possible rootkit infection not detected by malwarebytes

Recommended Posts


I have a system that is defying all my attempts thus far to root out whatever is infecting it. I think it's some form of rootkit that has thus far eluded all of my meager attempts at squashing so I am hopeful that one of the gurus here can help me get rid of it.

The symptoms are: internet explorer sometimes will run and sometimes it won't, google searches are being redirected to other sites, run dll as an app errors occur when trying to access Add/Remove programs applet in Control Panel, permissions issues when logged in as the user who uses this system, etc.

Any help you can offer to help me on this is greatly appreciated!!
