Malware has been detected on my computer and I cannot seem to to get rid of it. AdAware detected the rootkit specified in the post title, and what sound like radio ads are playing even when I have no programs running. I downloaded and ran the DDS program but the dds.txt file did not generate. The attach.txt file did generate but I can't attach it since I had to write this on my iPad (see below).
I'm trying to give as much information as possible, so here are two more issues that I believe are related:
1. IE was barraged with unrequested cookies from random websites until I changed the settings to reject all cookies. IE and Firefox also now take 1-2 minutes to load a page, and in some cases never load it. This is also what happened when I tried to submit this post from my computer (I'm now typing this on my iPad).
2. McAfee has blocked about 25 executions of svchost.exe as mass mailing worms. I can upload that log file if needed.
Please help me get rid of the malware on my computer, and adjust my settings to increase security and prevent future infections.
