So, I ran Malwarebytes (lastest version) and it found a bunch of "whitesmoke toolbar" files that were only in the Google Chrome folders so that's kinda weird. Anyways, I deleted all traces and rebooted, yet the process was still there. So, I tried running MSE again to find out this time I can't even get it to start, it shuts down immediately. So, I uninstalled that and got the lastest version of AVAST! and that ended up finding some rootkit virus that it TRIED to remove but failed to do so. I search the net to find this app called aswMBR that said it fixed the problem, but it didn't.
Search the net some more and gathered up some stand alone removers like TDDSKILLER (found nothing), OTL, OTC, TFC, Eset Online Scanner (found nothing). I then tried to use all these in Safe Mode, still NOTHING. So I came here, downloaded Combofixer but when trying to run it, it gives me Win32 error in which I ignored but then it tells me that MSE is still running which is impossible because I COMPLETELY removed that. I am seriously STUCK and have no energy left to do this my on my own.
I know this is very long and may be confusing but I wanted to be as thorough as possible in hopes to maybe skip a few "basic" steps. I usually would re-format at this point but I'm tired of always taking the easy way out. Please could someone help me out, I'd appreciate it so much. Thanks.
