I have about 5 machines having problems. I have already ran combofix and rkill. When i try to install avg free, it gives me the error message that "something bad has happened to the application". Also if i use Microsoft Securtiy Essentials it will install no problem, but will not update. I found a atapi.sys rootkit and a intellppm.sys rootkit. Autoruns and hijackthis look normal. Also I have pull the hard drive out of the system and scanned the drive as a slave in a different computer. I scanned the drives with norton, microsoft security, avg, malware bytes, and also super anti-spyware.
If I go to windows updates, it will not display the page. Host file is clean, and the dns is not set to a bogus address.
The system also had some trash called xp smart scan that was poping up, in the doc and settings/local/ave.exe, but combofix cleaned that.
