A few days ago my desktop (Windows XP SP3, 1.5GB RAM) began blue screening. I know this desktop inside and out and know what's going on pretty much at all times, but this time I'm at a dead end. I have ZoneAlarm Extreme Security installed. I did some research and found I have that TDL3 rootkit. ZoneAlarm doesn't detect anything in a full scan.
In addition, it will randomly blue screen. At anytime. It sometimes happens 30 seconds after booting it up, sometimes 15 minutes in. I have no way of controlling whether or not it happens, which makes scan running difficult. I'm not sure what else to do at this point. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
