Well a virus wouldn't be a virus if it doesn't do any damage. But in reality it doesn't really do any damage, like any computer program a virus is also a program that has a set of commands that it will do once it has been activated, and it's primary goal is to stay active even if it is detected it's gonna create variants of itself. A typical infection is actually caused a 1 or several virus, you see 55 infections but this may only be caused by 5 -10 viruses the other infections are just variants. It seems like the virus has been able to fortify itself inside your windows core system shutting down all possible ways that it could be deleted.
To fix this problem you'll need to take out your hard drive and put in another computer as a slave drive. Make sure that computer has up to date virus definitions and make sure that you do the virus scanning in safe mode.
