You may want to consider Avira Rescue. There is a good tutorial at [Rescue CD] Tutorial for Avira Rescue CD - Tipps und Tricks - Avira Support Forum

Brian Krebs has additional suggestions here.
More information? My head is spinning.

Brian,

I have been involved in computer security and malware removal for many years. I have access to a number of discussion topics in private forums and faithfully track some particularly (for back of a better description) involved discussion topics. Let's just say you are absolutely correct -- it is indeed enough to make your head spin keeping up with the current malware and proper tools.

Some people are of the incorrect opinion that throwing every available scanner at the machine will solve the problem. Just think about the person with a heavily infected computer, getting pop-ups and redirects, their A/V and firewall not working, Windows Update disabled and they're told to download and scan with five different software programs. I've also seen where some idiot cleared system restore and then started registry edits. It made for a useless doorstop.

I was only exposed to a few solutions to Rogue Viruses. I am pretty sure they're alot more, but i only came up with a few that became very helpful to me that i came across. I did happen to come across a few rogues, and the solutions i posted, helped me alot. It may not be much, but its a start.

I feel satisfied. I am currently repairing my friend's laptop and he has a rogue virus "XP Smart Security" and i am using the method (method #1) and i am currently scanning. He has so far 84 infected objects (most i seen so far yet). So i thought to let you guys know this method really works. I feel super great.
