Fakealert.SF trojan HELP!

I`m struggling to remove this Trojan! I have tried Windows defender, Super Anti-spyware Free, AVG free but it keeps popping back up!!

Detected threats are PC_protect[1].exe and wwp.exe all of which once removed by AVG seem to keep re-appearing.

Oh almost forgot, my OS is Windows 7 64bit!

Download the free version of Malwarebytes update it and then run it.

Ran Malwarebytes on full scan and it did find some components of the trojan but it still keeps reappearing, tricky one this!!

Any more suggestions before I format: \c?

You could try this one it is a pay for program but you get a 30 day trial and it will remove anything that it finds.
If it asks for payment ignore it and carry on with the scan.

Best bet may be to run your security programs in safe mode.
Remove anything that they find.
Then run C Cleaner.Switch of system restore and switch it back on when you reboot.
