Would like an "industrial strength" virus cleaner

I've been collaborating with dozens of people nationwide.  Hundreds of files and close to a thousand url links over the past year.  Obviously, I'm wondering if there's malware that's made it on to my computer that is invisible to Malwarebytes, etc.

Currently, I run Rogue Killer every 10 days or so.  I follow this up w/ MB and MS Security Essentials.  

But, as you know, there are limits to these.  What I'm wondering is if there's a thorough cleaner/scanner out there that approaches a HD reformat.

I've heard about Linux-based programs that can boot from a CD.  Unfortunately, my cd drive is broken, so I was hoping there was something that could boot from a thumb drive.  Something related to MBAM, or whatever - a program that bypasses windows and all that stuff.

I think I tried BitDefender a while ago.  But I couldn't seem to get it to work... obscure syntax errors, etc.  

My question is whether someone can make it really easy to load a program like this onto my USB drive.
