comment How do I scan a USB 3G modem for malware without reinfecting the PC?
Well, manually editing the registry had the desired result. This article also helped me (shorter than the MS one): superuser.com/questions/37569/… (Having less luck clearing the infection though.)

Thanks. I won't be able to download those patches, of course, but it looks like it will be possible by manually editing the registry. I'll have to talk my mother through it over the phone. In your opinion, will disabling autoplay make it safe to plug in the USB modem if it's infection?

comment How do I find the current/recent photo in the WinXP “My Pictures” screensaver?
Aaand the mystery is solved. The missing photos were located in a hidden folder, \My Pictures\.Picasa3Temp -- no idea how that happened. (This also prevented Picasa from seeing them.) Thanks again.

How did I not discover that before? Thanks! That should do it.

Thanks Daniel! I deleted the iDVD application bundle and restarted, which fixed my problem. It seems the Terminal command wasn't needed (I also didn't seem to have LaunchServices.framework/ or lsregister on my computer.)

No, as I said in my question, I can't change or remove it.

comment How do I create a duplicate user account in Windows 7?
Personally, I didn't think either superuser.com/questions/185106/… or superuser.com/questions/135868/… were duplicates of my question (I did read them). Anyway, Randolph's answer suggests I may have to do it the slow way.
