A friend brought me his laptop because he knew something was wrong with it.
Originally it would not boot Vista at all. He took it to local computer shop & they got it to boot & gave it back to him.
I think all they did was a Vista start up repair.

When I first tried scanning the laptop it would either freeze or reboot with in an hour.
I was trying to scan with Malwarebytes and also tried SuperAntiSpyware.

After a couple days of having the freezing issue I started Malwarebytes & the minute it found something I would stop the scan & chose remove.
This worked to the point of Malwarebytes can now run completely without the computer freezing or rebooting.
It found a Vundo trojan & I removed it. After that I did a full scan & nothing was found.

I rebooted into safe mode (first time it would boot safe mode) and ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing.
Next I ran SUperAntiSpyware & it found the following -
Adware.Vundo Varient
Trace.Known Threat Source
Trojan.Smithfraud Variant

I allowed SAS to quarantine/remove the programs.

To make sure it is really clean, what do you suggest I do now?

Any help is greatly appreciated

Could you please post the logs of both MBAM and SAS?
