Hi...I seem to be infected with the subject line and have tried everything possible, with no result! Hence my search led me here. I realise that there has been a similar thread but I feel my situation is a bit different so I would appreciate this being treated as a case. Basically my problems in order of priority are:

1. Rootkit.Win32.Agent.zl
2. Constant pop-ups if I do not deny access to IE through KAV.
3. Unkown icons on each of my hard drive partitions (eg 00007E00-01A801A8/00007E00-01A801A8_Backup). I have upto 4 of these files on each partition which cannot be deleted
4. General slowness of an otherwise "fastish machine" with a clean OS install and all existing software installed.
5. I feel my PC is eating up bandwidth on a small office network (this one may be my imagination)

I would like to send you the whole KAV Scan Report but the text file is too large and I cannot even attach it. But included below are the KAV Scan Details and Parameters and a HighJack This Log:
