Download DDS from one of these links:
Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--this will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your new topic.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.

Here's the information on a complete wipe of the Hard Disk Drive.


After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media, use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive.
  • Then if you do not want to create the new Windows 7 "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #2 to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to do the installation to.
  • If you do want to create the "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #3 to create, format and mark Active the System Reserved partition and then create and format the 100GB partition to do the installation to.
Either way, running the "clean all" then creating and formatting the partition(s) using diskpart will get you the best possible space to do a clean install of Windows 7 to; you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD / SSD or create additional partitions after the installation completes if you choose.

I've already formatted it was still their.

I dont think wiping would do much...

I'll try the MalwareBytes.

A format does absolutely nothing ...

Have a look at what a wipe actually is at this link. secure erase

Contrary to popular belief, doing a format with Windows 7 does not remove any data at all, it just checks for sector errors and marks the space to be over-written as needed, all the data is still there including all the code from previous/failed installation attempts.

Do you want to have a clean Windows or do you want to continue to have issues.

It will over-write everything on the entire HDD, that's the whole idea, it's all infected anyway.


Make back-ups of anything you need to save to external media first and do good malware scans of the data before you add it back to the new installation.
