I'm not using kaspersky and don't plan to , im using vipre , gonna do a full scan and try to fix my registry , if it still won't be fixed i'm gonna reinstall windows again.

Edit:And the firewall is blocking 1000-2000 threats per day.

Where do you think you got all this malware from? Since you say this is a new install, maybe the win7 disk or torrented apps or shady websites?

You may want to install ESET and do a scan. Not all AVs are capable of cleaning all threats.

Sometimes trying to find a virus or trojan is so time consuming it's not worth the time, you can do a clean install a whole lot faster and easier on to nerves. Then you know it's gone and your not guessing, so do yourself a favor and clean install.

I've seen some apps that looked suspicious i wanted to check them out , and my problem was mainly that i downloaded them and then installed Vipre , and yes not all AV's are capable or removing viruses but im pretty sure ESET or kaspersky or any other would do the same thing , i'm gonna reinstall the windows again i think.

Thats a good idea. If you want to test suspicious apps, do it on vmware or virtualbox or in a sandbox or on a spare computer. My personal benchmark is malwarebytes, a few times when I've been infected and MBAM fails, i know its time to reinstall.

Don't you have a clean system image backup there with you...? Anyway, you may wanna wipe your disk first prior re-installation of Windows.

Some good read here:
