Running on Windows XP home edition.

The computer has been sluggish and grinding.

Google searches on firefox were redirecting to random sites.

Ran malwarebytes but it behaved oddly and indicated it had updated, but didn't appear to be an update process consistent with ones I remember.

Malware bytes scan stalled.

Ran Avira and it indicated Tr/Drop Tdss.MA but seems to have failed to delete it ( may have completed the delete task once I started in Safe mode)

TDSS Killer showed rootkit win32 backboot.gen but options on this suspicious file were to skip, restore or one other option I can't recall.

Am also receiving generic host 32 error "need to close"
