[Solved] irp hook removal rootkit

Specs: Windows XP
I followed the directions on the original posting from 2011. I have just gotten this infection. I ran the three downloads as described in the original posting but on the second step, the tdss killer, it found no threats. If I checked the additional two options in the scan parameters then it found three threats and immediately I got the blue windows error screen and my computer rebooted. I ran the three steps again, rkill.exe, tdss killer without checking the additional scan parameters and malwarebytes antimalware. the tdss killer and the malwarebytes showed no threats but if I run avg free it still shows threats and is unable to remove them. Can anyone suggest a new resolution to this?

Did you undertake these actions in SAFE MODE ?

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

No, I didn't use safe mode, in the original posting, it said to follow exactly and did not specify safe mode. will try that and get back to you later. thanks

Edit- I tried safe mode and same thing, when I got to the tdss killer it scanned with no threats, but when i clicked the additional two options in the parameter settings, it found three threats and then kept popping up an error box that said unknown hard error. I clicked ok and/or X but box kept popping up non stop and could not do anything else until I rebooted. I even tried system restore but it went thru to whole restore and after rebooting said unable to restore to that time and date. Am ready to give up and just wipe hard drive.
