Oke i'm going to keep it short, few of my accounts got hijacked by a keylogger. F*** my life.

Anyhow, i formatted all my harddrives (os ssd, hdd) and did a clean windows install.
Obviously i also changed all my passwords.

Can i assume it's gone or?

Thanks in advance...

No.
The malware could be hiding on a USB drive, or anything that you have ever connected to your network just waiting for the chance to re-install itself.
You need to have an up to date anti-virus solution in place, and even that may be no guarantee.

Only USB deviced i've had connected during the time around the keylogger were periphals like keyboards and mice. Even though it can get in there i highly doubt it, the keylogger didn't same THAT professional. I have Avast anti virus on my PC up to date running now + malwarebytes.
The only thing is neither microsoft security essentials or malwarebytes could detect the keylogger before i whiped my PC...

I have considered that but the keylogger didn't seem that professional + whiping my bios is going to be such a pain i might do more harm there...
