I have found out that I am infected with this bootkit: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/328605/system-volume-information-trojans-servicesexe-and-smssexe-cannot-remove/ (the one everyone seems to have at the moment!)

I was trying to run the solution to removing the bootkit using the eSage Bootkit Remover on my only drive at \\.\PhysicalDrive0. However, when I run the application it tells me "ERROR: No standard boot code can be found for your OS." It then goes on to list suitable Operating Systems to run, amongst which Windows Vista is listed. It is Windows Vista that I am running on my system, so I am confused as to why I am having this problem? Has anyone experienced similar problems?

Hello Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip GMER it will not see it. Instead post the complete Bootkit log.

Let me know if that went well.
