Hi,

The symptoms (and other possibly fishy stuff) I'm seeing:

* If I do a Google search and click a result, I'm taken to the page I want about 1/4 of the time. The other times I click a search result, I'm taken to dirty, nasty places full of pop-ups and bogus malware scans. This happens with IE, Firefox or Chrome!

* If I do start->run->cmd and hit Enter, the taskbar disappears for a second and comes back, and there is no error, but cmd does NOT open.

* There are two copies of wuauclt.exe running - one as system, one as logged in user (not sure if that's normal).

Troubleshooting:

Turned off system restore, rebooted into safe mode and did this:

* Spybot SnD full scan: nothing found

* Malware Bytes full scan: nothing found

* Ensured my DNS was set to DHCP - even tried hard-coding it as OpenDNS addresses but that did no good.

* HJT log - attached

I'm at a loss here...looks like some sort of rootkit, but I didn't want to go any further and just run utilities willy-nilly until I got some advice from the experts! Thanks all!
