Probably need your spyware programs to get rid of it,Lots of different downloaders,This one from Microsoft,click here .I think Vogs selection should get rid of it,If you download it,Update it before you use it,Run a deep scan on it.Will take 30-40 minutes.If he has any Anti-Spyware programs on his computer, it may be worth giving them a try first.
