hello m new to this forum and this is my first post so sorry for any mistakes. so m here becoz my desktop is seriously infected by a virus which is not removing even after a clean format and reinstall.this virus doesnt let me install any antivirus i have tried avg,avast and bitdefender so far.also sometime ago i managed to run avast and avast also deleted all the viruses and also the scan completed with no virus found but after some days the windows started hanging up and started giving me bsods and same things started happening. also i ran malwarebytes which identified that virus as trojen.malpack.gen a exe file which changes its name everytime and also autorun.inf file (i tried deleting them manually but failed). malwarebytes didnt succesfully removed it. this virus doesnt let me boot in safe mode and gives runtime errors on many applications like 3ds max,logitech gaming software,ccleaner etc. and also it infects every usb drive i connect to it. my antivirus on laptop (norton internet security) detects it and deletes it so my laptop is not infected by it thankfully.also this virus makes many badsectors in my hard disk and thus makes my windows files and other important files faulty and corrupt and after some days or so the windows also stops booting(giving me lots of bsod's of corrupt windows files). so guys plz help me i wasted almost a month fixing it but failed everytime removing the virus
so far i have tried these things
1.) reinstalling windows xp pro
2.) quick formatting and low level formatting of hard disk
3.) rewriting mbr (in case that virus infected my mbr)
4.) running checkdisk
5.) avast boot time scans ( it fixed the problem for some days but the virus came back)
i have also attached an image of how actually that virus looks like
