help with spyware (I think) please

  palinka 22:16 18 Jan 2005

An elderly friend told me she was getting strange pop-ups; I checked and found her AV was out of date and a number of nasties had got in as her grandchildren had been on line a lot. I've removed the nasties, with Stinger, Spybot and so on but the following remain: Agent.6.AJ; and Downloader.appropoAH.
Can someone suggest a way of removing these, please?

It'll be a few days before I can deal with it; What will these trojans be doing, meanwhile? ie is it OK for her to use her pc before I've fixed things with a2; or will that make things worse?

Stay off the net if at all possible.
