Let's run a standalone malware remover.
Let's use the Microsoft System Sweeper.
PUT SYSTEM SWEEPER ON A USB STICK
System Sweeper, https://connect.microsoft.com/systemsweeper, allows you to start an infected PC and perform an offline scan to identify and remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware. System Sweeper is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.
Safety Scanner, Microsoft Safety Scanner - Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free, is free, downloadable, provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.
If the target computer has a working internet connection, then you may prefer to use the Safety Scanner.
Download System Sweeper (about 576 kB):
Insert 256 MB or larger USB stick into a usb port.
Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe
Choose the option to install to USB.
Caution: The install program will format the usb stick.
The install program will download about 200 mB more.
After the install is finished, leave the stick in the usb slot.
Run the program you downloaded once again.
This 2nd run, and any subsequent runs, will download the very latest anti-virus definitions (about 60 mB).
To keep System Sweeper up-to-date, simply reinsert the usb stick and run the installation program again.
The initial, full scan by System Sweeper can easily take a couple of hours, but subsequent quick scans will take only a few minutes.
Remember, your computer is being very thoroughly checked for all types of malware.
Thank you, doing this right now.

That step shouldn't fail.
Why don't you try preformatting the drive?
In other words, stick the USB stick into the computer.
WIN | DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER | right-click on area shown for the usb stick |choose Format (ntfs)
If this fails let me know.
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.
