My old dad didn't use a computer until after he retired, as a result he seems incapable of not installing every piece of adware nonsense that comes across his desktop. Normally I'm able to remove all the spyware, however this time I've failed.
I've been trying to sort this PC out for the past couple of days, but I can't seem to get hold of the infection. As a result I can only clear up some of the symptoms, and it of course simply replaces them.
I've found SuperAntiSpyware to be effective in the past, however this time it doesn't quite do it all. I did have the free AVG installed, it picked up nothing. I upgraded to the free trial, and again it picked up nothing - that was the final nail in the coffin for AVG so it's gone.
I've removed all Java installations, and installed the latest one.
I've removed all the Apple/Adobe software.
He had Desktop Weather from the Weather Channel installed, which came with a package of Adware, probably not the payload that caused this problem, however it's gone now too, and I've installed a much cleaner alternative.
I've also run CCleaner to reduce the time scans and so forth take.
I'd appreciate any advice on solving this issue, and I thank anyone for their time.
I've installed Checkpoint's ZoneAlarm, to attempt to put some sort of barrier up to prevent the malware snowballing and adding more components.
I thought I'd check for rootkits as well, so I've run Panda's anti-rootkit, but found nothing.
I've also run Malwarebytes, and ComboFix.
Attached please find as requested the two logs from DDS, the first log from SuperAntiSpyware and a subsequent log.
