I ran MalwareBytes and Spybot after renaming the EXE's, as they would not run without being renamed. I did this in both safe mode and standard mode. Several items (I cannot recall what, sorry) were found and the dialogs went away. However, I still could not run these tools without renaming them.
After doing some searching on Google to find what the problem may be, I noticed strange redirects to other websites when certain links were clicked and popunders. I also was unable to access several security related sites through the browser, including AVG, etc. I only use Firefox.
I've run several scans since with several tools, including Dr.Web, which reports Backdoor.Tdss.565, which it claims it has eradicated, but problems still persist. Other tools have claimed to have found and removed "ernel32.dll." Admittedly, I've also used a couple of other tools to no avail, including TDSSKiller, rkill and ComboFix. I hope the latter does not preclude me from being helped.
Thanks in advance. Log files coming shortly...
