Okay guys. It is midnight, the week before finals and my roommate's laptop is screwed. It is named Harley, hence the screename.

So this is what has happened so far. Windows would not open any programs. It would ask me to choose from a list, and only then will it open something. It will not do Systems Restore. It gives the same error. We tried W32.Swen.A@mm Removal Tool. That did not detect the worm. Next, we tried Spyonthis. That detected 12 corrupted files. Below is the log. I can't delete them because they want 40$ to do it. Oh, and by the way, no .exe would open. We had to save the files as .cmd to get them to start. We also tried SpyBot and it didn't find any threats.
Now, none of us have pretty much any clue of what we are doing. Everything we have tried so far, we have read online. So we were hoping that you guys could help us. My roommate is very distraught. Thanks so much.
