Short version of the story:
I use WinXP SP2. System Restore is off at the mo unfortunately. Caught the win32trojan.tdss malware from a webpage. Browser acts up (but other browser is fine). Tried other malware removers such as Adaware. Only partial luck with Malware Bytes' Anti Malware prog. Tried Combofix, it worked great - no trace of win32trojan.tdss from what I can see. Shall I post the log?
More story details:
The partial luck with the Malware Bytes' prog sorted out the browser problems (usually random redirects from a link *within the initial HTML page*), but a scan from adaware still revealed the dreaded win32trojan.tdss malware. Hence my continued search for something that did the job better.
Apparently, I'm not supposed to use ComboFix (which I love btw) until I have posted here. I didn't heed the warning as I didn't see it until afterwards. But I seem to have come out lucky in the end - my system now seems fine. It picked up all the scary UAC************ hidden files in system32 (and some twain_32 files/folders), and got rid of them properly. I'll probably donate a bit.
Shall I post the log?
I wonder if those hidden UAC files would have shown under the BART PE bootup...
