It is better to download these programs from different websites than the original ones because the malware writers know that people will try and use these sites to get the programs and often block them from the infected computers.
Please download HiJackThis from http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/ Choose the executable and save it on your desktop. Run the file and select the first option on the main menu "Do a system scan and save a log file". When this is finished, Notepad will open with the log file in it. Save the log file and attach it to a post here via the Add Attachments under the orange Post button Please don't attempt to fix anything that it shows until someone checks out the log. Thanks. It should be version 2.0.2
Download the free version, install and update then run a FULL scan. After the scan completes you should post the logs back to this thread.
You can find Malwarebytes here
It is a safer location to get the program from than malwarebytes themselves because the malware writers some times block the security programs' websites.
Ummmm, The poster already has Hijackthis as seen by the posted log and Malwarebytes as seen by the posted screenshot.

The log that was posted originally was from an older version of HiJackThis. When I recently posted a link for HiJackThis, I was told I was posting a link to the older one instead of the current 2.0.2 one. Therefore I thought that perhaps the 2.0.2 one might help more than the older one.
Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

I ran the NRT. Then NBRT. It found nothing. So just for good measure I ran NRT again. Restarted. Then tried installing NIS again. It installed. And then almost immediately I got the CCSVCHST error. Then the Symantec Service Framework crash. Then it won't let me connect to the Internet. And it won't let NIS scan my computer.

You could try a scan with Prevx, the free version will remove adware and MBR rootkits but you have to pay for it to remove any other malware that it finds. Detection is free, they claim to have the largest threat database in the world. If it finds something it will tell you what and hopefully where it is and you can go from there. Prevx
Note: I just read your latest post, Prevx wont work without an internet connection, after your connectivity is restored you can try it.

Heh, yeah. I didn't remind re-doing the work... anything to get my computer back running again. I need it for school. Do you have any ideas to help me, Quads?
I no longer Remove Malware whether rootkits like TDL 3, rogues or the like on this forum.
