Palladium Fake anti-virus

I just had the 'palladium fake anti-virus' attack a computer.  To fix it I first restarted in safe mode and then installed Malware Bytes AntiMalware (MBAM) ran a full system scan and it removed all but 7 files.  They were all located at "C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Application Data" and all of them had today's date as their creation date.  I manually deleted them, emptied the recycle bin and restarted the computer.  I also ran CCleaner and it deleted all of the temporary files.

I also had to reinstall MS Office as MS Outlook was trashed and would not run even in safe mode.
