Hello, over the past few days I seem to be getting redirected to things totally unrelated to my searches in both google and firefox. I am really worried that I have the virus and that it infected my modem. My modem is a Motorola SB1520 Surfboard cable modem...which I have no idea how to hard reset. I checked online and it mentions that there is a button in the back to use a paperclip on...but I can assure you there is no button. I thoroughly check...so I guess if my modem has been infected...I will have to buy a new one. I need some help from you computer experts out there, to find out if either my modem and/or computer is infected, with what and how to fix it. I have been running various protection programs I have which include: MBAM, Super Anti Spyware, UVK (Ultimate Virus Killer), Registry Mechanic, (which isn't working now most likely due to registry errors?) Combofix and I even downloaded your program RKill and used that to. I have gone into my hosts/lmhosts folders and deleted all the IP addresses that were listed besides my own. I have done the ipconfig/flushdns and I have also checked to see if XUL cache 1.0 was in my firefox add ons, but it wasn't so I didn't need to delete it. I have made sure all my protection programs were fully updated when running full system/quick/critical scans. I have been doing a lot of research on the internet and I have tried all that I could do fix this and I still keep getting pop-ups and redirects (but not as much as before). I really need someones help with this. I would greatly appreciate a walk through.
Here is a log for my recent RKill scan:

Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.
Rkill was run on 02/15/2012 at 20:43:14.
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:
Rkill completed on 02/15/2012 at 20:43:21.
I have also noticed that my task manager is running 22 processes.
How do I permanently removed these threats from my system:
I also have about svchost.exe processes running in my task manager? Can I terminate these?
I terminated the wininit.exe process and then I got the BSOD and then my computer shutdown?
How can I delete these problems, without causing my system to get the BSOD? I really need some serious help.
