Win32 Sality Worm Virus Complete Removal Instruction

When the Worm Win32 Sality strike into my computer, it causes me headache. All uncompressed  executable file I have save to my computer were all infected and can’t used anymore. But the real problem wasn’t stop there, all the computer connected in the network were also infected.
At that time of infection, there are limited updates and removal tool available in the web and most of the tools were only  good for prevention (not those computer already infected).
The thing I did at that time was isolate the infected computer in the network ad backup all important files (win32 sality was not include at backup). Then I  Format and reprogram the computer; install and update antivirus definitions.

This solution comes into my mind  because its the fastest way to remove the win32 sality worm rather than removing entries in Windows Registry.
