Hi, i've noticed that something was wrong, as flash movies started dropping framerate unnatural and processes become high with no reason, I had that before and usually combofix would always help. I've got eset nod32 antivirus to but it's just not doing it's job ;).I'm working on windows xp. Anyway this time combofix displayed that found rootkit zero access in tcp/ip stack, restarted the system and deleted one file, but malfunctioning didn't stop. I've run combofix few more times, it still displays rootkit zero access but doesn't delete anything. I know something is in here, as this laptop was working great just yesterday. Could anyone lend some advise please.

You have a serious malware infection. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a DDS log for further investigation.

Please read the "Preparation Guide".
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 7 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.
When you have done that, post the required logs to include your ComboFix log in that forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the Malware Response Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, please reply back here with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one.
