    There are websites that focus on malware removal.

    Which of them had you opened threads?

    Which malware software had you installed?

    Which malware software had you used via USB?

    Was the Windows installation from a USB Windows iso that had been created on or off the network?

    Hi there,

    That depends on the Virus type. Viruses have many types like trojan horses, worms, bohos, bootkits, rootkits, spyware, adware, etc.

    Formating is much related to the file system. Quick Formating resets the file system lead-out so the host os assumes no files on it ignoring the fact the file is wiped or not. Standard Formatting will wipe the file too or override with scramble data.

    You can try the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool 64-bit and see if that is helpful
