Thanks for your reply and suggestions. So far, I have tried ComboFix, MalwareBytes, and HitmanPro. All to no avail. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling AVG. Nothing... still behaving the same way. I am pretty much out of ideas and think he may just have to use it that way. It seems to have particularly affected the e-mail client (Windows Live Mail), and it constantly wants to load old e-mails into the "Unread" folder at startup...every time... thousands of emails. I thought about uninstalling Windows Live Mail, and I actually went so far as to export all the e-mail to storage folders on an external hard drive. But they are in Win Live Mail format, and Microsoft no longer offers a download of Windows Live Mail for Vista computers. He insists he needs the old emails. So, I feel like we are just stuck with it. May just have to get him a cheap new computer at some point. I cannot even imagine how many times I have told him NEVER to click on an email attachment. He insists it was an accident. :-/
Ubuntu... may have to look into that. I have heard of it but don't know anything about it. Again, thanks for the suggestions.
