    spybot search and destroy,
    ad-aware 2008,
    x-cleaner micro-edition, (trend-micro)
    a squared,
    superantispyware,
    ewido, (kinda outdated but still found stuff)
    glary utilities,
    system mechanic 7,

    I would do a "whois" lookup of that IP address.
    It may yield some clues.

    Per blog here: http://web-robot-abuse.blogspot.com/2006_10_01_archive.html
    Can you set up rules in Comodo to block that IP address?

    Will this do anything for his possible infection?
    Once blocked, will it try another?
    Have more tools been download to thwart some of his protections?

    They are a hosting company out of Texas. I believe they also assist in managing the internet mostly on the west coast by balancing, via grid computing, the load acrossed the servers on the grid, or provide the software to do so.
