I seem to have been infected by something (my guess is malware). I am unable to update Win Defender (error code 0c80072efe), and I randomly get a redirect to random software pages on firefox. I have run a whole host of programs for removal. I have run the following in both Normal and Safe Mode:

Avast free
A squared free
HiJack This
Windows Defender

Each has caught something or another at one point and deleted the files, however the issue still remains. I have the latest HJT log as well as the latest SAS log. I can post them upon request. I am running Win XP SP3. Any help will be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance. :-)
