Virus Removal: How do places like Geek Squad do it?

I see a lot of PC repair shops offering “Virus Removal” as one of their specialties. What do they do that’s different than merely running the latest anti-virus software?

    A lot of what they do is research to remove threats manually. This takes experience and a lot of work. Sometimes plain antivirus doesn’t cut it, especially if there is none when the system is infected.

    I use Hijackthis then when i have identified the malware i remove it either manually or automatically.

    I think PC repair stores remove them manually but i don;t know for sure
    why not just ask them?
