windows 7 partition even after the restore, and numerous DLLs keep failing. Should I Format before restoring, and if so, how? I am sending this from the Vista side, where I am running a CA Anti-Virus scan, which hasn't found anything yet - not even the iexplor520.exe.
