Hum aka thats a lot of partitions - well for me it is so what is each one used for please.

Oh and thanks for the specs mate it really does make a difference knowing what we are working with.

Now I don't know what anyone else thinks but the first target in the wood pile would (nice pun) be that HDD. Plus as Layback says any sticks or cards you may have plugged in.

I would delete your temp files 1st

Delete Windows 7 temporary files and recover real estate.

Then I would scan with Windows defender Offline

Windows Defender Offline

You can also scan with Malwarebytes in safe mode. Removing the offending temp files does not mean the problem is gone, this is why you want to scan with several programs (I can suggest MBAM, SuperAntispyware, Emsisoft Antimalware).

And you have deleted the temp files? The Windows Defender Offline scans outside of windows. I still suggest using it after you delete the temp files. A Guy

If following the suggestions from A Guy and others doesn't fix this, where did you get your Win 7 dvd?
Is the Win 7 DVD a genuine MS Win 7 install DVD?
Is your Win 7 OS activated and updated with all the latest MS updates?

Layback Bear asked about this in post #5.
Maybe i missed something but i don't see an answer to the question
"Where/wheir did you get your copy of Windows 7 and by what method?"

Your post #10 says "and i guess my windows dvd is not infected".
Are you sure?

Hum Guy do you reckon a Cleaner would get rid of some of the crap too?

Yes, CCleaner will remove most of the temp files as well. A Guy

Maybe a Ccleaner would help, but i would not trust a system where the OP said in Post #3
"I have even tried formatting the c: drive and reinstalling windows, but yet the problem continues...."

Can a clean install carry forward malware in a temp file from a prior install?
If that's possible, it's scary !

My Temp folder is pretty big
http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/5869/hugetemp.jpg My windows partition is 100 GB and I always was curios how did it get full, I wonder if it's normal to have a 40GB temp folder, and what would happen if I delete it? All the files that I need are saved, so I guess nothing will be loss.
