I am running AVG Anti-Virus, Comodo Firewall, Spy Sweeper and using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Windows XP operating system
A few days ago, Spy Sweeper found Rootkit.Agent, which I thought I had removed with Malwarebytes'.
Today, I was reading a legit game website for updates to the current patch for World of Warcraft. I clicked on a link to the "supposed" patch update info, and went immediately to blue screen. Restarted my machine, ran Malwarebytes' and found Rootkit.Agent again, removed and restarted machine. I thought all was well, logged into Warcraft, left the computer for 3 minutes, came back to blue screen again. Restarted machine, went to look up Rootkit.Agent again, and another blue screen. All three blue screen within 30 minutes, this has never happened to me, except very recently, with all this malware trouble I have been having.
I was doing nothing unusual with my machine, no intensive graphics, etc.
I do not turn off my firewall settings when I game, and I do not go to any but several websites that I have know to be safe.
Here is the file that was supposedly deleted ...
Registry Keys Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\asc3550p (Rootkit.Agent) ->
Quarantined and deleted successfully.
I highly doubt that is has been removed, or else why would I be getting these frequent blue screens?
Is there a better suite of internet protection software apps than what I am currently running? I am not a careless web surfer, and I am so tired of the continual barrage of attacks to my computer.
Thanks in advance.
