I've clicked an unfortunate exe file and got infected with ton of malware (360, Kuizip something, ... tons more). I think I've managed to get rid of the malware (files, autoruns, services, registry, ...) but the last persisting thing which I cannot get rid of is the black screen with cursor on my main Windows account, meaning the once where the infection started. I can ctrl + alt + del and use a different user but the main one is done for. I can see on the spare user account that the startup tray programs load up VERY slowly like something hangs their startup.
Now the question, is there a way to get it working, or the only solution is to reinstall Windows?
I would greatly appreciate your assistance and thank you in advance.

My main account finally starts up after about 20 minutes of hanging ...
I've managed to find out that the problem is a file that recreates itself somhow in c:\Windows\Temp folder with random names (blue background, green g, black note as an icon). It also adds itself to RunOnce section every time. I cannot find a way to remove it. Please advise.
