I recently contracted a Komodia rootkit (and 100 other malware, spyware, adware, etc.) by being an idiot and imaging a virtual disk with DAEMON tools Lite. 

 

I've run multiple virus scans with Anti-Malwarebytes but are still getting few problems (such as Hijack.hosts popping up every now and then.) I've also ran Adwcleaner a couple of times on Chrome and the System.

 

What I am planning to do is to Factory Reset my Laptop (mine is a Lenovo, I have no idea how to do it but i'l try) because I copied the files I needed onto my USB. What I am worried is that this rootkit is something that will stay even if I do a complete Factory Reset. Would it? Any help on the Komodia Rootkit or information will be much appreciated.
