Hey guys I'm back (infected win 7 64 bit). I did DBAN, as well as Wipedrive, and the virus was up the very first time I opened IE after OS reinstall. As I mentioned I intend to upgrade the HDD but now I'm worried it's somewhere else and will infect the new one immediately. Any Ideas...If you need logs I won't alter the machine afterwards.

Even if the infection was in the master boot record both of those programs would have removed it, you must have reinfected from a saved file.


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
