Virus issue?

I am working on a friends computer right now that he says had a virus on it. He said he ran PCcillin and it got rid of it. Of course he has no idea what the name of it was. All he knows is that "its the same one I always get", which is always some variant of the AntiVirus Soft runaround. Generally I dont have a problem kicking this in the nuts, but I am thinking that this time around that is not the problem he had. Basically at this point everything is fine except that I can only get online in Safe Mode. If I try to get online via any of the computers accounts while not in safe mode, IE always wants to go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=76277, will not load it, and then gets a 404 if I try to go anywhere else. Even if I change the home page, it still wants to go to that link when the browser opens. PCcillin comes up with nothing. Either does Spybot or Spyware Doctor. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I guess its worth noting that Chrome wont display any page either, but will in Safe Mode. Mabye this issue has nothing at all to do with the virus that supposedly was on here.

try either repairing the OS with the Vista installation disk, or doing a system restore to an earlier time.
