Hello everyone,

Does anyone have any thoughts with regards to a computer being infected with TDSS rootkit? I have billy helping me out and doing a great job (thank you, thank you, thank you), however, after it is cleaned out, is the computer really trustworthy?

I have heard conflicting stories about this infection....I have a firewall running (now...but before I only used MS firewall, I thought it was enough), I also use a D-Link router (which I understand is a hard firewall)...however, if I use this machine for banking and important stuff, do you think I should be able to trust this machine again?

Any thoughts would be great

Please follow all Billy 3's instructions.

Thereafter, I would change all logins and passwords. Call such to start the process? Or write directly?
