Hi, I have a system that is infected with (most likely) a rootkit. It will not allow any scanners or most antimalware programs to run. So far I have successfully run DDS and gotten a log, gmer but it did not specifically identify any threats, rkill (iexplore version) which finds and kills 2-3 process' but they get recreated instantly and process names change each time. Renaming other scanner's exe's does not work.

What will not run or gets killed shortly after starting: combofix, mbam, superantispyware, hitman pro, catchme, mbr.

Safe mode produces the same results, no obvious bad files created recently, pulling the hard drive and scanning on another pc with mbam, eset and most of the others above does not find any infected files.

Can you provide any further insight? Much appreciation in advance.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
