My daughter's laptop has got a virus problem:

CPU usage has stayed at almost 100% (only in her user account, my account and Administrator's ac are OK).

Scanned with Malwarebytes, Adaware & Avast and removed a couple of nasties. After restarting, Avast still detected this nasty object: win32:Malob-X[Cryp] CPU usage still stay at 100% . Avast seems unable to remove the nasty object.

Here is Hijackthis logfile:

Thanks, speedy, done as advised but cpu usage still stays at 100% in her user account. My own user account and Admin accounts are OK, though.

Just noticed that when I disconnected the Internet connection from the laptop, it works fine - cpu usage has returned to normal, about 1 -5%

Also, notice that "O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [restorer64_a] C:\WINDOWS\system32\restorer64_a.exe"

has returned.

Seems to be a tricky and nasty item.

How to remove it permanently?

Is super Anti-spyware safe to use? It claims that it can remove the above.

Did you delete the file?? It cant run it you delete it...Get trojan remover and run it in safe mode / networking. Then click on scan. Then select all options under utilities. Never used super anti-spyware

Deleted the file. Run trojan remover in safe mode, did everything as suggested.

Restarted laptop, logged in to her account, cpu usage stays at 100%!:badpc:

Run trojan remover again in normal windows. Dont forget to update it first then click on scan. Dont forget to select all options under utilities menu

Did that but no luck.

Just downloaded Nod32 trial version and now scanning it.

Probably a reinstall is the way to go! Have spent far too much time on scanning already.

This Trojan has a registry entry that you will have to find. It is also run by a hidden driver that will also need to be remove.

Scan hard drive in another PC or use bootable scanner CD

http://download.bitdefender.com/rescue_cd/ (probably a lot faster)
or
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/livecd/

Make sure you have internet connection so it can update virus definitions
