Hi. My nettop has been hijacked. When I search, I am redirected to an advertising page.

I tried stopping the process with RKILL.EXE but I only get a brief CMD (1/2 second) window, repeated three or four times. I tried other renamed versions of RKILL with the same results.
I removed the HD from the nettop and plugged it as USB in my home computer; Norton finds BOOT.TIDSERV but cannot remove it.

The HD is back on the nettop, running WindowsXP sp3, Norton Security Suite and Malwarebytes. Can you help me?
