Toshiba laptop issue

Client laptop Satellite C655.  Programs not opening, pix not showing when being inserted into Word docs.  Malewarebytes removed 300 infected items. Combofix had a few dozen  more.  Mbar still running.  System restore failed on two weeks ago and 2 months ago (last one was 03/27/14, there were none before that.  Device only provides for complete reinstall, no repair install.  Anything I may have missed?

you can run roguekiller too  : http://majorgeeks.com/RogueKiller_d6983.html

but i also suggest a clean install in this case  - you'll loose as much time running scans and repairing the OS - and will not be sure if it will run fine!

You were right.  THe only answer that worked was a reformat and rebuild.  Thanks.
