The hard drive spins up randomly when the computer is not in use, the system is generally slow, and occasionally on start up I have to cont-alt-del to get the mouse to respond. Basically, classic symptoms of having some sort of infection.

Running XP Home Edition, SP 3

I've tried almost every security setup available (free versions), and many will find a couple infected files. None of them clear the problem up more than temporarily.

For the record, I've run scans using Avast!, MSE, Malware bytes, SUPERAntispyware, and Spybot S&D. MSE has deleted Trojan:Win32/Comroki three times now; it keeps coming back even if I don't do anything that could get me infected again.

I'd like to avoid completely reformatting and starting over, mainly because I don't know if I have my XP install discs.
