So, a few days ago my mother brings over her computer saying that it's infected with viruses and wants me to fix it. So I boot it up after loading a thumb drive up with avast! and Spybot-S&D, foolishly I thought it was some of the run-of-the-mill malware or even that new Rogue Antivirus. Turns out after killing off about 12 Trojans I find my self stuck with, what avast! identifies as, a 'Win32:Unruy-E[trj]'. I've tried to kill it off with spyware, and even tried to remove it manually(it hides its self in C:/System Volume Information/Whistler as either an smss.exe or svchost.exe) but it just doesn't stay dead! The computer is running Windows XP and every time I try to hook it up to the internet it automatically downloads a bunch of new trojans and malware, please help!
