An alternative to MSE which is comparable is Avast. if you have 32 bit it offers a boot scan which can be scheduled on the Scan tab and is very effective. It may help clear your machine.

I would also install and run SuperAntiSpyware in Safe Mode if necessary.

Did you make note of the infections which were cleaned up earlier by WDO? It helps to tailor advanced cleanup steps to the virus, often found by googling each infection.
All i remember is that there was a "severe" virus in rosetta stone folder with a long name formed of letters and numbers. Anyway,i will try to use superantispyware in safe mode tomorrow, because now i am a little tired . Good night!

I am sorry for this 1 week delay, but i had some urgent problems to resolve first. Anyway, i scanned my pc, did not detect anything, then i ran a repair install of windows 7, still with no success. Eventually, i just reinstalled the windows, and now everything runs fine. I wonder what virus could have done such damages to my computer. Thank you for your help!
