I have this seemingly unbeatable malware called hard drive diagnostic. It is basically a program that hides all desktop icons, removes all program files shortcuts, installs crap on your computer, hides all the folders in "my computer" and pretends to be a crappy antivirus.


I have tried following this guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-hard-drive-diagnostic


It worked fine once, I started the malware program which eliminated the adware files, restarted the computer and found the same malware files again. Now I can no longer run Rkill or MBAM, not even off of a usb drive.


Any other suggestions before I start formatting my hard drive?
