    My mom has followed all the recommended steps above. It wasn't until the SECOND run of AVG that it finally picked up anything...ACK! and we KNEW there was a root-kit problem. She worked on it for nearly 24hrs straight & finally passed out...she's not done yet, but hopefully tomorrow it'll be finished.

    UGH...All of this from a fake Adobe update...

    the problem w/just reformatting is if it's a root-kit or boot virus, it'll bypass the reformat & write itself into the boot-up settings. We went through this w/mom's comp...re-formatted but still had the virus on the drive. was a PITA
