So Rogers just told my family that we have Torpig on one of our computers (and they shut off the internet, but I've convinced them to turn it back on since the prime suspect will remain offline). I have no idea whether we do or not (I have not seen any signs especially, but I haven't looked at our network usage patterns), but if so it is possible that it's my computer, so I was gonna post some logs on here to find out whether anyone could spot it or recommend a course of action.
Problem: running Gmer as per the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
preparation guide produces the following error:
C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified.
Thereafter most of the options on the side-bar are grayed out (except for services, registry, ADS and files) and obviously a scan with this problem cannot be run (because the options aren't available).
I'm on Win7 Ultimate 64 bit. Please let me know what is going on, and in particular whether this is a sign that there is a bigger problem present?
Please let me know what other information I can provide here.
