Hello Everyone,

I am a newbie with computers but I got this nasty bug that just won't go away. It started out as XP Security Protection or something of the sort and was constantly trying to download things onto my computer and warn me . I got rid of this by running "rkill" and then "malwarebytes anti-malware". There still
seems to be a bug on my computer though that is affecting me when I click on any search results in mozilla firefox and is disabiling my google chrome from working. From my research this seems to be TDL3 rootkit but I am not sure. I wanted to get your guys help if I have to run combofix as I know it is a serious program for professionals only. I also have in the meantime run Hitmanpro 3.5 from Cnet , ESET Nod32 antivirus, CCleaner, and Superantispyware, and HostXpert to no avail.

Thanks everyone for reading!
