"i have formatted the hard drive and started from scratch putting windows 7 back on and the system still wont reconize any disks"

Then it's very unlikely to be a virus problem - I never yet had a virus infection that survived a complete format & re-install of Windows, and anyway, I never heard of a virus that prevented a PC from recognising any disks.

My guess is you have a hardware problem.

However, if you are convinced it's malware, please post on the malware forum here: http://www.computing.net/forum/secu...

Be sure to tell them that you suspected a virus so you completely reformatted and re-installed Windows but still have the same problem.

I'm pretty damn sure they tell you that if it was a virus it wouldn't have survived a fresh install.
