I'm using: Windows Vista Home Basic.

I work from home, I use the laptop (Dell 1545) for my business while the family uses it for various things (Wife:school, kids: games). I have a worker come into the home (sometimes quiet often) to do work for us. When they are here, we are usually not here. Began to have issue for while now, but discovered recently that they had been visiting a specific porn site over and over (They admitted when asked). They also admitted to adding a 'Stumbleupon toolbar" to the browser, which they said takes them to random websites. We now have exrta processes showing up in the task manager, and I need some help and guidance.

I currently have NOD32 Antivirus and it's other component (not sure) paid version, not trial.
I have Malwarebytes (Free version, will run, wont update)
Antispyware (Free version, runs, will update)
and Spybot (Free version, updates, only find cookies)

I can download a rootkit program, ect, ect. I am computer literate, but not terribly good at doing rootkit stuff myself.

help would greatly be appreciated.
