This is my first post in this forum. Let me introduce myself. I am Varun Tyagi and live in New Delhi, India.

Yesterday, I was downloading something, suddenly lots of pop ups started coming on my lappie screen. That was something weird , b'coz norton was trying to send some kind of messages (approx. 50 odd msgs). And after that Auto protect result came to the fore and displayed that my laptop is infected by Hacktool.Rootkit virus. I googled it out and found out lots of ways to heave a sigh of relief but was unsuccessful. I tried MBAM, Unhackme, Spygot-Search and destroy, SDFix and various other methods to get rid of them. However, I was able to delete lots of infections but the two sys file (ipsecndis.sys and ntndis,sys).
I tried every possible way to delete these files but whenever i connect to the internet, these two files get life and they again come to infuriate me. :thumbsup:

I came to know through the extensive research that the hacktool virus has created a backdoor kinda stuff in my lappie.
I request you to help me out in this issue as I am really frustrated and feeling helpless.

Thanks a lot in anticipation.

P.S. I feel like writing a letter to my friend :flowers:

remove ipsecndis.sys + ntndis.sys:

the infected file: ndis.sys
the original file size (sp3) 182 656, the infected file ~210k

recovery consol (xp-cd, boot, r)
copy c:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\ndis.sys c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ndis.sys
exit, reboot

if you dont't have servicepackfiles dir, you have to copy a known good ndis.sys from
another pc
