Good Afternoon,

My PC is recently infected with a virus that is causing issues such as redirecting Google searches and displaying false security alerts. I have run ComboFix on the PC and it gives the message Rootkit activity detected, Combofix will need to reboot your PC. CF completes it's scan and creates a log, but the issue is not resolved. I ran GMER and recieved the additional detail: TDL4@MBR code has been found. However I do not have the option in GMER to disable or delete the service. Does anyone have insight on how to rid my PC of this Rootkit? Thanks for your help.

Hello having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you have.

Let me know if that went well.
