Use Ubutu on a disk or usb drive to format your hard drive.
You can also try the dos command format or you download hijackthis to find it. Well, you can use regedit to search for it in (if the folders exist):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
in the folders:
Active Desktop
Attachments
Explorer > Run
NonEnum
Ratings
System > UIPI > Clipboard > ExceptionFormats

Also try Spybot S&D to search for it.
Other commands to delete the virus.

del /f /s /q /a :r :h :i :s :a :l Drive/:Name.*

To remove a virus manually, first identify the virus:
Upload your suspected file to VirusTotal. If it is a virus, use a data shredder software to delete it.
Most common places for malware to hide:
c:/Users/<YourUsername>/ (and subfolders)
Startup folder (type shell:startup in run)
Temp folder (type %temp% in run)
and so many more... but using AV software is the easiest. If not use hitman pro

It is the best virus scanner out there (even better then malwarebytes <which i also recmmand>)
