reinfect immediately after a clean start

Specs: Windows vista
A computer running on windows vista was infected by a redirect virus (coupon V6 or something like that) the c drive was completely wiped and windows reinstalled along with AVG 2011, immediately it was wirelessly re connected the internet (2 or 3 other computers share this connection) it was reinfected. At least 2 of the other computers have the same virus. What is happening please?

Depends, if the partition was deleted and re-done when the computer was wiped it would definitely kill the virus. BUT if you don't delete the partition and simply re-install the operating system, some viruses can still remain. Wiping the computer means different things to different people. I think though the real culprit here maybe a worm or a rootkit that is reinfecting machines from your other infected when you connect back to the internet, the other systems are re-infecting the one you wiped. Update your virus software, and malware scanners, disconnect all computers from the internet and try to clean up each unit.
