    First make sure you've turned off system restore if you've got xp, because that stops antivirus scanners from completely clearing systems

    For an extra virus scanner try
    https://filesharingtalk.com/index.php?showt...=96763&hl=nod32

    Or if you want an online virus scanner

    Panda Active Scan
    House Call Another online virus scanner
    GFI trojan scanner BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
    Symantec Security Scan & Virus Detection
    RAV AntiVirus Online Virus Scan
    Danish Antivirus scan

    Jeez on cable a yr & no pf or av.
    ... total of 70 spy wares , 13 viruses , 18 and counting trojans ....
    That's not bad really. I'd expects 100's of each if not 1000's of each on cable.

    But I bet some of the trojans were protecting him. You know like, "That's my b*tch, move along."

    I suggest formatting completely every partition then reinstalling windows. chances are, even if you manage to remove all the spyware and viruses\trojans, a lot of files are gonna be corrupted becuase of teh antivirus program trying to disinfect them. so a lot of things will need to be reinstalled, some wont be able to uninstall and give u a hard time, some windows programs wont work which are kinda hard to replace...

    this happened to me a long long time ago and the only way to fix it was to just reinstall.
