Hey guys, hope someone can help. A client asked to use our main storage computer to look something up. Stupid me trusted him and let him. I run a photography business and this is the computer all hundreds of thousands of my photos are stored on. We have backups, but I would like to get rid of this ASAP.

Here's my problem. First I found all kinds of pop-ups popping up saying we had spyware, ran HiJack This and deleted some entries, and then ran SpyBot; basically all of the pop-ups are gone. However now after 30 minutes being logged on as any user we can't access programs anymore. These include Adobe Photoshop, Outlook Express, and Firefox. Outlook Express says access denied and that the files may have been moved, same things basically for the rest of my programs. Anybody have any clue what could be causing this, and a way to remove it. Would be more than willing to compensate someone for their time to help me. Thanks.
