Virus infection that won't go away

Recommended Posts

I've been attempting to get rid of a virus/malware for the past few days that I got from a downloaded .exe program that I foolishly opened. When I opened the file, I had Sophos Anti-Virus running. Since then, I've installed Malwarebytes, and other programs to no avail. I've also run scans with Eset, Trend Micro, etc. I've uninstalled Sophos and put on Avast running a variety of scans, including boottime scans, again with no luck.

The virus does a few things

One it attempts to open my browser window to a variety of sites which Malwarebytes is often but not always successful in blocking. The IP addresses of these sites were at first (dutch) and late (german). The process that is being used for this is apparently rundll.exe. The more annoying this is that the virus disabled Windows Defender and Windows Security Center immediately and won't allow me to turn them back on, even from Services.

I am running Windows 7.

Below is the DDS file requested.
