Hello. I have a customers machine that refuses to get clean. I previously ran combofix on it and it claimed to be infected with rootkit.zeroaccess but subsequent scans have found nothing. I've not been able to get GMER to run, it causes an error about another instance of a driver already running.

Here's my DDS logs
