I'm using Windows XP.
I noticed my google results were occasionally redirecting to ad4.douleclicker.net sites. I googled the problem and found myself on the Kapersky boards.
A moderator told me to post a avz_sysinfo.zip file, which I did. He gave me a custom Kapersky script to remove C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\a3eqvdx0.SYS. I deleted the file and the problem vanished. My google results are no longer redirected.

Ever since I removed the malicious driver, windows says it found new hardware after booting. Should I just delete the unknown driver using the Device Manager?
He then told me to post a Combofix.exe log. I tried twice, first waiting an hour and then waiting 16 hours, and can confirm Combofix won't continue once the dialog box says Restarting Windows... Please wait. To get my computer back, both times I had to resort to a manual reset, which throughly messed up my time settings.
So I posted the problem I had with Combofix on the Windows XP board here. A BC Advisor informed me there is no solution to my Combofix problem and that I need to address the original problem without using Combofix. He said since the Kapersky moderator told me to run Combofix, there are probably still malicious files that need to be cleaned up.
What steps should I take in order to further clean my system?
