IMHO a clean wipe is the only way to make sure a rootket virus is gone.
Nice post, Layback Bear. If you need help with the clean all command through diskpart, see Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command for cleaning the drive.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
 
 

Ok everything is up and running now. Went XP then 7 ultimate. I have disk scrubber im going to run on the open space to clear everything that could be remaining.

I'm using Avast as my active protection and webroot just incase.

Question, is bitdefender better than the two I've mentioned? Besides Norton 360 2012, which is the best out of what I've mentioned?

I have seen bitdefender cause blue screen crashes, Avast is also known to cause blue screen crashes on some systems, and Norton is known to cause blue screen crashes on some systems. You may want to look at the setup proposed by panais in Good and Free system security combination. as it is a good, free security setup. Give panais rep if you use it.

Ccleaner has a hard drive free space cleaner that will also wipe $Recycle Bin.
$Recycle Bin is where things go when you delete them. They will stay there until they are wrote over or are cleaned out with a program.
I would also recommend Good and Free system security combination.
as writhziden has.
