I booted up the PC in normal mode. Little red X in the notification area said Windows Firewall was not active. Went to Security Center and yep, it was turned off. No one but me uses this computer, and I didn't turn it off. Soon after, computer stops responding at all. Task manager couldn't even be used to restart. Hard restart into safe mode. Ran mbam.exe, AVG7 Free Antivirus, and SUPERAntiSpyware and they all found nothing. Had this problem before http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/172218/fun-with-tdss-and-svchostexe-trojans/ and thought it was all fixed. Not so much. Please help.

It appears that the Rootkit is well seated in your system. I would avise you to make a topic in the HJT furum and let them dig it out. running further tools on this PC without guidance could make things worde.
