Hi, my pc recently got a virus and i REFORMATTED my whole pc which i thought would get rid of it. When i reformatted i downloaded AVG and malwarebytes both and it seems that i still have something. I think.... AVG keeps popping up with these threat detection pop ups and the file name is like c:/Documents and settings/networkservice/blahblahblah and the virus identified says "Worm/adup" I dont kno what is going on or how to get rid of it because im doing lots of computer scans with avg and malware both and it found something once which i got rid of but its not finding anything now. But i keep getting those pop ups about the "Worm/adup infection threat thing. Help plz
