    This virus is not a resident of MBR. So if you have formatted your C drive, then most probably you have removed it. But , there is a possibility that it might have copied itself to some other partition. Scan your system using Mcaffee online scan.

    :idea: I would recommend you to use NOD32 as your antivirus. It is damn effective and very light on the system resources. Also, use a firewall. ZoneAlarm is a nice one & it is free too.
