Kaspersky 2010 found the following issue when scanning my computer: rootkit.win32.tdss.d It said this was found in the atapi.sys driver. I allowed it to scan the file but it was unable to clean or disinfect anything. I also downloaded and ran the TDSS Killer but it was unable to remove the infection even after following the directions to allow it to reboot the computer. Is there any way I can remove this virus from the driver? I am not completely comfortable in knowing how to reinstall that particular driver and from what I've read elsewhere that's not 100% beating the issue. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

At this point, I think this one is best left to the experts, so I'm going to refer you to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum.

Please read the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help in cleaning your computer. Once complete, post a link back to this forum so the HJT team knows what we have tried.

Please be patient as the HJT team is quite busy sometimes and it may take a day or even a few for someone to pickup your log but someone will get back to you.
