I hate getting stuck in the middle like this. My friend was handed an infected laptop to clean. He ran many different tools on it (is unsure of the sequence) and has gotten it "clean". It appears to have been infected with a combination of MBR, rogue antivirus, and fake hdd ransom ware. He has given me the laptop to finish.
There is still 1 outstanding issue. The desktop is blank. If I run a scan with RogueKiller, just a scan without applying any fixes, all of the icons return until next reboot. The icons reappear during the scan inbetween Tasks and Policy Hijacks. During that scan, RogueKiller doesn't find any problems.
Sony Vaio VPCSE laptop

What logs would you like me to post? What is the next step?
