I have removed over 90 infections from my sisters' computer, using malwarebytes, superanitspyware, spybot search & destroy, and avg. I can only run them in safe mode due to the computer freezing up about 3 minutes after it loads the desktop. Now malwarebytes has found 2 more infections but freezes the computer at just over 12 min everytime. Spybot also freezes during the scan, and superantisyware and AVG come up clean.

I tried to run Hijack this, and it freezes the computer during the scan. the computers has the useless Windows live one care is also installed, but it won't let me remove it unless I am in the nonfunctioning normal mode.

I am running windows vista 32bit, on a sony vaio.

After 2 days of searching for an answer on my own, I am now asking for help. What can I do now?
I tried to list everything, please let me know if you need more information

Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
