I have a computer that is giving what looks like fake virus warnings.
Add/Remove shows a program call 'Antispyware' from 'Antispyware, LLC'
Obviously fake, and when I looked it up it seems to be a rogue antivirus.

I have ran full scans from Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware both under normal mode and in safe mode,
Each found and removed a dozen trojans including vundo. however after a total of four scans the listing for 'Antispyware' is still in the program list.
I am posting my HiJackThis log below, I can tell right away that there is a browser redirect in it, which I am seeing whenever I attempt to open a webpage.

Also I don't know if its useful, but I ran the ADS Spy utility in HijackThis and it listed this:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\TEMP : DFC5A2B2 (104 bytes)

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\TEMP : DFC5A2B2 (104 bytes)

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Nevermind, this post can be closed,
Customer decided they'd rather just wipe and reinstall the system instead of trying to clean it.
