Posted 14 June 2012 - 01:53 AM

I just reloaded a computer, and started downloading software from ninite.com, AV, Reader, Open Office, etc... Next I started downloading a driver for a proprietary piece of hardware, and before it finished downloading I started hearing these weird commercials and sound bites from transformers and a few other movies. Once I installed the driver the computer blue screened, and it did this numerous times (5-10 seconds after logging in). I finally decided to do a second Dell factory image restore.

The computer was freshly restored and this time, before I even finished selecting all the apps I wanted from ninite.com I started hearing the same crap I did earlier. I have since installed and run mbam and AVG, but neither of them are reporting any infections.

This system is running windows 7 Pro x32

Gmer did report the following, both at start up, and at the finish, TDL4@MBR code has been found - rootkit!. I'll do some research into that while I await a response. Hopefully somebody's run into this one before.

Here are my dds and gmer logs:

Good evening. :)

Download TDSSKiller.zip from Kaspersky from here and save it to your Desktop.

  • You will then need to extract the file(s) from the zipped folder.
  • To do this: Right-click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
    In the Extraction Wizard window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
    In the final window, click on Finish

  • Please close all open programs as this may result in a reboot being necessary.
  • Double click TDSSKiller.exe to begin.
  • Click Change parameters and check the two boxes under Additional Options.
  • Click Start scan and allow the tool to do just that.
  • One the scan has completed, if the tool has identified anything allow it to carry out it's default action(s) - you'll need to click Continue where appropriate.
  • Finally, if it prompts you to reboot your machine, please click Reboot Now and ensure that your machine does so.
  • The log that the tool creates will be located at the root of you hard drive as C:\TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt. - i'd like a copy of the contents in your next reply.
    Please check that you get the one with the right date and time. :)

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Given that there has been no response for at least five days, and I have no way of knowing when there will be one, this thread is now closed.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
