The story is as follows:
Suspected that I have malware, also, I get constant messages like "L'application n'a pas réussi à s'initialiser correctement (0xc0000005). Cliquez sur OK pour arrêter l'application" (meaning "the application did not manage to intialise correctly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to stop the application", as mine's on a french operating system, the messages are in french) often whenever I restart my computer or when I try to start certain applications. Mozilla firefox doesn't work and neither does Windows explorer. Google Chrome's the only browser that works for me now.
I finally decided yesterday to try to remove as much malware as is humanly possible.
Did a scan with SUPER AntiSpyware and it got blocked at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\MMIOPORT.sys. Left it running the whole night but it was still blocked at it the next morning. Tried to cancel the running of SUPER AntiSpyware but failed. Had to force cancel it by cancelling the related process on Windows Task Manager.
Googled MMIOPORT.SYS and found a link to a post in a forum with the title "Virus inituser.exe". In the post, the poster said that he managed to solve his malware problem with Combofix. Inspired, I installed Combofix from the official bleepingcomputer source and ran it after desactivating my firewall and antivirus. It ran for one hour and got blocked at "Completed Stage_2". I'm convinced that it doesn't take more than one hour to run, so something must be amiss. Would appreciate lots if some enlightened soul would be able to point me in the right direction!
Anyway, after being tired of waiting, I stopped it by clicking on the cross sign. Went to delete MMIOPORT.sys from C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ as I thought it could be a trojan file. Ran SUPER AntiSpyware again and now it gets blocked at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\kdbclass.sys!
Seeing that I can't simply just delete every driver file from the C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ directory. I prefer to join the forum and run up this post blatantly yelling for help! Will follow every step to get to the truth. Thanks in advance!
