Default virus' on hard drive

I didn't really know where to put this, so, sorry if it is in the wrong place.

I have a lot of virus' on my computer it seems. I downloaded trojan guarder gold and it sems if I run it daily it removes 3-5 torjans/virus'. I think they are the sameones. I have this one called coolsearch, it really pisses me off..... Can someone tell me how to get these off of my computer forever?
Thank you.

Well for starters you can start by using a better AV software like Norton AV or PCCillian. If you cannot get rid of the virii by using an AV software, then i would start consdiering a reformat.
