Make sure you followed these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you'll stick with the tools and methods given you'll keep a perfect install.

In addition, if you're prone to infection like that then I'd add the paid real-time protections which Malwarebytes offers, which is how I've helped others solve chronic infection. Choose the 30-day trial when you install. It should stop you from proceeding when any malware is in the mix.
