Default virus question

I have a test PC in which I download things to make sure they are not infected with a virus. The first thing the PC does is run a fast scan of trojan remover and today it found vundo virus and found 4 infected files which it removed from the registry and whereever else. I am now running super antispyware pro to make sure it is clear of any infected files. I then plan on running spybot s @ D to see if it finds anything.

The question I have for you is do you think it will be safe to use or do I need to reinstall the OS to ensure it is not infected?

cheers

PS... I use this PC to test things before I put them on my primary PC.

Once everything turns up clear after the spyware/trojan scans, it should be safe. No need to reinstall the OS.

You should be more careful about where you get your filez from.
