i had this issue
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic445367.html/page__p__2623555#entry2623555
i thought reformatting the drive.. (repartitioned too) would completely rid me of any issues, but while running windows update yesterday, my malwarebytes and norton turned off.
i immediately turned them back on, but now i am concerned about something still being on the system and not being found.

windows 7
eset online scanner
malware bytes
norton 360

TDSSKiller

all run clean .. but I worry about something being hooked in somewhere ..
i need to make sure my passwords and banking info is not compromised, again.

thank you for any guidance

Hello again Wendy. Let's get a deeper look this time. 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.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

thanks!
will do
i am a paranoid mess :)

I'm even more concerned with the data on my external drive .. a WD Passport
it was connected to the infected machine as a primary storage location during the original hack..
I have set windows to show hidden files and ran every scanner on it i know how to run.. and nothing finds anything, but as much as i really want to be able to trust those files (because I need them) I don't know if i can trust them.
I can't see a RECYCLE BIN on that drive when I explore it, but it is something that is scanned extensively when i use eset online scanner etc on it.

MRL Topic... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic447069.html/page__p__2638627#entry2638627

That looks great Wendy.. We will get this squared away soon.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
