    Boot in safemode... remove all active scanning devices/real time protection.
    Install Trojan-Remover, and run it.
    Let it do it's thing. When it's done, go back to safe mode and run Combofix and SmitfraudFix.

    I have tried cleaning a comp like that , once you think iy's clean something new pops up or it freezes in the next cleaning stage .
    best to copy the things he wants saved and wipe it . nor cost effective to clean

    i would also go with complete rebuild. it is generally not worth trying to remove that much crap. when i build a comp, c: is operating sys, d: is personal (my docs and emails etc), e: is backups (also recommend external) i load clean os and their progs then use acronis true image with safe zone. if they have any probs they just have to press F11 and reload as i left it. time taken to reload their new programs even if they have not kept the backup up to date is minimal and easy. good luck anyway. my 2c
