Hey,

I am currently running AVG Anti-Virus (free one) and i discovered the other day that something isnt permitting me from running the scan.
I was instantly certain that it was a virus/trojan/malware. Im also having weird problems as well such as strange redirections from hyperlinks e.g. clicking on a link from google to youtube.com but arriving at the myspace.com login page. ??

I managed to fix AVG (which i thought) by re-installing it via safe mode. I then did another scan which was interrupted by stating that i had infected rootkits located at C:\Windows\win32k.sys:1
and
C:\Windows\win32k.sys:2

Ive read up on a similar issue at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/254289/infected-with-active-rootkit-win32ksys-1-and-2-no-signed/ however i seem to get lost as i follow it along.

Some assistance on this would be great,
Thanks very much.

Welcome to BC sect7.

The rootkit you are infected with requires advanced programs/removal methods. This type of help can only be found in our advanced malware forum.

Please follow this guide from step (6). Post a DDS log to the HJT/Malware forum and a Team member will be along to help you as soon as possible.

Thanks for the link but unfortunately im already having troubles from the first step :thumbsup:

I download the dds.scr file as instructed but then as i run it, no scan goes through and it just closes itself down again.

I have tried multiple times to run it as well as re-installing it but the dds file seems to do nothing and then closes.

I dont think i have any script blockers, unless i dont know of them...
