After 30 some years in this business Aawa, I would have to disagree with you (respectfully ofcourse). Anytime somebody gets into Trojan/Virus issues you never know the full extent of the corruption (i.e. registry entries, winsock, drivers, etc.) so re-partitioning and reloading is really the preferred method.
Also, often times when you find one Trojan/Virus there are usually multiple issues.
