Clicked a LinkedIn link not caught by google as Spam for Phishing. Reading up on this it said it may install the Zeus rootkit.

It opened media player + also crashed Firefox.

Ran a few anti-malwarebytes and turned up nothing. Ran a few other programs I had from viruses in the past...nothing.

Was feeling safe until I ran GMER and it said Possible Rootkit detected.

Please let me know what I can do, and how we can be sure there are not any rootkits stealing my info!

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
