Basically I have a redirect virus that is somehow attached to my svchost.exe . Malwarebytes finds it, kills it , but upon reboot, it keeps coming back. Spybot also found it & said this in the log : "(SBI $5926A588) Executable" & the location was "C:\Windows\svchost.exe" . Spybot also came up with win32.dapato.rtk . Tddskiler came up with Boot.Pihar.b rootkit & says it killed it but this thing keeps coming back. I have also noticed that it has gotten into my email (yahoo) and has sent emails to people in my contacts. I am about ready to wipe this thing clean but I really dont want to.

You guys are my only hope! Please someone help me out.

Appreciate ya help in advance.

Let me know what I should do.
