I was instructed to post a new topic here from this topic I had opened up.My link
I am not 100% positive, but I believe that my computer may be rootkitted or something else. My browsers all redirect to different websites when I do yahoo searches, and IE will open random windows from time to time such as Twitter, Myspace, and other advertisement sites.
When I open my Task Manager, my explorer.exe Mem Usage is at 207K+ after start up. In addition, I have PC Tools Spyware Doctor, when I run a full scan, it comes up saying it found Rootkit.TDSS.V3, but can never remove it, it says it did, but then when the next scan is run it comes right back up again.
I followed the Prep guide as instructed, when I attempt to run DDS the program only runs to about 3/4 and then stalls, and never creates a text log for me.
With GMER it gives me the error "cannot create a stable subkey under a volatile parent key" and then opens, it only gives me 4 box options Services, Registry, File, and ADS. When I run GMER it finds nothing.
