So how many days did it take to finally get the nastys out of there??? Sorry, but my solution if a standard AV or AS doesn't get rid of it is to reformat. Takes 4 hours max to get me back to normal state vice 5 days and tons of work to find a way to exorcise the demons in your computer.

She's running Avast right now.
Here's what it says so far...

File C:WINDOWS\TEMP\u.exe is infected by Win32:AutoIt-FR [Trj]

Got a bunch of options, and she deleted the file.
Scan is about 50% done now.

I can't find any real info on Win32:AutoIt-FR.
Some are saying it's a false positive.

Don't forget to use ATF Cleaner or CCleaner to empty out the temp files. You may also have to go in the temp directory and manually clean some stuff out.

As for Hijackthis, it's almost useless nowadays. I used to use it religiously but it's failed to find things more than it's finding them now.

Any ideas about the startup items that I can't see names of?
Msconfig shows two of them in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (something like that... I can't get on to see right now).
The names are invisible though.

Well, you can try Hijackthis and post your log here so we can see what it picks up.

the thing about most programs that you have to pay for after you install them is that some of them actually install the virus I did a test on an old computer that I had different virus scanners on it and just ran one at a time while the others where turned off and not running in the back ground . after running all the virus scanners my system came up totally clean, then I downlo0aded online advertised virus,ma ware scanners and ran them and every one of them ( I tested one at a time then cleaned my system) everyone of them actually put the malware or virus on my system so don't go for the "download for free" crap . there are allot of good "free" removers out there that are trully free and not those scams that say free until you run it and find out that free acutally mean free to download but not free to clean your system.
