Badly infected and can't find the fix! Spyware/malware

I believe there is some sort of advanced Malware harboring in my system, as well as some definate
Spyware.

Odd things started happening a day or so ago.

I would get repeated "Windows No disk" errors constantly (currently have a CD in my only
removable disc drive, which is currently keeping the error at bay).

My clock switched to military time without my doing (fixed at the moment using Roguefix).

I Would be directed to random advertisement links when I clicked on google links. (I only use
FireFox because I believe that IE is just bad business in general)

I was not able to launch my Malwarebytes' program in order to do a maleware scan. I currently
have this issue under control by renaming the "mbam.exe" to "mbam.com", however, upon the
completion of the scan, none of the symptoms have disappeared.

I cannot launch Spybot. I have tried reinstalling both versions 1.4 and 1.6, neither of which
will launch. I currently have 1.4 installed with the Tea Timer off so as to not get in the way of
any fix.

When I try to update my Windows Defender, I get the error - "Error found: Code 0x80070422".

When I try to run SmitfraudFX in safe mode (with no network connection) it encounters a problem
and prompts to send an error report, and then close.

My ThreatFire program is always running. When I try to run a quick rootkit scan, it is successful
but finds nothing. When I try to do a full system scan, it freezes after one second of scanning.
I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling ThreatFire, which does not work.

When I am playing a PC game, does not matter which one, the game will automatically Alt + Tab to
my desktop, about everey 10 - 15 minutes or so.

When I try to run and install SuperAntiSpyware, the folder it is in crashes (Shows as not
responding). When I re downloaded the program itself, it crashes once I double click to install it.

I have tried Ad-Aware but is has no effect. I Have recently used TweakNow RegCleaner and
CCleaner, not sure if that makes a difference or if that is info you may need. I do not believe
that those programs would be the cause of all of this ruckus, but I thought I would let you know
that I so use them.

I just re installed the free AVG version after uninstalling it a few weeks ago, and ran it. It
caught quite a few things, and the only things I did not delete or qurantine were 7 svchost.exe
services that were infected with Win32/Crypto, as I did not want to delete something that is
valuable to the operation of my system. However even after this scan all of the listed symptoms
persist.

All of these funky happenings have led me to believe that something is certainly going on inside
my computer, and I want to stop it before it gets worse. None of my virus scans seem to be
working/launching, so that is no use. I have ran ERUNT and saved it. I also have ComboFix, but I
dare not touch it until I am given instructinos to do so otherwise. I also have a HJT log on hand
as well, but will not post it unless otherwise specified. Nor will I listen to the advice of a
private message, or an email, unless specified otherwise.

Thanks in advance!

This is the rootkit core file, rerun rootrepeal and right click on this file and wipe, immediately reboot and run a quick scan with MBAM and post that log please

Here is the log from my MBAM scan:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.33

My Spybot was able to open, but I did nothing from there (I didn't have the time), so I don't know how well it will run, if it indeed does open again.
Also, although MBAM seems to have turned up nothing, I keep getting warnings from AVG saying I have about 12 or so different system32 files infected with Win32/Cryptor. The darned window keeps popping up 5 minutes after I close it. Unfortunately it does not have a feature that allows me to create a log, so if you want me to hand type it all up let me know. At this time I have not deleted/quarantined them as I was unsure if it was going to affect what you had planned. Nor do I know if they are safe to delete.

Thanks!

The rootkit might be back if you don't run the new updated MBAM, this is a newer infection

Alright. As you said, my MBAM was not up to date. It is now updated and a log will be posted in about an hour. Thanks.

Remove it all, but there is usually a lot more to clean up

Remove, reboot and run another scan

This is a nasty infection, on a scale of 1-10, easily a 9
