Thank you in advance for your time in reading and any recommendations you may have. basically, i'm in the exact same situation as this guy: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/314396/antimalware-doctor-not-quite-fully-removed/
i used MBAM to clean my laptop, which it did, but i am still being redirected to other sites. and unfortunately i can't access Windows Update either.
i've already run cmbofix - i had a rootkit infection which has been removed but something is still left behind. as soon as my laptop restarted during the the combofix procedure, a msg did appear from norton saying i had a virus - backdoor.Tidserv!inf - which i'm not sure if its been removed or not. i'm going to run some additional scans when i get home today on MBAM and norton.
if there are any further scans that are recommended, i would really appreciate the help. thanks again!
I've run Norton and mbam scans but no viruses or Trojan found. But I still can't access windows update, and I'm still getting Google re directs. I also noticed that my laptop doesn't hibernate anymore.

Edit: combofix is still finding the same rootkit virus located at c:\Windows\system32\drivers\Imapi.sys I'm not sure what to do from here.. is it possible to delete this file with the laptop on and replace with a clean version from another laptop via drag and drop? I'm using Windows xp and I have access to a network running the same. As I'm not sure what the Imapi file contains, I'm only having a guess at an option.
