Reformat is done. I'm going to get Avast now. I've made sure to disable Windows Defender, as per your suggestion (unchecked real time protection and administrator boxes, then saved).

I ran Avast and of course it didn't find any threats, but it did alert me to a couple of issues with my wireless router (update password and upgrade the router firmware). It even opened my router settings screen for me. That was pretty cool.
