from Vista to new Install of windows 7

If I have a spyware in my Vista and I install Windows 7 will the problem go away? or will it transfer to the new OS? I have the new Windows 7 program but I just wanted to ask this question before I make the upgrade.

Back up your files to quarantine, then don't access them again until they are scanned with Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download and your AV.

Boot the Win7 DVD, choose Custom Install, during Steps 6 and 7 of Clean Install Windows 7 delete all partitions and create new one(s) as you wish, format, install to first partition.
