I need help removing the "validate copy of your Windows license

A friend of mine has a computer with Windows 7.  When logging in, a screen pops up saying "Validate copy of your Windows license."  He had this a couple months ago and I was able to remove it with Super Antispyware. I ran the program again yesterday since the infection is back and it did not remove the infection.  I ran Spy Hunter only to learn AFTER it was done scanning that I had to pay in order for the infection to be removed.  I also tried Spybot Search & Destroy to no avail.  The computer has Symantec installed and it can't seem to remove the infection.  .  I have looked at some different sites online and quite a few reference looking in "Programs & Features" as well as running Spy Hunter.  I'd greatly appreciate any help that can be offered.  Thank you.

 

I have already disabled System Restore and tried running these scans in Safe Mode with Networking.
