The virus must be hiding somewhere. The OP will have to pay attention to when it reappears.

System32.exe seems like a virus to me (Read comments down on this page: system32.exe Windows process - What is it?). You must have formatted only one of your partitions ( probably C: ) during Windows 7 installation. The malware is probably resides on some other partition which can easily infect your system again. Use MalwareBytes to clean your system along with a good anti virus software.
