I'm not sure what this particular malware is called, but I get the pop ups warning me that my hard drive has failed and it hides all my files.
I am running in safe mode now.
I've tried to fix this myself by following some of the suggestions on the forums, but now I'm stuck. I've run RKILL and unhide. I've also scanned with malwarebytes anti malware (found some entries, but when I boot normally, the nasty program is still there.) I've tried to run TDSSKILLER.EXE - but I get no response. The program seems to start, but it goes away without opening any dialog boxes or gui's. I have tried renaming it. No luck.
I found the .exe's for file removal and deleted them just now. I also emptied the recycle bin. I ran RKILL again after they were deleted. I still can't get TDSSKILLER to run so I'm pretty sure I'm not out of the woods.
I've run gmer, DDS, and defogger. - But I don't want to clog the forum up with unasked for logs.
I should also report that I'm using 64 bit Windows 7 and the malware probably came to me through Mozilla somehow.
