Sony vaio laptop returning virus

I have a Sony Vaio laptop which keeps getting a trojan everytime you reconnect to the internet after deleting the offending item with the antivirus.
I have tried several different Antiviruses, Anti-spyware which always remove it fine but keeps coming back.
I have tried disabling system restore, again with no effect.
The antiviruses seem to think origin is in Windows 32 sustem.
Look forward to hearing from anyone who can help

Desktop keeps looping

try ctrl and alt buttons together and tap delete, this will bring up the running systems/cpu usage. look for anything that is not a well known program and stop it running. It is going to take some time to find what is causing it to loop but you will then be able to delete the offending program. Or buy a decent virus/Trojan program.

Reboot without disk

well, firstly having trojans on your computer shouldnt be reason enough to reinstall the whole OS especially if they arent affecting you computer to such an extent that you cant even install other applications. So what you could try and do, install or update your antivirus, Run a scan and see if that changes anything. If you're not sure what antivirus will do the job, visit and get their free tool, it allows you to run scans during start-up, so if you have an trojans that are locked into memory, during start-up they can be removed.
As for running an new installation, You could get a more recent version of the OS your using and you could run an 'Upgrade' installation, it leaves all your programs intact.

Hi there I would tell you why:
1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time

so you could not setting any more to get improved.

Install an updated full version of antivirus. Your antivirus might-be-out of date. I recommend you to use avast or avg 8. They will remove all the viruses they detect from your system. But remember to install only one antivirus because installing more than one antivirus can clash down your computer. After installing the new antivirus, scan your computer and delete all the detected viruses. Delete also your temporary internet files, cookies, cache,etc. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Go to Start, Control Panel.
  • Network and Internet Connections
  • Internet Options
  • In the Browsing History, click Delete...
  • Delete Browsing History box appears, Click Delete All button found at the bottom.
  • Reboot your computer.
