    Just to add to this, I had a customer yesterday with the exact same problem.

    In the end I had to extract the hard drive and install it as a slave drive, then load up the Registry hive using this guide. Interestingly when navigating to the
    Code:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    The Userinit entry was there, but the value was completely blank! It clearly creates the same problem as removal of the spyware itself.

    I then entered the value:
    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,
    and then unloaded the hive which solved the problem. Interesingly Microsoft themselves don't seem to document this technique.
