Long story as short as I can make it. Have a notebook harddrive Norton flagged with boot.tidserv when I hooked the drive up to another pc. Repair failed.
I scanned the drive with malware bytes, emsisoft, MSE and picked up a few things but not tidserv.
Today I downloaded all the versions of Rkill downloaded onto a disc from another machine today and applied them and they found nothing. I downloaded super anti spyware today on a 64 bit machine and made a disc but it would not install on the XP machine because it was for a 64 bit..drats ..I wasn't given any options when I downloaded it. Malwarebytes found nothing 2 weeks ago and I couldn't get it to run off the disc that I made today which I loaded into the infected machine.
IE 8 in the infected machine still resets my cookies to accept all when I start IE8 which has been reloaded a couple of times in the last 2 weeks, and I suspect now that it is transmitting unauthorized data if I should go online again and am afraid to do so. Last time online it was redirecting me all the time and I could not connect to windows update.
Thanks for any advice and am ready to be taken to the woodshed for being a novice at this site and asking questions that have been hashed over 1000 times.
