How did you go about disabling Malwarebytes? If you just did it through the system tray try this way - go to settings then to Detection and Protection then to the side and disable both protections. Also how did you disable Avast?

Sometimes Combofix refuses to run don't know why. Anyways is your computer still running slowly? Are you sure you completely disabled MBAM/Avast? Did ESET uninstall without a hitch?
There are two other rootkit scanners we can run if you want but it's unlikely they'll dig anything else up we could try though.
I have attempted to run Combofix 3 more times. However, it still seems to freeze every time. My computer appears to be running a bit faster. However, it is very slow in starting Google Chrome. I would be willing to use the two other root kits if you think they might help.
Thanks for your patience and commitment to helping me resolve this issue.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Oh, yes, I disabled both MBAM and Avast. I also. The deinstallation of ESET went without a hitch as well.
You still with me? This is the last scan to make sure you're 100% clean. If you don't wish to let me know and I can give you my all speech if everything is good.
I'll have to close this thread due to inactivity without a reply. Please let me know if you wish to continue.
I am attempting to run the rootkit right now. I will post just as soon as it finishes.
Also, I uninstalled ESET completely before installing AVAST. I am no longer getting the Chrome 126.96.36.199. However, Chrome is very slow starting.
Hi unique. There's some malware present there. Please hold off on using your computer while I create a fix for you.
Hi unique. I think you might have a hardware issue possibly a dying hard drive. How old is your computer? Do you have your data backed up? If not do not use your computer at all until we get the data backed up - if the hard drive dies it could cost up to $3500 to salvage the data. All the utilities we ran came up clean. The GMER malware I noticed was from a previous infection when you dealt with emeraldnzl here in 2009. You are running boot camp on a mac right? Do you have access to the manual that came with the computer? It will have instructions on how to run a hard drive diagnostic we can follow after we back up your data if it's not already. Please let me know if you have any questions or problems. For now just let me know the answers to these questions.
