Good evening (or morning since it's 3 AM in my time zone), I'm having a bit of trouble removing what I am beginning to believe is a rootkit of some sort. It's my hope that you ladies and gentlemen can help me. First off, I want to thank you all for having such a forum available for people like me to get assistance. About two weeks ago, my computer got infected with that rogue software AV Security Suite. Malwarebytes got it off, but since then, I've been getting attacked by the IPs of 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. It also causes strange tabs to open in my browser, that redirect me to odd URLs in the address bar (most of the URLs apparently are nonexistent, since it redirects me back to Google). I would just like for this IP to stop attacking me and stop opening random weird URLs in my browser. I understand that my computer's security is more than likely greatly compromised at this point; and thus am planning to purchase an upgrade to Windows 7 (from Windows Vista). In the meantime, I'd just like to get rid of this . . .annoyance. I tried following all of the steps in the 8 Steps thread. Unfortunately, when I tried to run DDS, my computer promptly gave me the dreaded blue screen of death. I'm providing the logs I do have. Please let me know if I should try to run DDS again. Thank you.
