Let's see if we can get to the root of the problem...

Please download RogueKiller:
Tlcharger RogueKiller (Site Officiel)

When you get to the website, go to where it says:
(Download link) Lien de téléchargement
Select the version that applies to your system: 32-bit or 64-bit. (See: Note (at the end))
Click the dark-blue button that applies.
Save to the Desktop.

Close all windows and browsers.
Right-click RogueKiller and select: Run as Administrator

Press: SCAN

When done, a report opens on the Desktop: RKreport.txt

Please provide the RKreport.txt (Mode: Scan) in your reply.
(Please do not delete anything!)

To find out if the system is 32 or 64 bit:
Click: Start
Type System in the Start Search box
Click System in the Programs list.

The operating system is displayed as follows:
For a 64-bit version operating system, under System > System type, it shows:
64-bit Operating System

For a 32-bit version operating system, it shows:
32-bit Operating System

Yes, do that before reformatting.

Cottonball just wants to see what the "file infector" is, so you'll be aware of it before infecting your newly reformatted disk again

Some file infectors can: They bring with them a risk for Rootkits, etc.

Formatting an existing partition doesn't rewrite the MBR...
