Today, I've been victim to some sort of virus or something. It started about 3 hours earlier while I was playing Garry's Mod. My computer, Windows 7 Pro, suddenly received a buttload of UAC things. I was in shock at the moment, so I denied access for everything that came up, unfortunately, I must have done something wrong, because my computer restarted. The next time I booted up, I was faced with Antivir and Antimalware Doctor. I deleted the processes, and, as I was still in shock, started up everything I had at the moment, Malware Bytes, Ad-Aware, and Hitman Pro. Both Ad-Aware and Malware Bytes picked up a few trojans and rogues, I deleted them. Hitman Pro on the other hand. I was chock full of tracking cookies, malware, and rootkits. Unfortunately, my license for HP had expired a month back, so I couldn't do anything about this. Google Chrome, the browser I usually use, didn't work. It wouldn't load up anything, so I'm using Firefox at the moment. I've downloaded ThreatFire and am scanning right now, as well as scanning with Malware Bytes, on a full scan this time. All is quiet right now, but Hitman Pro can't connect to the internet for some reason, so I don't have a way to check if the stuff is gone. Chrome is also still unusable.

I have logs, but I wasn't sure where to post this so I started here.

Thanks in advance, I'll provide anything additional, if you'd like, also.

Hello as you are loaded with Rootkits your options are a re install, or you need to do this.
Please go here....

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

New topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic338599.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
