Four days of bogus blue screen warnings, security pop-ups, denial of access to all security ware, Control Panel, - anything to use against the infection, unless I sneak in and delete the bogus security ware at start-up (it loads slow, and I can kill it if I'm on the ball), after which I can hit it with AVG, AdAware, Spybot - and have added Malwarebytes and Combofix.
Running a budget Presario AMD SEmpron 3400+ 1/2G RAM
Windows XP, all SPs and Microsoft updates. Java and all software bang up to date, Firefox - only use IE to access BillLand.

I would like to root this infection out once and for all; any and all help appreciated.
DDS and RootRepeal files attached.

P.S. ComboFix keeps warning me to disable Avira before running. I uninstalled Avira 3 years ago: any ideas what CF is finding?

Thank you.

As of the first post, the infection has not recurred,.
Repeated applications of Spybot, AVG, AdAware, MalwareBytes and ComboFix, in normal and safe modes, seem to have worn it out.
Thread Closed.
