A few months back my PC was infected by Security Suite, I followed the instructions for Its removal on BC. At first it was gone, then my browser started redirecting me to pages I didn't ask for or even open. So I kept on using MalwareBytes and rkill to remove it. It was during one of these removals that I noticed rkill wasn't running the way it should, instead of taking time like the instructions said it was, it was over quickly and a message poped up saying:
"This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.
Ran as User on 13/08/2010 at 17:39:08.
Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\rkill.com
Rkill completed on 13/08/2010 at 17:39:11. "
I'm not sure if that is normal or not. But this week Security Suite came back again.
This week my PC started having problems with loading. As soon as it comes on it freezes and then starts saying IE8, Java and other programmes have failed and need to close. It also displays "You are Low on Virtual Memory" message, but I'm not as over 90% of the disk is free space. Because of these problems the PC stays frozen. I pressed "reset" in Internet Options to try and fix the problem, that didn't work. When I boot in safe mode though, IE8 and other programmes work fine. Also, I used an alternative browser (Firefox) and it crashed too.
So I decided to run CCleaner in safe mode with Networking, Used Rkill, Malware Bytes again and TDSSKiller to remove any possible TDSS infection. After restarting and coming back in to Normal mode the PC loaded fine and nothing failed. However, when I opend IE8 to browse the page froze. (the PC didn't) So I opend my e-mail account and opened a new Tab and I could browse from there with no freezing or redirecting.
However, I had to restart my PC again after Windows updates, when the PC came back on it went back to freezing again and displaying the same "Low on virtual Memory" and "IE8 Failed" messages once more. I'm not sure if this is connected to the Security Suite or is a entirely different problem.
I would be greatful for any help. Thank you in advance.
