Virus/Trojan keeps coming back?

Hi,

I have an amazingly annoying problem which keeps coming back (even after windows format), I keep getting errors which wont allow me to start,open,delete,install files. Just messes up the whole system.
The errors are:
When I want to install program - Nothing happens OR Internal Error: Failed to expand shell folder constant "userappdata"
When I want to start program - Nothing happens OR mpr.dll is missing OR netutils.dll is missing
If I want to delete a program - "An error occurred while trying to uninstall program. It may have already been uninstalled"
Startup programs won't start - netutils.dll is missing OR mpr.dll is missing

I did a fresh install on my SSD, everything was working great but after couple of days it came back.
What's going on here?

Sounds like a bad installation. Where did you get your Windows 7 installation media from?

Hi,
I've got the installation media from here since I lost my disc.

Now I get the following error message whenever I try to run most programs (in this example, Chrome).
C:\Windows\system32\profapi.dll or PROPSYS.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error...

This is so annoying, I don't understand what's wrong. I don't want to format YET AGAIN...

Yes, always best to wipe using the CLEAN command, then format, then install.

Did the CLEAN command, downloading windows.
You sure it's just bad installation and not a virus or something?

How would I know? I never said it was a virus, you suggested it in your thread title.

Wiping, formatting and reinstalling will take care of either possibility.
