I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with removing this nasty piece of malware that could be the cause of my PC randomly giving me blue screen of death messages which say "bad_pool_caller".
My NOD32 v4 just gave me a warning saying that a threat was found in the object "MBR sector of the 1. physical disk" which was "Win32/Mebroot.BZ" trojan. Unfortunately it wasn't able to remove the infection.
I've already got Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed, so I updated it and ran a full scan. It couldn't detect any malicious items to remove.
I then googled "how to repair" the MBR, so I used the recovery console to fix the mbr and although Windows said it was successful, when I checked it with gmer's MBR rootkit detector, it said there was still "malicious code" in one sector and a "PE file" found in another sector.
I leave my poorly PC in this forum's capable hands. Thanks in advance for any help.
Edit - I'm running Windows XP SP3.
