Windows 7: Doing a clean install, do I need drivers & utilities disc?

Okay, Thanks alot for the help, you guys are great! I will mark this topic as solved.
One more thing, should I erase my device management attachment? Or is it okay to keep it up. I don't know if it contains any sensitive information.

Malwarebytes.com

There is nothing sensitive in that screen shot.

Re malwarebytes: You configure it similarly to MSE. BUT---it does not provide real-time protection---which means you must periodically do manual scans--say weekly.

Update its virus definitions BEFORE you do a scan.

If you are willing to spend between 15 and 25 bucks you can get the Pro version of malwarebytes which has these advantages:

1: it does protect in real time, just like MSE
2: it updates automatically, like MSE
3: you can set it up to scan according to a schedule, like MSE.

You can buy PRO for 25 maximum from malwarebytes.com. If your google skills are slick, you can probably find a discount coupon on the web. Newegg occasionally sells it for 12 to 15 bucks.

The free version is fine, but it lacks those 3 features.

Do you have Windows Service Pack 1 installed? Be sure to get Windows updates on a regular basis.

I am back with a few questions. I want to do some troubleshooting tomorrow.
1. I am having some mouse troubles. It double-clicks when I only want it to single click. Like if I press back it goes back two pages, if I do online shopping and want to to put something in my cart, I click and it puts two of the item in my cart, or if I click to open a new tab it opens two. I thought before it was the trojan doing this, now after the reinstall it seems to be something else. Any ideas on what to do?

2. I bought the Pro version of Malwarebytes. I read online that it could clash with MSE since they both use real time protection, Is this true?

Regarding Malwarebytes Pro----no, that is not true.

I have been using both Malwarebytes Pro and MSE with no issues for a couple of years.

It is generally true that 2 realtime applications can conflict, but not in this case. They complement each other.

Regarding the mouse issue---have you investigated the mouse controls in Windows control panel?

Okay, good to know thanks.
No, I have not. The mouse was working fine and then started doing the double-clicking thing again today. What settings is is supposed to be on in the Control Panel?

I suppose certain mice have different controls than others.

But for mine, I have a control panel setting for "double click speed". There is also a setting in Windows Explorer tools/folder options where you can choose single click or double click to open a folder. These may or may not help you.
