Hi,
Clean install and already a scan picked a virus ?
Have you scanned what ever device you're transferring files from to the new install ?

Otherwise you probably have a rootkit on the device with your files and or the hdd you're installing on.
Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here post #7,
Ignore the title of the thread,

On the BleepingComputer site use the button that looks like this,


You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan and make sure you check the option in the setting to scan for Rootkits.

Post All scan results.

Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,

SAS is safe to remove anything it finds
