My computer is infected with a TDSS rootkit (the H8SRT* variant). I was told this by a Spybot detection helper. She instructed me to run spybot with a special .sbi file that she provided The program found the H8SRT stuff, but every time I rebooted and ran spybot again, it would appear to find the same files. At this point she instructed me to run Combofix. I started running it last night and it too scanned through (scan took 10-15min) and found six H8SRT files (mostly .dll's) - then it rebooted and scanned again (scan took +3hours), rebooted on its own overnight, and now its scanning again (going on 3+ hours). Right now the message I am seeing says "please be patient, this could take up to 10 minutes, or double that for very infected machines".
My question is - should I just let it keep going? Not sure what to do. I have not gotten any response from the Spybot team since yesterday afternoon (I guess they take the weekend off).
BTW - I'm running Windows XP.
