Hi guys!

Downloaded accidentally some kind of spyware removal tool (I guess it downloaded itself after I pushed wrong "OK" button) and after that it got weird. My Windows Update were turned off and even if Spybot found and deleted some infections I couldn't use updates and IE started often to pop up some kind of adsmarket-related window (I guess spybot blocked the content of the web-page because it was always blank).
I believe that the malware thing is called Virtumonde because every time I scanned my laptop with Spybot it always found Virtumonde.
Then I found out about Combofix and changed my explorer to Firefox. Combofix works well and after it reboots my computer, everything seems to be fine. For a while. Sooner or later the Spybot's online program (TeaTimer?) starts to ask permission to some kind of registry changes (to add or delete values) and few moments later appears my security center's note that my windows update is turned off.
After that, of course, the operating system will work slow as hell :thumbsup:

Hope there's a change to fix my laptop without formatting it.
