First it seemed as if I had the Vista Security virus because I received popups saying that I have a virus and it needs to perform a scan immediately. I used AVAST and it showed truly that I had numerous viruses and that they removed them. However, later on my computer was still acting wierd so I downloaded Malwarebytes to scan my computer and it also showed I had a virus and that it deleted it but my computer still was acting funny. When I access the security center it shows that I have no active antivirus software running and it doesn't allow me to make any changes. During research I found bleepingcomputer.com and tried to follow the advice given to another member about how to remove the virus. I ran combofix and it showed I had Rootkit Zeroaccess on my computer and shows that it removed it. I was afraid to continue to use AVAST because the Vista Security virus inactived it so I deleted it. I also want to delete Malwarebytes and add a fresh copy however I can't delete it either. I can't do system restore or system recovery because the computer won't allow me to. I just deleted Avast on 12-22-11 and currently this is the only website I'm accessing on my computer to get help with resolving the issue. I guess I'm outta options on what to do. Please help because I'm afraid to use my computer for anything other than trying to get assistance to resolve this issue. Thanks in advance. Sorry. I'm also using Windows Vista Home Basic,32-bit OPS, I have Malwarebytes on my account however its supposed to be not running.

Hello 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.
