Also, not sure if this is because of my ISP, Comcast, but my internet connection has been shifty, just dying on me at random times or becoming very slow.

http://remove-malware.com/malware/malware-...ches-atapi-sys/ says "I was still getting all searches in any browser redirected to scam sites. I usually don't like running Combofix on Vista, but I had no choice. Sure enough Combofix detected a rootkit and disinfected it! Again, the rootkit infected the atapi.sys driver which redirected all searches and probably downloaded a few randomly named exe's to the system32 directory."
Sounds about right. I've never used ComboFix before... Advice on usage or not please!
