Thanks for getting back to me. I did all that you listed in the post, but needed to get these teacher's computers up for finals. I downloaded all of their important documents to an external drive, scanned them from a clean system with MalwarBytes, OneCare, and NAV, and formatted both computers after running CCleaner on the drives using NSA 7 pass cleaning. Boot sector on one drive was corrupt, so I dropped a new drive in and then reloaded them both. The strangest part was that after removing IE and making Mozilla the default (removed IE completely, including from the windows components and registry), that IE was still being activated by the virus. Oh, well. Problem solved and both computers now virus free. Both teachers were given the links to BleepingComputer tutorials on keeping their systems virus free. THANKS,
P.S. This can be closed out as resolved.
