Hey everyone. I have a question concerning a root kit issue I'm having. A few days ago, I was doing a search on Google and when I clicked on the link, it redirected me. I tried a million different links, but the same thing happened. I ran a FULL scan using both AVG and MalwareBytes... They detected and removed a few trojans I had. I tried doing the Google search again, and the same thing happened. I did some research and I saw an article saying to use the Kaspersky TDSSKiller. I tried that, and nothing happened.
After some more research, I came across Combofix. I installed it and ran it as per the instructions. It said that a rootkit was detected and a reboot is required, so I clicked 'OK'. After the computer rebooted, Combofix opened up, started scanning and completing stages, It completed the first 3 stages, but once after that, I was sent to the infamous BSOD doing the physical memory dump.
