It started this monday, by my proxycap and daemon tools programs suddenly shutting down and refusing simply giving a default windows error message when trying to start them up again. I also found that I was unable to access microsofts.com and any antivirus website (AVG, symantec, etc.).
I decided to simply reformat my pc, as I needed to do that anyway, but after having reconnected to my external hard-drive to get drivers, I found out i'd been infected again. I did another re-install, and the same thing happened again. I then searched a bit around the interwebs and found that my symptoms could mean that I had the conficker worm. However I ran 3-4 different removal tools and none of them found the worm, neither did mbam.
I assumed that a virus had also infected my external HD and used another storage device to transfer drivers instead. I then proceeded to disable autorun, load up an autorun firewall and install autorun eater.
I then scanned both my pc and external harddrive with mbam and SAS, but nothing showed up, so I assumed I were safe.
PC's been working fine untill today, when the symptoms suddenly reappeared after I'd installed xp SP3 along with some updates and drivers. After rebooting my comp I had 2 command prompt windows pop up, and the exact same symptoms reappeared.
I scanned with mbam and it found nothing. I am currently scanning with AVG, and it found 3 copies of win32/virut so far. However it doesn't seem like the symptoms match those thats described for this virus.
I'm getting a bit desperate here, so any help would be very much appreciated.
Edit: Forgot to mention I'm using windows XP
