    Removal tools (or instructions for manual removal) are no solution to an
    infection, particularly not with malware that may download more malware
    or may give an attacker remote access. One can never be sure what else
    was modified on the system and thus can never be certain that the
    malware was removed entirely.

    stronger solution

    you are right he will need a stronger solution for this kind of threat, I also tried few of the removals tools but to be frank, you will not get the same results as an antivirus software, if you want to get the protection you need you can go to http://www.downloadinternetsecurity.com/ or other sites that sale antivirus
