I've been having some really bad virus problems... I tried avg, avast, malwarebytes, spy doctor, Pretty much everything i could find, but im still having problems.

Yes, reinstalling your OS will get rid of the virus, along with everything else.

Surest way is of course to reformat. But in a specific way.. or those viral forms will migrate from memory back to the drive!
Begin by deleting all partitions.. then shut down with none formed, and restart. Then form new partitions as needed and do a reinstall. Should be a clean finish.
Do not go on-line for any reason, until you have your anti-virus and firewall programs installed. They can be obtained from another known-safe system.
