Just did this and it absolutely worked.  Spent hours troubleshooting and this was the good fix.

While TDSS Killer removed the rootkits, one thing all of you should know is that rootkits more often than not include trojan downloaders which download and install additional malware without your knowledge meaning your computer still has malware.

Install, update and perform full scans with both of the scanners below.
