My girlfriend clicked on a bad link in AIM and bad stuff happened.

Avast keeps detecting a few files and deleting them but they keep coming back. Mainly "msdirectx.sys" and "lockx.exe"

I've gone through all the suggested steps, run all the spyware removers, anti-virus, etc and it's still there. I'm also getting random IE pop-up ads and just a general overall system instability. Programs stop responding for minutes at a time. ANy time I try open up the Task Manager it seems like Explorer locks up and then no other programs will run.

I tried booting into safe mode. The wierd thing is, once I get to the boot menu where you can actually select Safe Mode, my keyboard stops responding and I have to restart the computer.

Also, when I try changing settings in msconfig, I get this error saying that I don't have permissions or something even though I'm logged in as administrator. (I can post the exact error if it will help). Somehow I was able to get lockx.exe out of the startup group, but I don't know if all traces of it are gone.

Bottom line... tons of wierd stuff going on and I don't know what else to do.

Here's my HijackThis log:
