My daughters lappy is infected with above amongst others.
Ive read a couple of other threads to use malawarebytes to remove it.
Ive transferred the set up via usb stick but it wont run.Tried also to get into safe mode but just blue screens.Any ideas appreciated.

Does she have another user account on her laptop if so try running it from there.

Run in safe mode F8
These type scans should be carried out without internet connection in anycase..

Blue screen usually denotes bad drivers, have you installed any hardware?

Keep going, thats a pretty good programe, but if that does not remove it then try malwarebytes again, if not i shall look for something else for you
