My roommate has run into a bit of a hiccup. About a month ago, he acquired the File Recovery virus. I attempted to follow the guide on this site for removal, and I believe I have stopped it from running, but haven't successfully removed it. Maybe it's just being sneakier, I can't tell. He'd prefer not to start all over, but has since acquired what I believe is the google redirect virus, and something else that behaves like in-window popups on websites that do not have them. His anti-viral software is out of date. I have purchased Kapersky 2013 for him, however, I was uncertain if installing it now would be effective.

I would appreciate some assistance confirming the presence of these unwanted guests and squashing them!

I have left explicit instructions not to download or install any software while I go about this. The most he's using his computer for currently is schoolwork.

Cannot run DDS. Program starts normally, appears to still be running but without progress at the 75% mark. Left it to it's own work for about 30 minutes before forcing exit due to no progress being made. I have tried renamed versions of this program to no success.

Thank you very much for any and all time and efforts.
