Can you get into Safe Mode? Get into Safe Mode and run Combofix. Run Malwarebytes in Safe Mode as well. Both of those should take care of it. If it's a rootkit you can also try TDSS Killer from Kaspersky.

Sorry, Acuradude. I'm in the same shoes as you are. The more I learn from this casualty the more I will be able to assist others in the future.

Use a bootable AV/anti-rootkit disk. I prefer this one. Combating viruses is always best done offline.

If you do not have a backup image for just this reason you are braver than me. Then again, I don't use any av at all and never get infected. But, I wouldn't dare go a even a week without backing up a new install.

Security through obscurity; yay FBSD? Templi's advice is solid; but I have to ask, you've been getting so many varients, have you considered what is making you so targeted/is infecting you?

Perhaps cut back on all the sketchy pr0n sites and e-gambling ^^

But in seriousness, if infection is this regular a thing; check your various potential vulnerabilities (see; browser, email client, firewall) and attempt to secure them, or at least identify the behaviors that are putting you at risk and change them. I can't recall the last time I got hit with anything of any noticible severity; and I don't go to any difficult steps to secure myself.

Format and reinstall...use a hardware firewall (router) and keep your antivirus up to date.
