As there was a virus attack, yo ushould have performed a clean installation formatting the entire C drive, as described in STEP 7 of the tutorial Clean Install Windows 7 .

At first, try Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot , and if failed still, try ... Clean Install Windows 7 .

Rather than a low-level format try deleting your partition (s) during the clean install procedure, and then create a new partition to install Windows on.

What are you using as your installation media? OEM disc? Retail disc? Downloaded ISO?
