Default w32.jeefo

I got the w32.jeefo virus yestarday and I have been trying to clean stuff up for 2 days now. I had norton antivirus and I ran a virus scan, quantined the files it recommended me to and deleted them. That didnt change anything. My hard-drive is still full because I guess this virus makes the files larger. I have 1.49 gb left on my computer, and this is after I have reformated. I thought if i reinstalled windows that would atleast take care of the virus, I have all my important files backed up on cd. I guess I was wrong. It did nothing. Hopefully someone can tell me how to fix this and get these files back to normal size so I can go on with my life. Thanks!

i believe i got the virus taken care of.....but my files are still huge. i tried reformating and that was the weirdest thing of it all. It didnt delete the files....they are still in the C drive when you go into my computer, but the reformat took them off of the desktop and start menu, cleared my favorites. the reformat seemed to delete some stuff, but not all of it. can someone please help!
