Give me a little while and I'll look into it and see what I can find/think.

From the very last log (which is only a partial log, if I were cleaning the computer at work I would get rid of the following:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:1030
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = ;cgi*.ebay.com;disney.go.com;msa_e1.ebay.com;rhapsody_app*.listen.com;<local>
O4 - Global Startup: BlueSoleil.lnk = ?

It won't solve the problem itself but it's something that should be taken care of anyways because nothing should be overriding the proxy settings or setting a proxy server, at least not on a normal home users PC.

Also for the t.exe, make sure he goes and checks (and removes if found) from C:\windows\temp\.

I haven't read all the posts from the above topic, but has he run CleanUp! on his computer yet? Having all that cached internet websites could cause some problems and slow the computer down.

*Edited*

Also check and see if there is a t.dll file somewhere that will just keep remaking the t.exe file even if you delete it.
