What are some Windows malware removal tools that are "User Safe" (I don't trust regular users with Hijack this)? Which ones give you the most results without asking the end user to make decisions?

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware is pretty user-proof and does a very good job at removing some of the newer stuff out there.

Ad-aware has consistently been one of my first go to apps.

SpyBot Search & Destroy is pretty straight-forward to run, but I would advise installing it for them in advance so they don't have to think about whether to install the optional parts or not.

Malwarebytes is very userfriendly, the only choices are quick or full scan, then you just tell it to remove what it finds. It's the best one I've come across for removing malware.

I haven't used it for a while, but Hitman Pro used to be a very easy to run malware removal application which uses a combination of different applications to do the actual work.
