I'm using XP Pro sp2 (pentium dual core 2.6 GHZ and 3 gb Ram with Webroot SpySweeper and AVG Free and Free Avast and it's been working great with 2 anti-virus programs for about 1.5 years. That's not the problem, but I think it's some kind of Root Kit Virus that turned the task bar white, it was blue when it was running great, and Webroot lost it's sheduling,(I can't set scan shedules), and in System Properties (can't view devices), and Avast is shut down (can't start it). I uninstalled Avast and then reinstalled it, same problem.
AVG is working perfectly, scanning on shedule and updating ok. AVG found 22 registry errors and took care of them. Webroot SpySweeper works ok but can't shedule scans.
All other programs work ok and open rather fast.
I ran RKill,Unhide, Combo Fix and TDSS Killer and still have the same problem.
Anybody have any Ideas what's going on here, I would greatly appreciate any help.

Since you have run ComboFix, please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log already generated in the new topic. Please DO NOT run ComboFix again unless instructed to do so. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
