My non-tech friend's system was not able to be logged into when I started helping clean it out. So far, I have:
* Performed a Windows Repair installation - then I could log in
* Overcame some virus's lock on registry changes so I could uninstall expired Norton Security Suite 2006 and install AVG 8.5 free
* Malwarebytes, Sophos Rootkit Remover, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, Spyware Blaster all found and "removed" numerous (hundreds) of infections
* Safety.live.com found Rustok.F and Koobface.gen!B and removed them, or so it said
* Now Malwarebytes is still finding Backdoor.Bot, Trojan.Agent, Rogue.Multiple, Malware.Trace, Trojan.Downloader, Hijack.FolderOptions, Hijack.WindowsUpdate

I can't use Windows Update, can't get rid of this stuff!

Here is my DDS summary, and the ark.txt and Attach.txt files are attached...

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I gave up and wiped the hard drive and did a total re-install. Turns out that whatever rootkit had installed itself had also created its own partition on the hard drive, or at least that is the best explanation I can think of for what I found when I went to wipe the drive.

Thanks for offering your help!

We can consider this topic closed.
