Hi - I'm in the middle of nowhere with download speeds of 3/kb or so.

Windows Vista
HP Pavillion dv6000 (Laptop)
Virtumonde (only Spybot would find it- always comes back right away)
Was using outdated (behind 3 weeks or so) AVG (think infected)
Was using outdated (behind 3 weeks) Spybot
Have Windows defender and Updates (were outdated)

Hi- I'm pretty lost. Willing to buy removal software- just don't know what works. Have searched manually using 'manual removal' lists but computer locks up and says error when I try to remove dll -type files- windows stops working goes black, even when I search for some files (.dll, I think).

Even windows update and Defender seems wonky- AVG absolutely 'odd' sometimes if I 'repair' Spyware Doctor or reinstall Maleware Antimaleware- I can get a 'scan'. Just now RootRepeal is freezing and refusing to work (first time it tried kept saying "API Locked" or something like that in description. Tried to scan first time but froze part way through.

I'll attach Hijack log; and DDS files (2); RootRepeal frozen won't start again even after exit and restart..

Began about 3 months ago- Screen would flash now and then- "Your Infected" "Go Here"

I ignored the sites- but then internet would start 'locking up'- I have INCREDIBLY slow- dial-up anyway (3 kb)- way out in the boonies- it would just sit on blank page with '20 percent loaded' - forever. (seems almost normal considering speed).

Went to library searched and searched -tried solutions: download Windows Vista updates. AVG updates, Spybot updates. Spybot would scan and say Virtumonde. So I downloaded Maleware, Spyware Doctor, SuperAnti Spyware, FixVundo- nothing seemed to work- Most won't even find- some find 3 or 4 'viruses during a scan'- but any attempt to remove crashes or they just come right back in cookies. For searches I'm told I have 'no access', hidden files turned on, etc. Forgot to mention, have 'screen flashes' now and then like a DOS window is opening 1, 2, 3 times and closing too quick to see- doing something on its own

Direction, advice, the best antivirus to buy (does it work for removal? - there are many voices- but everyone is selling something - I don't know to believe), etc. Anything (at all) would be great!

May Gods Grant Blessings - as your time is appreciated

THANKS. YahooSerious

P.S. Uploaded HiJack File too- as nothing seems to work-
