    I also notice that mal-ware sometimes installs itself as a windows "service" and must be shut down prior to cleaning, or it just reinstalls itself.
    An example why a DOS anti-virus programs, such as F-Prot, works well. Can be run on a floppy or bootable CD. Reboot the system on the floppy/CD and run the anti-virus app.
    There are several bootable CD's available which come packed with very useful tools these days for repairing a system, such as UBCD
