I have Win XP Media Edition....Today my computer started shutting down by itself. So, I remebered a friend advising me the MSSE was not really up to date on its protections. Not sure...so downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a full scan.

I found SpamTool.Agent, Trojan.Agent, and 2 Rootkit.Agent infections.

My research lead me to this site to get rkille.exe, rkill.com, etc.

How do I find this and then the tdss killer?

Other sites mention this and want you to sign on with them. But, I heard this was a free download from bleeping computer? Where can I find it?
