Possible Rootkit Infection C:\Windows\Syswow64\InfDefaultInstall.exe and C:\Windows\Syswow64|runonce.exe
Posted 26 July 2012 - 07:44 PM
I'm in desperate need of help. Though I'm not very computer savvy, I have removed viruses from my computer in the past. As a result, I have the program rkill (which I obtained through Bleeping Computer on my computer), and I usually run it once a day to ensure my computer isn't infected. Since yesterday afternoon, rkill has detected two items. I've run Cure It from Doctor Web, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer from Kaspersky, as well as the ESET Online program to no avail. Malware Bytes did locate one type of adware and TDSS showed 5 suspicious items,all of which I attempted to either delete or place in quarantine. However, each time I restart my computer, rkill shows one of two of the following items: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\InfDefaultInstall.exe and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\runonce.exe
