Did I get rid of Virut.56?

I reformatted completely, but Data Execution Prevention just today closed explorer.exe, something that it never did before until I was infected. I'm not sure if this is a symptom or just a red herring, so I'm posting an HJT log. Dr. Web Cureit detects nothing on an express scan.

The scary part is, DEP closed explorer on my brother's computer once yesterday as well, and that computer was in a network for a short time (with open shared folders) with my computer while it was infected. It has been at least a week since it was connected to the infested computer, so if Virut did jump through the shared folder onto his computer it sure took a long time to incubate.

Here's HJT for my computer, I'll have HJT for his up soon.
