Windows 7: .exe programs appearing, antivirus & disk defrag unresponsive

.exe programs appearing, antivirus & disk defrag unresponsive

Hi,

I think I may have a worm in my hard drive as .exe programs keep appearing in my drive - zozoz/jejej/mimim/roror etc. I am also unable to successfully download any scan software for McAfee. Originally had norton 360 and it became unresponsive - not opening. Disk Defrag is also refusing to run.

What should I do? wipe my hard drive and re-install the operating system? Windows 7 64 bit (2009) is what I am currently running.

Cheers
