you haven't dealt with too many viruses have you? some load themselves into the boot registry and rename themselves and reload every time you start your computer. sometimes an unconditional format is the only way to kill a virus. one really nasty one requires a physical reset (opening case and moving pins) to totally wipe it off.
actually 17 an IT professional that is well versed in the operating system and in reverse engineering of malware/virus software can completely eradicate the problem from the computer. I have done it numerous times. while it does take more time to complete the knowledge gained is well worth it in most cases. plus it goes a long way in helping to prevent future infection.
