Hello all,

I am currently having trouble removing some serious spyware on a friends computer. He originally called me because he had Windows police pro keeping him from using his computer. I took a flash drive over there and started running some of the normal stuff like Hijack This, Adaware, and Malwarebytes. Each program started to install and run and each one cut off in the middle and then would not let me restart the program. I finally did some manual removal work and thought I had deleted it and then Antivirus 2010 popped up and started causing problems. I was finally able to download Super Anti-Spyware which I had used before to remove Antivirus pro and was able to get the program started scanning. It detected numerous Trojans and infections and then it did the same thing and cut off in the middle of the scan and now will not let me run it again. I get an error like no permission to use or something to that effect. I recognize some of the trojans and they are some pretty tough ones. I saw Trojan Vundo, AntiVirus 2010, Windows Police Pro, AntiSpywar 2009, and Advanced Virus Removal. I am not sure if they are all part of the same piece of spyware or a bunch of different ones, but I know I have tried running as many different spyware removal programs to delete them. I felt I had it with Super Anti-Spyware and also feel Malwarebytes would fix it but I can no longer get those programs to run from the computer or my flash drive. I have tried renaming the install and exe files and have tried downloading fixexe.reg which I thought might help me be able to run malwarebytes. Anyways, I am going crazy trying to fix this and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
