you got it all wrong, you don't throw the computer out of the window,(though this would work too) you throw windows out of your computer and your done with the problem

But what anti-spyware/anti-virus/firewalls/other security software do you have? It would be good to have at least firewall, an anti-virus and 2 anti-spyware things. Then when they are updated boot into safe mode and do a scan. You might also want to have a look for suspicious things at start -> run -> cmd -> startup. Just google all of the processes and google will tell you what program they are associated with.

Sounds to me like you have a backdoor trojan. It allows the hacker to gain access to your machine and just start downloading crap. You need antivirus and enable the windows firewall ASAP.

Also, what have you downloaded since the reformat?
