A client machine (Dell Inspirion) running Windows XP was infected. Ran rkill.exe, didn't find anything. Ran tdsskill.exe, didn't find anything. Ran Malwarebytes, and Computer Associates Antivirus, found nothing. I downloaded, installed and ran Hitman Pro 3.5, which identified mbr.exe as a root kit. I know there is an mbr.exe killer out there but I don't know where, I thought it was on this site. Any assistance? Computer Associates Antivirus software's "Real Time" scanner keeps popping up a virus alert, but does not provide the full path. Trying to knock out this mbr.exe so we can proceed with the virus removal.
