I'm new to this site. My system was really messed up. Had a bad redirect problem. I got Malwarebytes and Spyware Doctor. I could not connect to Windows update. I am using XP. Microsoft support helped me out. Directed me to http://support.kaspersky.com/downloads/utils/tdsskiller.zip. TDSSKiller.exe scan found my system was infected by a rootkit.

Windows now updates. No more redirects!!!! :flowers: :thumbsup:

My concern now is that Malwarebytes always finds one infected file:

Files Infected:
C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Application Data\syssvc.exe (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Delete on reboot.

I have looked for the file before and after it supposedly deletes it. I have my system set to view hidden files. I searched the my system, the file does not exist.

Is this a false positive?
