A MalwareBytes scan revealed 2 root kits. It will "remove" them on startup but they are there again on future scans. Should I go ahead and use the BC tutorial on "Using Blacklight to remove rootkits"?

Hello colvert,

No, do not run anti-rootkit tools on your own unless you have been trained.

You need guided help. Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== (skip steps 2 & 3). 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.

At the time you make your post at the Malware-help forum, be sure you also copy & paste the contents of that last MBAM scan log. !!!
