I am here in hopes that someone may be able to shed light on the current issue that I have been dealing with. Around the date of April 9th my PC was infected with a Windows Security Tool. After running Malware Bytes, and Combofix the issue seemed to resolved, but within a 24 hour time period the issue was back but apparently in a different form. This time my Norton AV had begun detecting Packed.Generic.295, again the issue was seemingly resolved with runs of Malware Bytes, and Combofix. However, another day after my Norton AV is continually blocking intrusion attempts from websites identical to the ones found in member S.Daedalus's post found here:

I have since been following the actions on this thread, as our symptoms are nearly identical, with Google Chrome inoperable, and random popup tabs in Firefox. I have religiously updated Spybot, Malware Bytes, and Combofix, none of which find any issues upon scans. I am fully aware that the infection remains on my system, but directionless in attempts to neutralize it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

TDSS is a bad rootkit and will require specialized tools to remove. Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.
