My computer has become infected and as soon as I realized it, I ran an Avast scan (or 100) and a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan (or 100 also). They were able to quarantine/remove whatever they found. I rebooted my system (Windows 7) and did more scans... nothing else was found. I've even performed a boot-time scan with Avast.

Even still, I cannot enable Windows Update, my Windows Defender was disabled (I've removed a suspicious registry key, and have since been able to re-enable Defender, but cannot run update for new definitions), and can only run certain malware scanners. For instance, Spybot was able to open, but cannot update definitions, so can't run scan; HiJackThis cannot run; ComboFix cannot run, etc.

I am at my wits end... someone please help!

Nobody has any advice as to any other kind of scan to run or any other registry keys that may need to be [re]altered?
