As soon as I start my PC it registers 100% cpu usage. I noticed a multiple occurance of mtmc tasks.
I have deleted them and found mtmc.exe hiding user winnt/system32 which I deleted also. However, when I restart my PC it reappears gain !
Quick serach in the Internet tells me that it is a rootkit malware and is quite nasty.
Can I do something to remove it permanently ?
I have done a deep scan of my PC with AVG Antispyware and have deleted some Adware etc but it didn't find this rootkit guy.

Any advice ?

there are very instances of that rootkit in a google search and just seeing how it's being handled here I wouldn't waste any time and would go directly to the HJT preperation


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
