Usually the threats are contained in your System Restore restore data if they aren't being scanned, because virus scanners cannot access System Restore data.

Turn off System Restore and this will delete all the restore data which at the same time will eradicate all the viruses contained within it.

Now do a full system scan & when your system is declared clean you can re-enable System Restore.

In future, after a virus is found and removed, you should always turn off System Restore to delete all Restore Data then turn it on again, otherwise you will just bring the virus back when you use System Restore to recover from a problem.
