Family member installed AntiVirus 2010 can see in 'remove programs'

I'm using TeamViewer's Remote Desktop Feature & tried to run Rkill & AntiMalware bytes which was 'intercepted' (error message) by virus.

The pre-installed Eset Smart Security finds 1 infected file but can't clean it.

Please excuse grammar/ typos as am currently connected to this computer via remote connection. Will it make a difference running Rkill & Malware Bytes (also A-Squared Free) in Safe Mode? or will the error message reoccur? I would try safe mode though the only member computer literate enough to start in safe mode & get out of safe mode is currently snowed in. I know you might think it easy to use f8 etc when computer starts though AntiVirus 2010 has disabled (! exclamation mark in device manager) the keyboard - tried deleting & reinstalling driver to no avail.

Whilst I wait for Eset Scan to end my question is will RKill & Malware Bytes actually work in Safe Mode?

Also do any of this processes seem suspect - I used print screen feature via Remote desktop to capture their taskmanager:


As maybe I can manually end the process?
Ah, such a niuisance Ps. I'm in Portugal they're in UK :/ please help....



probably a variant of Win32/Kryptik.YQ
trojan - unable to clean



I tried the F-Secure, BitDefender & A-Squared Online Scanners & subsequently the connection to IE was cut.

I will try SafeMode with Networking next time when another member is over & hopefully I can update the installed scanners & use them in safe mode. If this isn't successful would it be possible to use a VPN connection (again TeamViewer) to scan their computer files using the scanner programs on my computer, would this risk speading the virus to me (I have the same Eset Smart Security as part of a 3 licence pack)?
