I believe I have a phishing virus on my computer and need help removing it. The symptoms are when I visit my bank's website to access my account, after logging in, I am redirected to a page which is asking for personal information. When I contacted the bank, they confirmed that this is not legitimate request.

I am running Windows XP with McAfee Antivirus and Firewall (from Comcast) - this is not detecting any malware although the Systemguards feature detects an attempt to change the Windows Hosts file when I access the bank website. I have been indicating to block the change, however the redirection continues. An earlier McAfee scan had detected and appeared to remove Spy-Agent.bw!mem (Trojan).

I ran MBAM and removed several infected registry keys (6) and folders (1) and files (3) which were related to "Stolen.data (lowsec)". Most recent scan is now indicating no infections.

I ran Rootrepeal and believe it is indicating MBR Rootkit issue. Need help interpreting the log file.
