Trying to fix a friends computer, seems he has numerous rogue spyware/antivirus programs on his computer including Security Tools and maybe a couple others. I am working on getting a combo fix log right now. Tried to manually edit the registry, however the virus won't even let me open regedit. Tried to run Malwarebytes, but about a minute in it crashes (I'm guessing due to the virus).

Please advise in what direction to go in from here. Thanks!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

DO NOT run combofix without being instructed to by a trained, qualified staff member. If you think your infection is bad enough to even consider running combofix, start a new topic in the HijackThis section, but again, DO NOT run combofix unless instructed to do so.
