Hi, my names Jon and I'm trying to fix my grandmothers computer. She got infected with the Windows Anitvirus Pro virus and I was able to remove it with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or so I thought. It went through and removed all its files and everything, but now NOD32 pops up saying thers a virus in the boot sector called win32/rootkit.agent.odg trojan.

It's a Windows XP machine. When you open IE8 is has a page saying you need to change your security settings and IE8 has to rechange the default search back to windows Live. Pages open normally when you type in a url but whenever you click a link, especially a search engine result, it opens up an ad page.

I haven't had a chance to run hijackthis yet, but I ran root repeal. I didn't want to delete anything before knowing what exactly to remove. I also have GMER but didn't really get any search results, maybe I ran it wrong.

I installed a clean copy of XP on an empty 10gb HD and ran everything from there making sure to scan the HD for my grandmothers computer. Unless it's already the new HD, which so far doesn't seem like it is, everything in question is from D:\

Here's the Root Repeal log:

I tried running hijack this, but soon found out it only scans the boot drive, not the secondary drive. Now when I try to boot into my grandma's computer it won't boot. When trying to boot normally it flashes the BSOD and then restarts and when I try Safe Mode it makes it part way and then restarts. Not sure if it because I'm using a different tower or what but I can't boot now to run hijack this, so I'm stuck with scanning from a different drive. I can still access all her files, so if need be I can remove any and all virus files and clean up her drive, copy her stuff off and reinstall windows. But I'd rather not. I'm gonna leave the HD alone for now until someone comes to help. I'll be patient, I just hope my grandmother is.

If you are infected with a rootkit, then we need to move you to the HJT Malware forum.
