Windows 7: CMD.exe automatically executes -start command for key.exe

CMD.exe automatically executes -start command for key.exe

Hello, I was browsing the internet the other day and I've been searching for cracks for particular programs.
Yes, I know, I shouldn't have been doing that. And as and end result I got a virus named key.exe
I've deleted that file yet my cmd.exe keeps running the -start .../key.exe command.
I don't know what do to. Do I need to download a file(cmd.exe) from exefiles and replace my own cmd, or do I need to edit something through regedit?
I've also started coding in c++ making some half-life (GoldSrc) modifications. And the build process starts and when it finishes it launches cmd, which automatically runs the -start command.
It's annoying. Any help would be appreciated.
Here are some images.

There is no way to know what other viruses, trojans and malware have now embedded themselves in your system.

The only solution is to format your disk completely, then reinstall Windows 7 and all applications from scratch.

That's the price you pay for downloading cracked software.

Since your computer has been infected by a virus, there is only one sane choice: Wipe your operating system and reinstall everything from scratch. Take any data you may want to keep and just perform a clean install to ensure your system is clean again.

Already tried. Doesn't work. My only solution is to reinstall my OS.

I actually don't have an installation of windows 7.
I need to call my friend(which he has), he has to come and reinstall it.
I need a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Do you happen to have that version that I could use?
