Pay closest attention to the part about scanning in safe mode without
networking. If worse comes to worse KAV (www.kaspersky.ru) is good with
more than just standard viruses. Cleaning with any combination of the above
cleaners should (with updated definitions) take care of your problem. In the
mean time grab a copy of Outpost (or a firewall of your favorite flavor)
from www.agnitum.com (trial or free version will work just fine for this)
and stop allowing them to access the internet.

very first thing which ever made me feel that a profession might be
made out of what had up to that time been the merest hobby."
