I've been able to pull the drive from one computer and hook it up to another and run tdsskiller.exe.....And It finds rootkit.boot.pihar.c I hook the old drive back up, and I cannot open any programs. I've tried .exe fix's in case it was an association, but no luck. And I can't run ANY tools.

Hi gumbothehobo,


:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

My name is Jason and I'll be helping you with your computer problems. You can call me by my screename jntkwx or Jason is fine.

Some things to remember while we are working together.

  • Do not run any other tool untill instructed to do so!
  • Please do not attach logs or put logs in code boxes (unless explicitly asked to)
  • Tell me about any problems that have occurred during the fix.
  • Tell me of any other symptoms you may be having as these can also help.
  • Do not run anything while running a fix.
  • If you don't understand a step, please ask for clarification before continuing with any future steps.

Click on the Watch Topic button and select Immediate Notification and click on proceed, this will help you to get notified faster when I have replied and make the cleaning process faster.

 

A couple questions:
  • Is this computer 32-bit or 64-bit?
  • When you try to open programs, do you get any error messages? If so, what are they?

Regards,
Jason
