You're assuming it was the same keylogger and it's not that he's just downloaded another.
Either way, sounds like you need a new guildmaster and the old one shouldn't be given bank access. :)
Actually, it appears he is assuming that it was a keylogger. I have yet to see evidence of anyone actually using a keylogger to access WoW accounts. Near as I can tell, in every case that I know of the account was either phished or somebody broke into the victim's email. Either way, reformatting the hard drive would do no good, because the problem is not there.
