Let's try another approach then.

Try the Combofix version of the cleanup routine first:

Time for some housekeeping:
  • Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and tools used in the removal of malware
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.

If that fails as well, we really need to ask why.

Let me know how you get on

That is quite likely as it is updated often to ensure that it catches all the latest bugs.
It will still be quicker to delete the existing version, download the new version of ComboFix, which you save to your Desktop and follow the previous instructions, than to delete all bits manually.
