i ran ccleaner, superantispy and malwarebytes and and still have a gnarly hijacking problem...i am unable to update my definitions for ANY anti-spyware program or antivirus (avg included) program using the update function within the program, and my browsers (firefox and ie) cannot even go to the manual download sites (i used another pc to get updates for malwarebytes and superanti) still, but i can go to any other site - haven't run combofix yet, ran stinger and it found nothing - if need be i can post a hijackthis log...oh yea, winxp sp2, 750mHz/400MB machine on a reliable wireless network...i can't get to malwarebytes site, download.com, safer-networking, lavasoft or any other manual download site...windows keeps saying "corrupt file" and to run chkdsk with every antispyware program i run, but i can't run it from command prompt due to windows error "cannot lock drive" and it doesn't run on startup either...i uninstalled adaware and spybot, just going with superantispy, avg, avast and malwarebytes...avast encountered errors while installing, thought about doing it in diagnostic mode...

here's the hjt log:

i ended up crashing windows when i removed a bad service and module while gmer was running - rebooted, windows ran checkdisk from a setup-type window, found probs, fixed 'em...everything is cool after that, updated super and bytes, no more re-directs and all is good - gmer seems to be the way to go when removing that rustok-n crap, just be careful y'all, i knew wut i was doing...
