Yesterday I got infected from the internet, first with a fake trojan and then with password.xgen and now rootkit, all at once. I ran Malwarebytes and found 16 infections and then ran Combofix and told me it found rootkit and ran Malwarebytes a couple more times until it found nothing, and ran anti-virus and found nothing. However every time I run Combofix, it tells me it found rootkit. Every other time I open a browser, it redirects my page, or if I open a new tab it says connecting but never opens. I changed the defaults of the browser to factory defaults but it didn't help. What else can I do? The OS is Windows XP SP3 and the browser is Internet Explorer 8. Thanks!
