I'm fairly sure I have the HDD malware - getting errors - windows can't find hard disk space, damaged hard drive clusters - private data at risk etc. Have seen a mention on here with the same errors.

I've copied rkill to a usb stick and can run it on my laptop - but get access denied error - but it does seem to run. The only process it says it kills is a symantec blah blah.

When I try and install malware from the stick - it goes all the way through the install process till the end - then again, I get access denied error and it rolls back.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
