This might be a bit too obvious
First of all, the fact that your machine is showing random charaters after autoplay and that autoplay shows up on your c drive means your OS is corrupt. The most likely cause is that your hard drive is failing. A virus would not exist after a format reinstall except in the case of old boot viruses which are very rare and near impossible on varly new machines.
I recommend that you get a new hard drive. This would also explaing the drive confussion. If you know how to fit drives your self. take out any excess drives, and just have the primary hard drive on ide 1 and the cd rom on ide 2 and do another fresh install. IF not, then get someone who knows what they are doing to scan the drive using many online tools and replace the drive in teh event that errors are found
