Good luck on your battle with the Forces of PC Evil. I had a client machine recently with a similar situation. I found a partial solution by pulling the disk and mounting it on a USB adapter on a Linux machine to disinfect, but was never sure enough of having gotten it all to do anything but wipe the drive, low level reformat, and use it for a backup (non-bootable) drive for my non-Windows systems. I got a whole new drive for the "victim" and reinstalled everything from scratch. I was able to recover all of the photos on the original drive, though, which was the client's main concern. As far as I know firmware variants are still rare, particularly if the bad guys don't have physical access to the machine, but I'm not by any means a malware specialist (I contribute on this board because of all the help I have received from other Bleepers on the Malware side.)
May the Bits fall on your good side.
