I am running XP home with SP3
aswMBR.exe detects TDL4@MBR. I press "Fix" and reboot immediately, but its still present when run again. Same thing when run in safe mode, it keeps coming back.
TDSSkiller gets stuck at 80% and windows reports "TDSSkiller.exe has encountered a problem". Doesn't work when renamed to 123.com or 123.exe or whatever else.
Spybot keeps showing gift.load, which keeps appearing as a different registry every time spybot detects it.
Hitman Pro is not recognizing the TDL4. I even tried Hitman Pro new build released today just for this specific variant. See here: http://hitmanpro.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/tdl4-bootkit-reinstates-64-bit-infection-capability/
When I try to boot with XP cd to wipe everything clean and reformat as a last resort, blue screen error says
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to you computer.
If this Is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this is your first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configurations, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer."
According to Microsoft, this may be due to the HaxDoor virus.
Please help. Let me know which logs to post. Thank you!
