At this stage, what are the remaining indicators of infection or other noteworthy problems?

Have permissions been properly restored? If no, explain remaining issues.

Does she really need Java installed on her system? If no, remove it.

Is backing up documents, wiping drive, and re-imaging an option? If yes, this is the best option as trust can no longer be guaranteed without known-good image. System key can be extracted from registry, prior to re-imaging.

Thanks for your response The reinstall worked so far I have already removed her java (she had 6 which is probably where all this came from) also saw that some one had downloaded Fonts and saw the word Conduit associated with that (Red flags) since I assume like XP fonts are loaded everytime Win7 boots. I am renstalling AVG PRo now and the 500 or so updates.

Sounds like you have it under control. I have found this tool useful for removing Conduit, in the past.

Let me know if anything alarming pops up.

These tools will not harm your machine, I have been using them for a couple of years. :)

The first two will remove adware/spyware from your machine, the last will tell me what remains on your machine then we can remove what needs to be removed.

RSIT can make a detailed analysis of the computer system and generate elaborate reports regarding its efficiency, resource utilisation etc. After installation, first use of the RSIT generates two reports info.txt and log.txt. In subsequent runs, only the log.txt is generated. The log.txt report contains general information about the RSIT version, OS, hard disk, RAM etc. that can be used to identify causes for delays in the computer if any. The info.txt is generated during the first use right after the installation of the RSIT and consists of a list of software, security
Choice is yours I am here to help. :)

Also if you are using Spybot Search and Destroy I highly suggest that you remove it while I help you work on your machine. It can interfere with malware tools making our job harder, you may reinstall at the end of this venture, if you so choose.
