Hi, Ive got a virus that persists even after formats, I believe I caught it from my roomate and he recently got his identity stolen, so Im pretty scared.
I was using kapersky internet security and windows 10, upgrading from Home to to Pro when I noticed everything, my main concern is that im being roped into an evil twin situation or at least having my files stolen, or technicly shared against my will.

Theres a few different things ive found out on my own, I have a background in web programming, I understand what shells are and limited cmd-line know-how like diskpart.

Persistence; it persists by a variety of ways that each install each other, or install extensions to central windows services and processes to avoid detection. The main methods of infection are dlls and registries and svchost/ntoskernel-run services that all eventually removes your authority over everything on the computer and then shares out your files.

Methods ive seen are: Binary coinstallers installed in locations where drivers are expected(probably based of hardware) like nvidia drivers. These coinstallers refer to PCI locations as devices with memory storage abilities of some kind(maybe they are virtualized objects in a shell?) There also seems to be a set of drivers installed in an "EFI Shell" and my ethernet adapter settings, accessible from bios, go like this:
Intel Gigabit 0.0 Uefi driver Adapter PBA FFFFFF-0FF. PCI ID ADDRESS MAC etc.
Theres a bunch of VPN and Network Drive / Virtual Drive / Sharing / Remote Administration / Workgroup / Domain Administration - related services and confirgurations set up, so I installed bitdefender and requeted all connections through that adapter be refused, bought a wifi one and built its profile a little more carefully.

However, my X: drive seems also affected, so I really just want someone to help me get a handle on whats happening and what I can do to log/Identify/Prevent/Wipe it.
All my files are saved and backep up, I just need a cleaning procedure for my pc and my and my roomates, and if I should do anything with my cellphones(I have 2 androids) before I go online and hunt out if anything has been opened in my name.

Im using an administrator account, disabled all others and set up strict firewall rules. Ive installed Kapersky Ccleaner MalwareBytes ProcessHacker Bitdefender and none of them come up with anything please help!

A few hundred .dll files about 2 dozen exes all extending or enabling native windows applications to run panther pester and extended shell scripts until i cant even interact with anything or log in. If i enable hidden files it reveals an extensive set or links and pointers that serve to universalize the execution of the scripts it then lauches. It has ridiculous redundance and persistence. It was harmless and i think i coexisted with it without noticing since it ran its stuff like the lan vserver it spreads by to other pcs in the overhead of my 32gb of ram. When i upgraded to pro alarms went off everywhere. Its malware is legacy and its ingress is enterprise remote management all win proprietary. Its more like im being forced into a work domain without my consent. Its had access to 10 years of my personal information however, so its gotta go and id love to know where.

Any tools you create I am assuming you are creating from a known clean computer.

You are the only one running software on this system, or your roomate is as well?

Try running a stand alone unix bootup like Parted Magic (bootable from USB or CD). From there you can zero drive information for the MBR /partition entries in case something is living there.
