Got hit and first noticed that McAfee went away and Malwarebytes would not run.

With help of online posts, renamed mbam.exe and in last three runs I hit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\H8SRT (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Each reset seems to get be me back to clean - I can tell because McAfee and mbam.exe will launch Ok, do updates, etc., but then either through reboot or over time, I'm back to the same problem. Also, IE history shows a bunch of sites being accessed without my knowledge

I've read that combofix should do the job, but wanted to confirm.
