I've worked around it and removed any suspicious exe's from the processes and found a couple of the mimic security clients and anti-malwares that are just junk themselves. I removed those with RevoUninstaller. I ran Registry First Aid, defragged and compressed everything, and both SuperAnitSpyware and MalwareBytes. Each found a few files that I already removed and can't recall what they were called. Some were trojans, some were malware.
In the process I've tried to install EsetNod32 several times, and the computer is somehow blocking it. I removed both AVG free and Windows Security Essentials and attempted to install it again, and the installer locks up right at the start. It used to say "eset nod32 install ended prematurely because of an error your system is not modified" but now it doesn't even attempt to install.
I've also tried to turn on the Windows Firewall, and I get error "Windows Firewall Can't Change Some Of Your Settings. Error Code 0x80070424".
We've had a lot of slow connection issues on and off, and it seems to affect the router itself, as my school macbook connected to the wireless experiences connection issues with like Facebook and Yahoo the same time it messes up my dad's computer. I have to dump the cache, clear cookies, and restart usually to get it working again. I've recently reset my router and modem entirely, and after clearing the registry (the first time I ran the first aid I got 2000+ erros, but since it only yields like 2-40 at a time) the connection speeds have been more stable.
I'm concerned that I can't install my prefferred antivirus, the firewall wont turn on, and that I haven't completely eliminated the original infection. (Whatever it was??)
I wish I could tell you more, but since I don't run this computer often, and my dad has no idea what he's talking about, I can only give you this much to start with. I'm ready to run a hijackthis log if needed, and I know this forum is anti combofix and rkill and all that, but I have experience with them previously if need be, though I don't think this computer is that seriously bugged (I brought a computer from the graveyard that /everyone/ told me needed wiped and reimaged completely with help from this forum, so, I look forward to that again).
