    I hope someone can help me, I have a 32 bit laptop with XP Pro installed, and it is infected with a browser hijacker, I also had a problem with my pc clock not being recognized by a diagnostic program I use, and I think the hijacker caused this also.

    I ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing, I ran HJT and it found noting, so I tried to run combofix, Combo fix downloads the microsoft recovery consol and says install was successfull, then it says scanning for infected files, this might take ten minutes etc etc, but it can sit for hours with the curser blinking, I eventually have to shut the laptop down using the power button. I also tried TDSSkiller but it would not run, I tried combofix and TDSS in safe mode but they still would not run.

    Anyone any idea how I can clean the laptop.
