awola removal

My brother-in-law has managed to install awola and now I have to get rid of it. Any ideas? He lives 60miles away and is techno-phobic.

any free solutions? What is google pack? does it use up resources, loads of spam etc?

I looked on google and quickly scanned that link.

Didn't realise it was a trial which wouldn't remove anything.

Thank you all. I am using crossloop to access his pc, I have tried VoG link but everytime I try run a scan awola jumps in but will keep trying. Can I install all the above at the same time and run them one at a time.
no worries ened I have seen and installed loads that just scan

Thanks all - think we got it using spybot then super antispyware. Will learn more tomorrow as B-I-l HAD 2 GO OUT.

Good. Still I'd update rogueremover and run that again in safe mode as skidzy recommended. Also run Ccleaner to sweep up. If it returns then check skidzy's 17:25 post, the last sentence.
