I have been battling an infection on this computer for months, and I think it is almost gone, but I still cannot update Windows and a random infection downloads itself to the computer. MalwareBytes doesn't pick up anything right now, but when I run it once a day, it finds some random new infection, leading me to believe there is a downloader hiding in my system somewhere.

I read the instructions, pasted below is the DDS file, the attach file is attached. I could not get a good Root Repeal scan. When it came to asking which types of files to scan, it just showed drivers then a bunch of boxes with no text next to them. If I checked them all and scanned the computer, the entire system would lock up to the point of needing a hard reboot.

Note, I know there is no antivirus installed, I had AVG running, but I got rid of it recently because it was interfering with other programs I was using to scan the system.

The following copy/paste is the DDS file. Attached is the Attach file from the same scan. Thanks so much for any tips or help you guys can provide.
