Yes it will. Have you done any of the scans in safe mode?

Run all the scans in safe mode, restart and run them all again in regular windows.

It doesn't matter what you do, a virus can still hide a part of itself after being "deleted" Some anti-viruses (like NOD32) are great at getting rid of the whole thing, others (like Norton) suck at it. But in the end, the only way to guarantee it is gone is to re install windows.

Again, that depends on the virus, and how successful the program was in removing it. Just run everything how i told you and use the correct programs (all that were said here, except norton. Use safemode with networking if you need to go download them) and everything should be good.
