Windows 7: virus

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

I recommend reinstalling MBAM and leaving it installed for the time being. Make sure it is up to date and run the full scan. After deleting everything that comes up, restart the computer and run a full scan again. If you continue to have problems, open Run, type in msconfig. Select diagnostic starup and restart then computer. Then run a full scan with MBAM and Hitman Pro.

I have a question about the third image in your previous post. Is that to show us what kind of pop-up you are recieving or something you tried to run? Either way, the link below will take you to page descriping how to remove Windows Security Alert manually. You may have to do so in safe mode.

EDIT: +1 on the reformat suggestion, if you are able to do so.

That warning is there for a reason! Then again it might get you to a point where you have to wipe the Disk(s) and start fresh (as you should in cases like your friends)
Virus removal is no substitute for adequate protection measures. You can never be 100% sure that you got it all.
