Okay guys so this happened out of the blue. I left my computer running while I went out for lunch, when I came back and tried to run IE, I got all sorts of runtime errors. I restarted, and then started task manager and saw that there were all sorts of new and fishy looking processing like: P001.exe, M001.exe, at2tess.exe, and a few more that I dont remember. I immediately put the thing in google and all the search results were screaming virus/trojan. i got very afraid, I had not yet recovered from this shock when aby itself a new browser windows openeed and took me to several chinese websites and before I know it my internet doesnt work anymore. Since I am no tech guy, I formatted my C drive and reinstalled windows. Hopefully its gone now even when i havent formatted D drive?
My question is can the virus return as my d drive is still like before? Also, I didnt download or run any software njor did I visit any shady website, when all this happened I am clueless as to even what might have caused it? help me pls and am I still in danger. should I run combofix and does it scan the d rive too? or does it even neeed to be scanned??

Thanks ahead guys

Your D drive is more than likely safe, but lets do a few scans.
Now, download Malwarebytes from http://malwarebytes.org/ update it and run a full scan. Remove any infections found and post the results in your next reply.

Next run a scan at http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/
