At this point I would copy out my files using Installation DVD/Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or Paragon Rescue CD.

Then clean reinstall booting Installation DVD, choose Custom Install, then Drive Options to delete all partitions, create new as you wish, then format before install to first partition after 100mb SysReserved: Clean Install Windows 7

Just to be sure due to the infection you can wipe your HD of all code before installing: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Then adapt these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
