I'm terribly lost and my system is messed up!
Lenovo Thinkpad X60 - Windows XP Professional SP2
Problem: Internet Explorer opens 100's of windows to advertising sites. Firefox is crashing. I stopped using my system after that.
What I've tried:
1. Hijackthis will not run. I've tried renaming the file - nothing. It shows up in process view but will not open the window.
2. Spybot will not run. I've tried renaming the file - nothing. It shows up in process view but will not open the window.
3. Malwarebytes Anti Malware will not run.
All other software will run. I tried all this in Safe Mode as well.
GMER list a library under svchost.exe as a rootkit. It is a VERY long string of letters.dll in the system32 folder. When I end it - windows shuts down due to DCOM server being shut down.
Whats my next step?
