Hello. Thanks in advance for your help. About a week ago, my computer became infected with win32.tdss.rtk plus a host of other viruses and trojans. I had Windows firewall, PC Tools, & Spybot running at the time of the infection. After pop ups started taking over my PC, I ran PC Tools and it found and removed a host of viruses. I also ran Spybot and it found a host of problems including win32.tdss.rtk and fixed. I restarted and re-ran both. PC Tools was clean but Spybot found win32.tdss.rtk again and fixed. After about an hour, pop ups started again plus a program called Malware Doctor somehow loaded itself onto my PC. My PC became unuseable! I shut it off and used my notebook to search win32.tdss. I found this site and after reading some of the posts, I burned combofix to a CD and booted my PC in safe mode and ran it while disconnected from the internet. After combofix finished running, I was able to use my PC for the 1st time in days. I re-ran combofix while connected to the net and with my USB drives connected (disconnected them before the first run) and everthing seems fine. After reading how difficult this trojan can be to remove, I wanted to ensure my PC is clean. I have since installed Ad-Ware Free AE & ZoneAlarm firewall. The only problem I've found is that Windows Update is disabled and I cannot enabled it from the security center or using services.msc. I keep getting "Acess Denied". Below is my DDS.txt file.
