Welcome to BC !
One pass is all that is needed using Free DBAN to overwrite the drive and eliminate any chance of malware survival.
Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN automatically and completely deletes the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.
DBAN's website is http://www.dban.org/.How to Use DBAN to Securely Erase a Hard Disk Drive
EDIT: If you prefer, and likely a faster DBAN install, you can create a bootable flash drive.
QUOTE: Run DBAN from a Flash Drive: In the following tutorial, we show you how we created a DBAN USB Flash Drive from Windows using our third party Universal USB Installer. Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) is a simple bootable data destruction tool created by Darik Horn. It can be used to securely wipe an entire hard drive or an attached external disk (IDE or SCSI), completely deleting all contents of the disk. Upon completion, you should be able to run DBAN from your USB device.

You can try having the malware removed by posting a new topic in the malware removal forum.
Follow these instructions for doing that: Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs
Once you have posted your new topic DO NOT bump your topic....wait for a response. It could be several days.
