I am running Windows 7. Few days ago, I started getting blue screen as soon as I started my computer. It was rootkit infection through MBR. TDDSKiller detected it.

After that, I cured using TDDSKiller, but my computer starts showing "OS not found" on startup. I got Win 7 installation disk and ran bootrec /fixmbr.

Since then rootkit keeps coming back in few hours and I have to everytime repair it using bootrec /fixmbr., otherwise blue screen starts coming up.

Is there a way I can permanently solve this. ?
