Fast-forward during one of the steps, I was asked to clear my hosts so that the only hosts I had was the one 127 local host and the example with acme that windows provided. However, my hosts file looked something like this.
# Copyright © 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
...blah blah blah...
# For example:
# 220.127.116.11 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 18.104.22.168 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
Pretty much every guide I've been following as told me all I need is the 127 local host file, and said NOTHING about the ::1 host. But again, all those were geared towards Windows XP/Vista, and this does infact say localhost. So do I keep it?
* The virus supposedly changed my home page, I fixed that.
* The virus supposedly changed my LAN settings, I fixed that.
* Before and after I did the two steps beforehand, I scanned with TDSSKiller, and both times it got 0 results.
* I'm 100% certain that I have this virus.
