My wife's computer has been infected with the System Check trojan.

I have tried to follow the self-help guide (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-check).

I was able to successfully run Rkill, but I could not get TDSSKiller to run in spite of trying several different file names.

So, I came here to ask for help. I tried to run dds several time, but each time, after several minutes, the computer crashes with a blue-screen kernel error.

Now I am stumped.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Nevermind. I did not give up and dug through the forum here. I found a similar situation that was solved by Gringo (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic439319.html). I used fixTDSS and was able to complete the removal instructions successfully!

Thanks for having such a great site and great people.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
