Friends computer infected with AV360, IE and Firefox both redirecting.

I deleted the av360 folder in program files but it still redirects

Ran HJT log and saw winconfig.dll is in windows\system32 folder

Biggest problem is that I can't install MBAM or SAS.

SAS throws up the popup asking if I want to send an error report to MS (normal and safe mode)

MBAM gets right to the end of the install but won't check for updates or launch (normal and safe mode)

Also, I downloaded the install exe's from a clean system just to be sure they were legit

I know that Spybot is old, but that is already installed but it won't launch either

I saw an earlier post where the person was instructed to rename the MBAM exe, I will try that next time I am over there but I figured I would get any other suggestions I could in the meantime, like how to get SAS on there. I will probably be back there next week.

Ive had so many FireFox and IE problems like that (5 mins ago) I would Try a simple system restore if you dont want to go through scans for hours..

And Also try renaming youre setup as an .bat or simply random letters .exe.
