Windows steals another 5 or 6 hours of my life (79 trojan horses of various descriptions)

Got the new video card for Delcina's computer. Installed it and finally logged onto the machine. Thing was in rather rough shape; Norton AV with the subscription long-since expired, half a dozen questionable IE plugins, something that was taking over the IE executable, suspicious-looking card-games, and 79 trojan horse programs installed.

I didn't have their XP installation media, so I couldn't just nuke the whole machine and start over. Cleaned out everything I could find, but criminney what a pain!
