hello to all

i have recently been provided with a broadband connection for my home pc and on october 4 when i opened google on firefox some thing went wrong.

a yellow face started moving in on my screen and windows explorer task was disabled. when i opened my computer from a shortcut i found 1000 folders named I-----AM A VIRUS in each of my partitions. i tried to counter the problem by formatting my main partition [which has windows installed on it] and installing a fresh copy of it. i only used mcafee's firewall before

but now after all that is done i still get errors [i have also installed the virus protection now] and when chatting on any messenger it automatically sends messages to other contacts. also i am experiencing a lot of problems. my mcafee security center doesn't open. i get a trojan warning of some VBS in a index[1].htm file
also my task manager is said to be disabled by administrator.

the messages it send via msn and yahoo messenger is "Download free MP3s : http://nsl-school.org?id=music << "and similar to them

also firefox doesn't work anymore for me [i can't browse any site on it] and i haven't had one problem when i used to have a dialup
don't know what to do plz plz plz help me
