Just download the latest version of Malwarebytes, and put it on a flash drive. You can just plug the flash drive into his computer and run it.

Or, create a new AVG rescue disc. You can boot the computer off the disc, instead of the hard drive, and it'll scan it.

you can use avast which have a feature by which you can scan before completely booting to window so it can remove antivirus effectively.
also their isnt any antivirus that can remove all virus without any update. that is a antivirus of 2010 cannot remove virus discovered in 2011 (whose coding is different from the database with last update of 2010)

If its 2012 sure just enable auto updates. If its 2011 and prior; honestly it wont let you update to the newer databases unless its 2012. What version is yours?
