Uhh DLSS I know I'm a noob but this has worked for me before, go through program files delete everything there that you don't know. (and isn't windows one of my friends made that mistake) Than go through Add/Remove programs and delete things agian. If the file stays, do it in safe mode.

I'd just nuke it and start again, my mate had something similar and it was the only thing that cleared it up. Also, i'd put AVG/ZoneAlarm/Adaware/spybot search & destroy on it, along with firefox and spend an hour making damn sure they know why they have to use these programs. And have a quiet word with the males of the house about porn sites not having your best interests at heart...

http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml Gets the key in XP, which you can use to reinstall it with. Its flagged as spyware, but it isn't. False positive.

If he has spyware like this, then you need to make it clear to him that he cannot just ignore it, and if formatting C: is the only cure, he has to do it, or risk having his identity stolen, along with his credit cards or whatever. Just make it clear that if he doesn't get this fixed, this is where your free tech support stops, and that when it does FUBAR his PC, you'll be wanting money to fix it.

Sysbopt is a trojan notifier. It notifies its webserver when a target computer has been infected. Then with that data, the trojan in the infected computer can be controlled taking over the administration privilegies and other sensitive data stored in the disks of computer.

Having read this I would deffintly nuke it, the PC has been comprimised in admin mode and god knows whats been installed on it by now.
