Hello all, lately I've been having issues with this work computer, it will randomly disconnect from the network and I lose the ability to click on certain items on my screen. When this happens I can right click on the desktop and the context menu comes up, but I can't click (right or left) on anything in the task bar or click the start menu.
If I hit CTRL+ALT+Delete I can click on the options but I cannot click on the cancel button.
A few previous techs have opted to try working on this machine, and have run TDSSKiller, Combofix, Malwarebytes, GMER, Catchme, and housecall.
Thankfully the computer is still running normally except for the issues described above. I did find the Catchme.log file when that program was run, I figured I should post it here to get started:

catchme 0.3.1398 W2K/XP/Vista - rootkit/stealth malware detector by Gmer, http://www.gmer.net
Rootkit scan 2011-12-19 17:20:40
Windows 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1

detected NTDLL code modification:
ZwEnumerateKey 0 != 116, ZwQueryKey 0 != 244, ZwOpenKey 0 != 182, ZwClose 0 != 50, ZwEnumerateValueKey 0 != 119, ZwQueryValueKey 0 != 266, ZwOpenFile 0 != 179, ZwQueryDirectoryFile 0 != 223, ZwQuerySystemInformation 0 != 261Initialization error


I read in another post that this usually means there is rootkit activity or there was. Help!

OS: Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Intel Core 2 Quad

I don't know what that has to do with my issue, I'm not getting redirects, and I have no problem running scanners....

I think it would help to see the GMER and ComboFix logs with a DDS log.

Having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you posted earlier.

Let me know if that went well.

Thank you. Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 3 - 5 days and ALL logs are amswered.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
