Recently I've acquired a virus on my netbook, and cannot seem to get rid of it.
I used Malwarebytes in Safe Mode( It was the only way to start it,in normal mode, malwarebytes just wouldn't load up, unless i renamed the mbam.exe file.
I also used spybot, superantispyware etc.
I found different viruses ranging from rootkit.tdss, trojan.agent, etc.
This virus just will not go away!
I also cannot use windows update.
The symptoms included redirecting to results5.google.com
Also i cannot run any well known anti malware/spyware programs. (E.g malwarebytes) unless i renamed their .exe file.
After doing a system restore, everything seemed normal, and i quickly installed malwarebytes 1.46 and bought the full version.
Now a few days after, i noticed it continually says that it blocked (ip address) in the protection module.
After googlin it seems i still have the rootkit!
And every once a while the malwarebytes module pops up and i have to quarantine something in the appdata folder.
