I think my laptop is hosed. I keep getting this error, as reported on the homepage: "your computer starts exhibiting the behavior of security programs terminating and then getting permission denied when you try to run them again, then there is a good chance you have this rootkit on your computer." IE7 popups are incessant, even when I'm disconnected from the internet, and I can't even uninstall IE7 anymore - it isn't listed in my programs. Normally I use Firefox as my browser, so this is extra weird. Avira isn't able to remove the bad file, but it keeps popping up with alarms for me to attend to. Malwarebytes won't run a scan, the program just stops. After I try to run Malwarebytes I get the "you don't have permission" error. So far I haven't been able to figure out the RootRepeal program. So can someone help me get my computer healthy again? Thank you!
