I'm an old computer tech and have had some recent trouble trying to remove 2 different root kits that won't go away.
I usually use AVG with the Combination of a few other tools such as Malwarebytes to help detect and remove viruses on machines.
In this case I installed Avira after removing AVG with the Revo Uninstaller in advanced mode, with no satisfactory results.
I then uninstalled Avira with Revo again and replaced it with Avast and set it to super high detection modes in all areas.
I disabled Avast and Adaware so I could check it out with Combofix witch I tried many fresh versions with all the same results.
I finally went to the registry and tried to remove every "catchme" file with the same results.
I need help with these 2 root kits (cathme.log and tcpip.reg). Any recommendations anyone?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
