I keep getting messages from Avast that a malicious URL has been blocked in process C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe
It also discovered a rootkit when I ran a boot scan.

I've tried to get rid of this but it keeps returning:(
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please post the complete results of your TDSSkiller scan for review.

After running TDSSkiller, a log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt will have been created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:). Open that file in notepad, then copy and paste the contents in your next reply.
