Yesterday MSE found 48 files infected with Ramnit, it tried to clear them but on every restart it was still finding more and more, I tried MBAM but that found nothing, after searching google it was recommended to format and reinstall Win 7 which I have done (I didn't back anything up).
Only problem is I have a network drive that was orginally mapped/connected to the Ramnit infected PC, how can I tell if it has spread to this network drive? This drive has a lot of stuff I need.
Also what programs should I use to prevent this in the future? I was using MSE and browsing with Firefox when I mistyped an URL and popups came up (They got past Adblock Plus) thats when Security Essentials said I was infected, it was downhill from there.

Thanks for any help.

Hello, please re post your question with a DDS log so we can see what is happening.

We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
