I have a laptop infected with Trojan.TDSS. I've ran MBAM on it, it has removed entries regarding Trojan.TDSS. I rebooted the laptop, re-ran a complete scan, and it found Trojan.TDSS entries again.
I rebooted the laptop once again, and I'm still getting the same ideas.

Brief information on the system:
MBAM: downloaded yesterday, updated before running.

How can I make sure Trojan.TDSS is completely removed?
I've searched the forum already and people have similar problems to mine. They had recommendations to run HJT/combofix/Rootkit Repealer but I figured I'd hold off on that until I got proper advice.

Let me add some more details:
- I've had a (brief) look through the hidden devices in the Device Manager -- I saw nothing with the substring TDSS within it.
- The first two MBAM "Show Results" found files in c:\windows\system32 -- they had a random string of letters as the name and dll as the extension.

- The 3rd and latest scan with MBAM showed results in C:\SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION\_restore (something to that effect -- I don't have the exact string right now), and I suspected this was an infected System Restore point. I've disabled System Restore, and that has deleted all the restore points. I'm running a full scan with MBAM right now.
