    anyone give me advice as to how to remove it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try these two free programs:
    Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware (MBAM for short) www.malwarebytes.org
    SuperAntiSpyware (SAS for short) www.superantispyware.com

    These are two highly regarded programs and do not charge for fixing what
    they find.
    MBAM works best in Normal Windows
    SAS may require SafeMode if it cannot fix the problem in Normal Windows.
    Download, install, update and run them one at a time.
    I would start with MBAM and continue with it until it can't do anymore.
    Then I would run SAS and do what it recommends.

    The paid versions are real-time while the free versions are on-demand only.
    They are equally powerful in detection and removal (paid and free versions)

    I purchased the paid version of SAS and I am extremely satisified.

    Forgot to mention that it helps to clean up your temp files, your temp
    internet files , your cookies and to empty your Recycled Bin before using
    the above two programs.

    He might as well format and reinstall if he's got to tippy-toe around like
    that, no?

    If he doesn't have a backup or a very good 'image', reformating is a royal
    pain, not to mention the many hours it takes to reinstall the proper
    drivers, etc and the data he would probably lose.

    Using those two programs I mentioned are quite easy and usually very

    You have what is called a "Smitfraud" infection.
    A particularly difficult nasty to remove
    First check in Control Panel/Add Remove programs, it 'may' be in there.
    Though that is only half the fix.

    The one tool that does kill it is the specialist SmtfraudFix tool available
    from here:
    This is the only tool I've found that consistently remove's these types of
    (Windows 2000 & XP only)

    Download it to your desktop.
    Clear the following folders.
    C:\documents and settings\username\local settings\temp
    C:\documents and settings\username\local settings\temporary internet
    Reboot the PC into 'Safe' mode (tap F8 as the PC restarts & select Safe mode
    with the arrow keys & press Enter)
    Now run the SmitfraudFix tool.

    Note it is a menu based program and you type the menu number followed by the
    enter key for each task.
    Do (4) update first (easiest on broadband)
    Then 1,2 & 3 in turn.
    Quit and reboot the PC to normal Windows mode
    Re start SmitfraudFix & do number 5 (doesn't work in Safe mode)

    Though it allways works first time for me, a couple of family members have
    had to run it twice to finaly clear things up.

    To tidy up after killing a Smitfraud infection it is a good idea to install
    these other Anti Spyware programs, update them & scan with them.
    (note this will take some time as it pays to select the 'full' scan options
    for each product)
    Spybot Search & Destroy
    Spyware Blaster
    The aforementioned Superantispyware & MalwareBytes.
    A2 (A squared)

    If it's any consolation these type of infections are very easy to pick up.

  9. So...he would just know to do 'regedit' in the Run box and then F3 to
    find and delete any keys that say 'spyware guard'?
