I have been also using Hitman which had gotten a few viruses that the others hadn't gotten, before this. I have it set up to run when Windows starts up. For some reason when it would try to scan it would say that Hitman couldn't find the a internet connection even though the modem was on and operating normally. Today after the unprompted Avira scan it was able to run and it came up saying I had TR/RootkitGen3. I did a search and I read that TR was in the system volume/restore cannot be read.
From what I have read when people have the rootkit gen 3 they haven't been able to update windows successfully. I have not had that problem. Where do I go from here? Thanks
