OS: Windows XP SP2

First I need to apologize. I did run combofix.exe, but that was before learning of this site. I was not aware that I should not run it before asking for advise.

The problem started I beleive on 11/12/09. I was infected with a virus(es) by an advertisement on deviantart.com. The first thing I noticed was being redirected to random websites after clicking on search results in google. Other problems include not being able to open any local folders. Booting to "Safe Mode" allows me to open folders on the hard drive. One of this first things I tried was running malwarebytes. The malwarebytes application would not run. I downloaded and installed the latest version but the mbam.exe was magically deleted by the end of the installation. I was able to rename the mbam.exe to mbam2.exe before the installation was complete. This allowed me to run the application which found many viruses and repaired them. However, my problems mentioned before did not go away. I then ran Dr. Web Cureit and also (I'm sorry) Combofix.exe. Dr. Web Cureit would find the backdoor.tdss.565 on running applications and would eradicate it, but it kept coming back. It also found backdoor.tdss.1133, which I haven't been able to find anything about. I've also tried running Rootkit Buster and Spybot S&D but neither of these applications will even install. I'm not sure what, but I'm sure I've attempted many other things. I've been working at this for days.

I still cannot open folders and IE keeps redirecting me to random sites. Please Help!!!!

Thank you for your time.
