I'm in dire need of help. MSE picked up multiple infections of Cycbot.B and Cycbot.G, as well as Fareit.gen!C, Iframe.AC, and Fareit over the last few days. I also noticed a few .exe's named things like 69A.exe and AAE.exe in the running Processes when MSE first notified me of the Cycbot infections; MSE took care of them a bit later. I wasn't worried at first but now I am.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, firewalled with Windows Firewall. I ran a full scan with MSE last night but new ones popped up again this morning.
Can someone help me figure out what next steps I should take? This is my personal laptop and I have personal info of all kinds on here. I'd like to avoid doing a complete re-format as I've never done it before, but if I have to in order to keep using this computer I'm willing to do so.
Also, should I back up my files now, or would backing them up just infect whatever else I use?
Thanks for your help. Could really use it.

Moved from Win 7 to Am I Infected.
