My brother opened up something on one of our computers yesterday (keygen or something, I know! :flowers: ), it's on xp, with avast/zonealarm running, avast picked up trojan-gen and it was deleted/put in the chest (can't remember which exactly), however the internet after this was not working and I noticed it was redirecting through copy-book.com, a spyware s&d search found more trojans/malware and they were deleted, then the pc was shutdown. On booting the pc every time after this, a bsod with the code 0x0000008E (0x0000005 random random 0x000000) occurs. I booted into safe mode and ran a further avast scan, a malwarebytes scan and another s&d scan, some more items were found and removed. Off the top of my head, s&d found agent.sd and avast found dnschanger and more. On boot a number of internet-related services and dependent services are not working and causing errors in the error-viewer and it was not possible to use the internet in safe mode with networking.

I'm at a bit of a loss as to what I should do next? Rootkit scans? Alternative malware programs? Maybe the bsod is unrelated? big maybe that one :thumbsup:

EDIT: ironically I appear to have a very similar problem to the poster below!

Ok I think I may have found my problem, ran gmer to check for rootkits and found what seems to be a rootkit which comes with dnschanger trojan, If I post up my gmer log will someone be able to advise whether I should remove what I have found?
