A few months ago I posted here due to a particularly nasty TCP/IP Rootkit infection.

I was able to identify and remove the virus using ComboFix.

However, I wanted to see if there was a good, deep scan tool that I can
run to ensure that I don't have some keystroke logger on my computer
that Avast and AVG are unable to find. (They weren't able to see/remove the earlier problem)

At least monthly I run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and SpyBot SD.

And at least weekly I run CrapCleaner to help keep my computer running quickly.

Any other tools that can be suggested to do a deep scan? Much thanks for all the help you give.

I'm a little strapped for cash now, but I intend to donate to UNITE. The work you all do is awesome and much needed.

Since you ran Combofix...

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. 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.

Thanks Broni, I posted my topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic474514.html

I am now definitely infected. AVG and Malware both find Trojans, but I don't think they
are affecting the root issue.

Much thanks for your help.
