I didn't notice any problem until a couple of days later when I was unable to access some websites. This problem is worse for Firefox, but there are some websites I cannot access on either Firefox or AOL/Internet Explorer.
I usually run AVG and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and was unable to find anything with these. In addition I have tried Trend Micro, Bit Defender, Lavasoft Adaware, Kaspersky, Panda Active Scan, F secure, Spybot S&D, SuperAntiSpyware, Hijack This and found nothing significant (only false positives as far as I can tell, Panda giving a Virtumonde in Viewpoint media player, Kaspersky saying I had a virus in my hosts file when in fact it was entries previously inserted by Spybot to block "bad sites").
I had some problem running rootkit detectors, although for Gmer I believe that was because I didn't have AVG disabled. With AVG disabled I was able to run a full Gmer scan although this took a long time and slowed down towards the end - I was able to save a log file before the CPU usage went to 100% and I had to manually switch the computer off.
I still have problems running some of the sections of Root Repeal - files, hidden services and shadow SSDT - it immediately goes to a BSOD with a bad pool header error.
I have also successfully run ComboFix but it only found and removed one entry under search assistant. Still the problem with getting to some websites remains.
ComboFix, Gmer and Hijack This logs are available if these are of any use.
Do I have a hard to find rootkit or some other problem?
