Well Im not wiping it all!
It has 3 os.. I can't just reinstall the stuff.. And I need xp for work.. Just to be on the "safe side" isn't it unlikely to spread?
They are 2 different hard drives and 3 partitions

Hi,

I agree with the clean install. Since we have no idea what you are infected with, its very hard to recommend anything else. As to your other OS's, who knows.......its your decision. If I was in your shoes, I'd clean the lot.

Follow the advice about credit card, and also....on a known uninfected computer, change all your account passwords for email, banking etc.

Regards,
Golden

I formatted my partition completely. I'm 99.9% sure it didn't spread..
I got to the virus before it spread I believe..
Hoping it's fixed!

According to MS, MSE will not play nice with others. So you might want to choose between MSE, Kaspersky, or Avast, and do not keep the others for on demand scanning.
For on demand you can use Malwarebytes free, SAS free, Hitman pro free, or Emsisoft free.
