This is an update to the root kit nasty:
What I HAD
was a root kit called IRPhook which AVG root kit scan picked up.
What I did:
a) disabled System Restore.
b) updated Malwarebytes, Super Anti Spyware, CCleaner, AVG, Spyware Blaster.
c) cleaned out the Temp folder,
d) ran disc clean-up and defragged the PC
e) downloaded FSecure Black Light.
f) I ran all of the above utilities and the only one that picked up the root kit was AVG.
g) I did what avasive said and downloaded rkill, then ran Kasperski's utility which picked up a few nasties and followed through with cleaning them up. h) I then ran Malwarebytes which returned nothing.
i) I rebooted and ran all what evasive said again. Kasperski said all was clean.
j) I ran AVG again and checked for root kits and it found none.
So the root kit deal seems to be corrected and these nasties can be a real problem, I know.
The Windows Critical update issue has been corrected also.
Thanks to all who commented and helped, its appreciated. Thanks evasive....
