b.exe, etc virus

Dell / XPS M1530

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 1.667 GHz / 2045 MB
Hello, I previously posted a message this week concernng the b.exe and possibly other viruses on my computer. I was asked to download and run a full scan using Avira, which I did. The scanner found a multitude of viruses on my laptop and seemed to have cleared most of them, however I still have windows explorer trying to open multiple pages and I continue to disable internet explore using the Task Manager. Now, when this happens Avira pops up a window saying that it detected a virus and I tell it to move said virus into the quarantine. So, in short, I still have malware that is somehow still not being detected.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Well you might also need top scan the partitions as well.

I'm gonna run a scan of recovery drive (D:) on the assumption that thats all the partitions on my harddisk. If there are any hidden partitions, I'm not sure how to find them and scan them...that's it except a feux drive using daemon tools.
The recovery drive scan found nothing, however Avira is still picking up the same virus on occasion...
so, im pretty sure it's hiding from the AV or is duplicating itself upon detection, and I'm not using a flash disk or anything that might be putting the virus back in, I'm actually nervous to put attach an ipod for fear the virus might somehow copy itself to its hard drive.
So, are there perhaps any other options?...

I should add that avira just detected another different virus in the avira4\temp file...so is the AV infected now? I found another string for getting rid of the Vrundo virus and I think I might try that, the only problem is that Im getting virus's with multiple different names, so searching for only one seems counterproductive, as this thing seems to spread the more you try to kill it....

Uhh, well, after being recommended on a previous post here that was removed but which was on the same issue, Ive been using Avira almost exclusively, but on my PC Ive got Avira, Avast, and AVG. My AVG didn't detect anything at all and I downloaded the other two AVs at the recommendation of a forum and someone on this site.
It may be bad, but Ive gone through my registry using safe mode, disabling the windows shell, and trying to get rid of the virus manually by searching out all the names it has been using, (all of which seem to be a string of eight letters, consonant, vowel, consonant, etc.) I used killbot to delete the files out of my ProgramFiles directory and System32 directory. I then used C-cleaner to rid all my temp files. After starting it back up, in Normal mode, I got two errors that two of the virus files did not load up properly (named dopejujo.dlland dazuyelu.dll), but these are just two of the...13 i think different dll files its been using.
Also, I keep trying to run Kaspersky online virus scan but I get the error message as follows : " [ERROR: java.lang.NullPointerException] ".
Now, I think i deleted some of the virus files, however, it seems to generate new names and there something in the logon files that is still trying to access them, and I figure it could have easily replicated itself.
I have figured out that it is some variant of the Vundo Virus, but its different that some of them, a new one and tricky as hell. If I could get help running Kaspersky, that would be awesome, and if there's anything else that could be recommended. I hate messing around in my registry because im not that pc savvy and Im not doing anything that I don't feel comfortable with...but still...registry scares.
I'm really trying to fix this without reformatting, i cant really go through and save a lot of files I have here....
Any more help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Well I think you should try to stick to one AV on your system. The multiple antivirus on your system creates problems. So you must only have on the system.
