You may have luck with a bootable live CD. Many anti-virus products come with a (usually free) Linux live CD available for download.. I've had particular luck with this AVG.

Download DDS from one of these links:
Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
Put it on a "Clean" flash drive then install it on the infected computer. Right click to run as Administrator.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
