No you dont have to format your pc. Lets start with this. Go to start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, click disable all, it will ask you to reboot. Go ahead. When you boot back up, run ad aware and spybot. You should get a lot more entries. Also, delete your cookies and TFS, and delete your prefetch folder in c:\windows.

Go to your c drive, program files, look for the folder or a folder similar to the word search, or look for a folder that you know is not a program you installed and delete it. If it wont let you delete it, rename it. If it still wont let you, tell me this, go to taskmanager and post a picture of the processes...
