I got infected today. All of a sudden, machine reboots and then I get BSOD.

I booted from a CD a version of XP and ran malwarebytes which identified the PC to be infected with the TDSS rootkit.

I removed all the files that malwarebytes says were infected but still get BSOD when I try to boot in safe, regular or any other mode.

Where to start?

So, nobody responded and I did more research. Ran tdsskiller.exe and told it to cure machine when it found the rootkit -- and it did.

Booted in normal mode, ran malwarebytes and AVG rootkit scanner and it all came up clean.

So I must be one realy lucky one.
