Most of my search engine links (google, bing) are being redirected to bogus sites and there are also pop-up bogus "surveys" that appear form time to time.

MBAM is showing a rootkit.agent infection in \windows\system32\drivers\cilzvn.sys. I've been working on this for several days and cannot rid myself of the file. I've already run combofix and I guess my last resort is the CFscript.txt to pass to combofix but I don't know exactly what the script should say. I will refrain from posting the combofix log until someone asks as requested.

When a computer has been infected with a Rootkit, even after getting rid of it, you can never be sure that your machine will be stable again.
Your best bet would be to wipe and run a clean install.
