It's looks as though you're in the middle of getting help at the Avast forum. They are on the right track.

I would suggest posting the log they recently requested, and following up with them from there.

Best of luck!

I know exactly this issue, which is specific to windows 7 x64
AFAIK the only tool to deal with it is Mcafee's RootkitRemover.


Hope it helps!! Happy
