Sorry about double posting...

It sounds like the blaster worm.

What you need is stinger, then to patch Windows with the latest service pack and that should cure the problem.

Stinger can be got from click here

The Windows updates can be done through his computer.

Make sure you turn system restore off first of all to stop it re-occuring.
