Hi all--

Basically, due to an install disk error, I noticed that during my reinstall of windows 8 an admin account was created during startup, and that scripts disabling various windows functions were being run. Mainly through blind luck, I was able to get to the admin login during startup, as after startup it was hidden and there was no trace of it. So I restarted windows via that account with a command prompt, opened diskpart and ran clean all. My question: should this be enough to wipe the virus out? It was pretty much the only thing I could think of, as all normal processes had been locked out to me if I logged in regularly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
