I have working on my computer for the last nine days to try to rid it of what it has whether it be spyware, trojan's virus' at this point I don't even know anymore. It started with having a "windows security alert" box pop up repeatedly. I ran Mcafee and Superantispyware. Those both noted different things and I deleted them. The problem persisted, and then my home page of the internet started acting funny. I then located this website and ran the following:
Spybot s&D, Windows Defender, Ad-adware, avg antispyware, and bit defender. I did save the log from bit defender. I have seen different things listed during the scans for example: W32/nuwar@mm, Qhosts-54, trojan downloader-gen/cinbroom, wopla a - trojan, diwreck bu - downloader. I also ran ad-adware and spybot in safe mode several times. I will never admit to understanding how computers work, but I feel this one is a difficult one to remove. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks....

Have you tried doing your scans in "Safe Mode"? Are you doing scans while logged into the "Administrator Account" or an "account with administrator privileges"?

If rescanning in Safe Modes does not help, then try performing an Online Virus Scan.

Can you be more specific about corrupt? Are you getting any type of error messages?

Also to clarify, have you tried running AVG AS in safe mode? AVG AS is effective against many types of Trojans. You said you ran ad-adware and spybot in safe mode but I want to make sure you do the same with AVG AS.

If that does not help, then download and perform a scan with Trend Micro's Sysclean Package.
Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.

Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "Safe Mode".
