My browser is getting redirected whenever i do a search and click on the links

Over the past 2 days i have scanned my system with

Malaware bytes

Spyboat has removed around nine Registry Keys that pointed to FraudSys,smithFraud..etc. And yesterday malaware has removed 2 entries like Allapie worm i guess.

Every time i see the browser getting redirected i run Adware and i see some 8-10 Infectuous Cookies getting installed in my system. I am not sure from where these are coming.

After reading the forums here i am coming to an understanding that my Atapi.sys is infected with a root kit. Also i find my Atapi.sys got modified 3 days back. I see the Atapi.sys in system32/drivers folder is different from i386\atapi.sys on my forum.

I tried using combofix following the detailed instructions given in this site. But isee combofix starts running, it creates a folder in C drive and put lots of files in there , but after some time i don't see any response.

I have already spent more than 2 days on this.

Any help i will be really grateful

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
