Yesterday I had several BOD during normal use of my Windows 7 64 bit dell desktop. previous to this windows had been repeatedly asking for permission to run some very strange looking exes that I hadn't ran. I stoppped the process using task manager and then ran malware bytes to see if anything untoward was happening, about 2 minutes in BAM BOD relating to drivers.

I immediately logged back in on safe mode and tried running malware bytes again, found 19 infections (I have log files if needed) including 2 trojans and the rest part of a rootkit - Tdss

quickly got out my notebook (linux!) and started googling and eventually found the Kasperky TDSS rootkit killer which i ran and it found the rootkit at driver level. I rebooted into safemode ran malware bites again and it found 16 files in sys32 which i removed.

then rebooted back in normal windows and ran full scans with Mbam, MSE and sophos webkit finder none of which found anything...

My Questions are these; Is there anyway of knowing how long I have been infected for? I am aware that rootkits can remain undetected for sometime, I have already reset most of my passwords and instructed my wife to do the same, should we take further precautions?

next question is off course am I still infected? i am also very aware that rootkits can hide themselves from the most advanced of tools, so what can I do to ensure that the pc is not infected?

many thanks in advance, I am a desktop engineer and have several years experience with support, never had to deal with a rootkit of this variant on my own pc before however oh and I am a total n00b when it comes to posting on support forums, but happy to do whatever it takes for you guys to help me

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.
If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about the Windows version you are using: What we in particular need to know is version, edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system. [/b]
If you are unsure about any of these caracteristics, just let us know and we'll help you figuring it out. Please also tell us if you have your Windows CD/DVD handy.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • In the custom scan box paste the following:
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch Topic.I suggest you click it and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti
