BRIEF BACKGROUND
Two weeks ago, Avira's rescue CD reported for one computer: "Contains code of the Boot.1 virus". However, the closest match in their database is W-Boot.1 for which an alias is Dr. Web's WBoot. Malwarebytes saw nothing. AVG saw nothing. Dr. Web reported for another computer: "A: Boot Sector" and status as "NYB". but I tried detected anything. Since then, suspicious activities continued even though no antimalware solution is able to detect anything. Disabling network access is a primary activity of this virus. It also deletes and corrupts various device drivers or files associated with their functioning, interferes with OS repair and installation, sometimes interferes with antimalware installation, and occasionally hides the d: hard disk. My lans on 4 computers show a red X, saying that "A network cable is unplugged." A total of 7 nics on 4 computers have been affected. I previously got DSL access back for about 24 hours by fdisk/format and by System Restore. I was able to get dialup access back by installing a new OS.

CURRENT ISSUES
After flashing the bios, cleaning the mbr by fdisk /mbr and fdisk/mbr, formatting the whole hard disk, and reinstalling XP on one of the computers, I'm unable to get dsl internet access back. When I tried to format, it aborted twice at 27% with the message "not ready" before it went through all the way. One lan shows a red X, saying that "A network cable is unplugged." Another nic that installed many times before keep getting installation errors. A third nic that installed many times before cannot be detected. Also, I'm not getting audio. Compared to previous fdisking and formatting that brought back dsl for about 24 hours on this same computer, I have a flash drive with some backup data plugged in. Could that be the reason?

I'm thinking that the virus could have displaced the mbr. I read about a virus that moved the mbr to sector 7 of track 0 and redirected examination of itself to the mbr.

I'm thinking of editing track 0 (location of a possible hidden virus
and displaced mbr) and repairing with XP's fixboot and fixmbr.

Can I repair XP SP3 with SP1 CD and follow up with SP3 update?
Alternatively, would I have to combine XP SP1 with SP3 update by a
"slipstreaming process"? Has anybody done slipstreaming?

I have a flash drive with some backup data plugged in. Could that be the reason?

Yes, most definitely the backup data may very well be infected. I hate to tell you but you really should clean out that flash drive completely, even though you will lose backup data, there is no way of knowing exactly what is infected on there but it should go to be safe.
The second thing, if I am reading this correctly, these 4 computers are networked together. You need remove that networking for now and work on only ONE computer and get it clean. Install all new copies of the software you use, don't use backups if at all possible.

After that one computer is clean then, don't network it to others but pick another and get that one also clean, and so on. After all computers are clean is when you can then network them together.
Looking at the DDS scans there are unknown files running on both of those logs, are these from two different computers or did you just post the log twice?
The files showing as running when the scans were done and which are unknown for sure are:
C:\Documents and Settings\XPUser\My Documents\Downloads\qby679ys.exe

The MBA-M scan is obviously not correct because it shows a full scan was run but the number of Objects scanned: 114758 but it only took 12 minutes to run. This cannot be correct. A full scan should have taken at least one hour.

Frankly, I would just do a full reformat on that one computer, using your Windows CD it would as quick or quicker rather than trying to repair. Install all your drivers from your drivers disk so that you can go online then go to the Windows Update and update to SP3. Get that one computer up and running, download and install a NEW copy of Avira, a new copy of MBA-M, update them of course. Do full scans with both to be certain the computer is totally clean. Then do the same with each of the other computers. Then and only then begin to network the computers together, one at a time.
Don't use that flash drive unless you can be absolutely certain it is 100% clean.

The most heavily infected was the Dell. I flashed the bios, used Avira boot virus removal tool, installed Linux (Freespire followed by Ubuntu Desktop), fdisked, and reformatted with windows, reinstalled Windows, and ran ComboFix (found 3 infected system files). I've scanned many times with Avira, Dr. Web, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro, DDS, GMER, etc., but found nothing.

I haven't seen any suspicious symptoms for a week or so. I was browsing earlier today when the Dell froze with a blue screen. After rebooting, I lost my DSL. The DSL network icon is gone. The modem icons are present, but modified and nonfunctional. The modem and nics are gone from Device Manager. These are some of the symptoms I had before. Could my computer have gotten reinfected by a website?

Could my computer have gotten reinfected by a website?

Absolutely, or a download, an email...
Who told you to run combofix? Where are the logs? Are you 100% familiar with combofix and how to read and interpret each and every line of the logs? Just running combofix does not necessarily remove all infection, it can remove some of the infected files but very often additional steps are required. Am very confused as to why, after a full wipe and reformat there would be infected files found UNLESS the disk used either was not legal OR was an image of the computer with the infected files in the image. A full reformat and reinstall should have totally wiped the hard drive.

There are numerous posts all over the web stating that some viruses are able to survive high formatting; low formatting had to be used to get rid of them. I had already tested and discovered on another hard disk that my virus(es) survived bios flashing, fixing boot record and high formatting. Fdisking without low formatting appeared to have gotten rid of them on the test system. I'm hoping that I wouldn't have to low format and destroy my disk caching. My Windows 2000 installation CD's are legal (having received them as a Microsoft Academy student) and have been used for installation many times over the years without infection problems.

I don't know how to interpret Combofix logs. A Malwarebytes staff member asked me to run it. I posted various logs of the Dell were posted Mar 29 2010, 11:10 PM, Post #11 at http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=43559&st=20&gopid=231386&#entry231386
He had been examing my logs for the Asus. It will probably be a while before he looks at my Combofix logs on the Dell. Below is a newer Combofix log done on April 7th. Thanks.

David, I am sorry, but since this was requested by another forum you are going to have to stick with what you are doing there. Using two forums to repair something is a very bad idea. Steps given by each could conflict and cause more problems than you have now. Since the malwarebytes' forum (which is excellent) requested the Combofix run then you are going to have to stick with them on this one through to the end and we can no longer offer assistance for this problem here.
