I know I have a ton of malware on my PC - Windows XP Home Edition. I have tried: SuperAntispyware and mbam but they quit before the scan finishes. I have tried to create log files using dds.scr and hijackthis, but again it quits after about 10 seconds. I also tried Dr. Web Cure.it
and it does express scan ok with no viruses found, but quits when try to do Complete scan.

I tried quitting everything from task manager that could be quit (I think). I have tried Safe Mode. I tried renaming mbam to random file name.

Also whenever I have explorer.exe running, it causes Internet Explorer to open by itself, so I disconnected my computer from the Internet.

Some of the malware I have been experiencing include: Coreguard family like Antivirus Pro, Windows Police Pro, Windows Security Center, Antivirus System Pro. I have been able to get rid of most of this manually, but not sure if everything gone.
Also, I had the malware where cmd.com, regedit.com etc files were created/hidden. I deleted these.

Before Superantispyware quits it said I have the following: rootkit.Agent/Gen-UACFake and Trojan.Dropper/Win-NV.

Please help.
