Ran GMER and it found TDL4@MBR rootkit. Removed it with TDSSkiller.exe from kaspersky, rebooted, and all seems fine (for now). I have spent over a week looking for solutions, more in the last few days as the problem seemed to grow worse. After dozens of sites suggested things that did nothing and sometimes made things worse, it's a relief to finally find a place with useful information. If all stays well it probably saved me an expensive repair as well as down time on a machine I use for work.
