Ok, so here's the rundown.

Two days ago i received a notification from Norton360 saying "Threat requiring manual removal detected: System Infected: Tidserv Activity 2.". I followed the link provided and proceeded to run Backdorr.Tidserv Removal tool and Norton Power Eraser, to no avail. I called Norton, and they remotely accessed my computer in an attempt to eradicate the threat. All seem fine afterwards, but then the message appeared again. So again the following day I called Norton, they tried again, and failed. I have scoured forums and ran TDSSKiller, installed new versions of antivirus software, tried restoring my PC to a pervious backup, and no success whatsoever.

Please Help! I have no idea where to go from here.

Norton warning tidserve activity is a symptom of 64 bit zaccess rootki

Check for C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM64 (not the sysWOW64 folder)

if u have it then i can confirm that is a 64 bit zaccess rootkit.Pity that Norton support doesnot even notice this.
