I have an Acer Win XP Pro that had several rogue antivirus infections that I removed in May. I have a gut feeling I still have something I couldn't get to. I say that because I have no symptoms except for an occasional browser closing unexpectedly. I also found some remnants of infection left behind within the registry but the files they point to no longer exist.

I have never been able to get a GMER log. After dozens of trys I can get as far as files being searched and the computer restarts.

On my own today I found RKUnhookerLE and downloaded it but when I checked the MD5 hash on the file it did not match. So I did a search on BC and found that others were downloading RKUnhookerLE from the same location and it was giving them a report. I downloaded and ran it but it loads in the background and no dialog appears. It runs using 50% CPU until I restart the machine.

MBAM and SAS both report nothing.

I'm running AVG and Threatfire.

On restart AVG does not have a tray icon after running RKUnhookerLE.

When I started RKUnhookerLE the last time I forgot to Suspend Threatfire and it warned me about RKUnhookerLE running as a service.

Am I just being paranoid, or do I still have something to worry about?

Before performing a Anti rootkit scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.

Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
