Windows 7: Unknown StartUp Program

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Unknown StartUp Program

Hi I am running Windos 7 Ultimate on a HP laptop and just found this start up program. SxfRvnpy. I can't get any info on youtube or Google about it. Should I disable it on start up?
I recently tried to reinstall w7 but it would not work. I had a virus called ramnit.L and I tried several ways to get rid of it even trying to wipe the C disk from another temp partition with antoher w7 os on it. It didn't work and when I used DBAn to wipe the drive it took 20 hrs and in the end did not work. I am just wondering if this is something to do with that virus. BTW I think I managed to manaually rid myself of the virus as its no longer being detected.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

When you say Dban did not work does that mean that it did not completely wipe the drive clean? For now I would run msconfig and disable the aforementioned program. When you run your virus scan are you doing it in safe mode?

Did you change ALL passwords? Win32/Ramnit makes copies of the installer to removable drives as a random file name. Are you using an infected flash drive, or an infected backup?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Hi, thanks for the replies. I have changed as many passwords as I can think of. I ran DBAN and my OS was not touched. I made a partition and tried to format the C drive from the new partition but alas it did not work either.
I have downloaded and ran autoruns. Should I upload a screenshot?
By the way I forgot to mention I have disabled two add ons in explorer. One is Zoomdownloader tool bar and the other is solid savings. I followed a tutorial on how to manually get rid of these virus's but they are still appearing on the add on features.
Once again thanks for the help.
