I'm working on a friend's computer which has/had a virus. I ran TDSSKILLER and it did not find anything. I ran SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, Eset Online Scanner and ComboFix. All found and fixed some things. However, I'm not convinced that it's completely gone because it seems as though virus' are found everytime I run something even if I run the same program again. Is there anything else I can run? I have the ComboFix log but it's quite lengthy. Can anyone give me any suggestions on where to go from here. The virus wiped out their start menu and any system utilities. I had a similar problem (on another friend's computer) a couple weeks ago. Was able to clean it up and that one ended up just having the start menu files hidden so I was able to unhide them. However, this one appears as though it's gone. I'm just not sure what to do at this point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,well having run ComboFix on your own we need to see that and a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you posted earlier.

Let me know if that went well.
