I ran Rkill to stop any malware and then successfully ran MBAM. MBAM found 75 trojans (some listed in the description of this thread). I removed them using MBAM. I also ran SAS and it found a few things too. After completing the two scans, I rebooted the computer. I did this three times, only to have the same problems as stated beforehand (each time the scans found less and less threats).
I have ran TDSS twice with no results. I left the computer for a while and came back after about four hours. It had shut itself down. So in one last attempt, I restarted and re-ran Rkill, MBAM, SAS, and TDSS (in that order). Results? Nothing. Not one "threat" was detected in each scan HOWEVER, I am still infected because I am still having the same problems (i.e. pop ups, missing desktop, redirects, etc).
Please help! Thanks in advance!
One more thing! I deleted the outdated (and thus not activated) Norton and installed MSSE.
