So... my friend has this nasty bit of virus called "Trojan.ASPX.js.win32" on his Computer, the issues he has are these.

1. Unable to connect to the Internet, but gets sent A LOT of pop-ups time to time, such as Porn Sites, etc. (The only browser he has so far is IE7.)

2. Cannot open Windows Task Manager, it won't allow him.

3. Computer gets BSOD are some points.

This is all I know so far. What I am going to do to help him out is give him some Anti-Malware/Spyware/Virus installer EXEs that should hopefully allow him to remove some infections, however... I don't know if this will work, due to that some viruses/malware prevents some installer EXEs from running. (I ran into this problem with one of the Laptops at school that the tech crew had, tried to Install Malwarebytes on the Laptop, and the Installer EXE didn't run at all.)

The installer EXEs I will give him are these...

1. mbam-setup-1.46 (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware *Free*)

2. SUPERAntiSpyware (SUPERAntiSpyware *Free*)

3. setup_av_free (Avast! 5.0 Anti-Virus *Home*) "He has Norton, but seeing as it might be out-dated, I think this Anti-Virus might be better to use."

4. Firefox Setup 3.6.3 (Firefox Internet Browser) "Just to see if he can get on the Internet with that, it's worth a shot."
-----
I don't know if this is a good idea, but any suggestions of what he should do? He can't enter Safe Mode, and also he can't connect to the Internet, so... any ideas?

*There might be more Viruses/Malware that this, due to the issues he has, but only that name popped up, and he told me it.*

It would be nice to get some help here, as the next day, if he finds his USB Drive, I am going to transfer the Installer EXEs.

Please response...

Found some info on some viruses that my friend has.

Since I can't view the log over the phone >_>, my friend has reported me these infections.
(11 Infections with these names.)

Trojan.BHO
Trojan.Fakealert

I told my friend to stop the scan at 11 infections because the last time he scanned it gave him the BSOD, which killed the scan progress. However, after running the scan again, these infecitons don't seem to pop up yet, so hopefully we slowed it down.

Those were removed by Malwarebytes he installed on the computer, but due to the internet being blocked, it's an outdated version, but I think the Version number that the EXE I gave him is 1.46, so hopefully it has some updates to it.

It would really help if I could get answer here.
