Symantec antivirus-unable to send email error message with dozens of pop ups

I've got a machine that I've been looking at that was brought in for a virus. It found Trojan zerfrach, and I'm not sure if this is associated at all but I kept getting a dll error that said it couldn't start exibiqob.dll, I've searched the internet and came up with nothing.  Anyway, my definitions are the latest, I ran the scan, it quarantined with a reboot to fix it. (ALSO, I turned off system restore). After reboot, I plugged it back up to the internet and the same thing started happening. I've ran ad-aware, norton, defender finds nothing and spybot found 1 unknown that it fixed. Any ideas?

Try using SpyDLLRemover ( http://rootkitanalytics.com/userland/spy-dll-remover.php ) also available as a portable app ( http://www.pendriveapps.com/spyware-remover-spydllremover/ ).

If you are uncomfortable with that after looking at the webpage, try Malwarebytes: http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
