It really sounds like a hardware problem or a bad driver load and a total windows crash more than malware. I have seen something similar after malware was removed but such damage usually requires running windows as a repair disk and reloading the drivers for the computer. Why not have your uncle order the restore disks? 15$ is cheap compared to a repair bill and usually they require the disks anyway.
No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
