Thank you for being understanding, and I would certainly like to know what happens if you don't mine letting me know. If they do get you straightened out, I have a whole bunch of free programs to help better protect you against getting any sort of infection.
Actually I will list it now, maybe it can help your sons computer out.

If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace
it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs: *Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.AVGAvastAntiVir
The following free programs are great for prevention:SpywareBlaster 3.4SpywareguardIE/Spyad
A Firewall is a must!
Here are 3 good free versions:SygateKerioZoneLabs
There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:FirefoxOpera
If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site
is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.
Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

For ease use the following program: Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot
