Use TheKiller, do not reboot followed by MalwareBytes and ( TDSSKiller or ComboFix)
Download TheKiller to your Desktop
http://maliprog.geekstogo.com/explorer.exe
http://www.osvemu.com/thekiller/v02/explorer.exe

Note that "TheKiller" is renamed as explorer.exe
Double click on it (If running Vista or Windows 7, right click on it and select "Run as an Administrator")
Press OK button after program finish
Do not restart your system after this step. You then run other tools like MalwareBytes, TDSSKiller or ComboFix.


OR, follow this tutorial at Bleepingcomputer.

TheKiller also does what Rkill and Unhide.exe does.
