I managed to run another scan using malwarebytes - it turns out my laptop has been infected with 'Rootkit.TDSS.Gen'

Hi there...

My laptop has been infected with trojans and...stuff. To be honest, I know nothing about viruses or trojans or malware... All I know is that it's pretty scary stuff.

I installed gmer, but the first time I tried to open it, the dreaded blue screen appeared. I restarted my computer, and managed to get gmer to open it. When I clicked scan, however, the blue screen appeared again. When I started windows again, a window appeared with some information about why windows had shut down unexpectedly:

' Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Users\geno\AppData\Local\Temp\WER13ED.tmp.version.txt '

Anyway. Here are some details of the problems I've been experiencing:

  • Not always, but quite often, if I click on a link in a google search, I will be redirected to some random site.
  • My computer has crashed three times, causing the blue screen to come up.
  • Every time I start windows, a little pop up speech bubble appears, telling me certain start menu items have been blocked.

I ran a Malwarebytes scan, and this is the log:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50

Database version: 5214

Windows 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer 7.0.6002.18005

c:\Users\geno\AppData\Roaming\Otypix\umap.exe (Trojan.ZbotR.Gen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

It says the infected files were deleted. But I ran another scan not long ago...and 3 infected files were found. However, this was when I was trying to get gmer to work, so the blue screen appeared before the scan finished.

Can anyone help? I have no idea how to get rid of these problems D:
