Get the spyware removed from your machine. Then run the following from a command line:

regsvr32 C:\Windows\system32\msxml3.dll

Okay. I did this and it says this succeeded.

Now try to open event viewer.

I tried and still no dice.

After running sfc /scannow and chkdsk quite a few times, and seeing many many "bad blocks" listed, I'm going to err on the side of caution and recommend the laptop owner replace her hard drive.

I followed rshaffer61's advice and followed the "How to Remove Malware" thread so the [bleep] thing is clean as a whistle, it just may be time to replace the thing.

Thank both of you for your help.

With that many bad blocks the HD should be replaced.
If the client has no recovery cd then have them contact the manufacturer of the laptop and usually for a small fee they will send one.
