Hello. I have been dealing with a rootkit for some time now. One laptop is damaged beyond repair, wn't even start anymore. 

What I see is services running in the background that shouldn't be, consuming massive RAM. High levels of internet traffic. When I choose to show all hidden files and folders as well as system files, and I go into %/APPDATA/% there are files that shouldn't be there as well as copies of my OS. There are changes to the registry, where I can see all the kits loaded. I'd no longer have admin rights nor be able to access things like in the control panel or certain files or folders. Programs were installing themselves on my computer. 


Last night I wiped the drive, reinstalled Vista. I look today, and even though nothing is running, Trusted Installer is, and the HDD is whirring as if it were incredibly busy. I've booted into Safe Mode w/Networking, and when I opened IE to download Chrome, which I am using to post this), for a brief second I saw something about only running once in the URL space. I know what this means. Before I wiped last night, the entire desktop had changed. Remote Access was granted even though I keep it disabled. Services I'd disabled were active again and I was unable to stop them. 


Please help. DDS logs below, and thank you so much in advance.
