I have been just recently infected with the zero access trojan that was disguised as an adobe flash update. I didn't think too much of it at first, so I just absent-mindedly installed it. Once it started executing the fake update, Mcafee's real-time scan caught some parts of the trojan and removed it temporarily.
From Mcafee's scan log, the files that were removed are as followed:
However, the same files keep reappearing on my computer even after Mcafee's real-time scan has been removing them. Not only that, but when I try to turn on my windows firewall I am met with an error message that says "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x80070424." So I'm assumed that there must be some kind of rootkit that's still in my computer. So after googling the Trojan, I downloaded both the Symantec and Mcafee ZeroAccess rootkit removal tools. However, both of them found nothing, and I'm still unable to turn on my firewall. Also to be safe, I tried disabling my internet connection on the computer but that was also met with an error. As a result, I ended up unplugging the ethernet cable from my computer in order to disable the connection.
My machine is running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit. I just recently joined so I'm not sure what other info is necessary, so let me know if you need more details. Thanks for your time.
