Sounds brutal.

Did they tell you anything about their P2P use, warez or such that carries those trojans that inflict such heavy damage?

In these cases I may elect to start over.

Your P2P reference was right on the money. This was confirmed by the owner. Are you also implying that i do a new install of windows??

Here's the deal.

In reply to: P2P USE

The damage can run very deep. You can elect to try a XP REPAIR INSTALL (see google) or my favorite cheap exit of installing a new drive, the OS to same and add the old drive as slave so they can copy their files back.

The symptoms you write about "might" be solved but even I might spend hours fixing item after item... There is no set procedure for such damage and why I suggest the above fast and cheap fix.

Point well taken

The big word is THANKS.
