In general, you will find that cleaning your system usually does not

There are a number of programs which can remove most spyware without

He is right in that flattening and rebuilding the system is the only way
to _guarantee_ that all malware has been removed.


There's quite a difference between "most spyware" and "all malware."

The problem is that's no way to differ between those, thus no "removal tool" could provide just any non-zero reliability.

Do you think that one could reasonably work with a computer that must be reasonably distrusted with everything he does?
