Hello, this is a first post for me. I'm so happy to have found this site, and I hope that someone can help me.

I run Windows XP Professional 2002 version 3, and have Microsoft Security Essentials Version: 1.0.1963.0 / Antimalware Client Version: 2.1.6805.0 / Engine Version: 1.1.6004.0 / Antivirus definitions: / Antispyware definitions: I use Windows Firewall, but no other firewall program. Yesterday I installed Threatfire, but this was after I had a rogue program installed on my computer:

I got an 'Antimalware Doctor' rogue program 2 days ago, thought it was removed, but there are residual problems. When it popped up, I immediately turned off my computer to discontinue the internet connection, but it was still on when I restarted. I know these programs disable Windows Task Manager, so the first thing I did was pull that up so it could be on. I noticed a process called '070700setup.exe' running and I ended that process. That seemed to have stopped the Antimalware Doctor from doing anything immediate.

I ran a Microsoft Security Essentials full scan, and it found the following items:
virus: Win32/Alureon.H
Exploit: Java/CVE-2009-3867.EZ
Adware: win32/SpartAdsSolutions

the first 2 were Quarantined and the Adware was removed.

I then ran a full Malwarebytes scan, and removed the items it found. Here's the log from this scan:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.46

Database version: 4325

Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.5512

C:\WINDOWS\Temp\6D.tmp (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

After I removed the items, my computer seemed back to normal. However, I began to notice that when i'd click on a link from a Google search, it often redirected me to another site. This doesn't happen with every search. It seems to be a common problem with this kind of rogue program, so obviously some of the remnants are still on my computer.

Also, since I had this, my Microsoft Security Essentials can't update their definitions. I haven't found a way to fix this problem.

Can someone help? I greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
