Firefox and Chrome redirecting, Norton Antivirus disabled
First of all, thanks to everyone that helps out at this site!

So, I've noticed my PC being slow in the last few days, and the hard drive making that "I'm working" sound constantly (not normally the case, I've got 4 gigs of ram and over a terabyte of storage.)

Then I started noticing a lot of sites redirecting. This didn't alarm me until sites I know and visit often did it, and then Chrome started doing it too.

When I noticed that today, and downloaded AdAware, after rebooting I got a Windows Security alert warning that Norton Antivirus' status was unknown. Opening Norton, Autoprotect was turned off and clicking "Enable" produces no result.

I've scanned with Norton (prior to it going down), Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, and AdAware, and they all came back negative. Well, Spybot found some tracker cookies, but getting rid of them didn't help.

Needless to say, I'm stumped. Here's the log:

Solved it myself, finally. When AdAware did their latest update, it finally caught the culprit: a daodal trojan. AdAware couldn't remove it, though, so I had to run ComboFix. That got the bugger!
