I found multiple topics relating toa zeroaccess rootkit virus, downloaded the tools and found them extremely helpful. Sadly I couldn't run tdsskiller any way I named it or downloaded it. Last week in walmart my wife suggested avast system suite which said it deleted the zeroaccess rootkit and scanning with rkill comes clean of infection, malware bytes shows clean, sas showed 79 adware tracking cookies which I delete every time. Before hand I had firewall issues, thanks to Mcafee preinstalled and controlling it...constantly, even after my subscription ended, which probably started all this. One day I noticed windows couldn't finish an essential update, thought nothing of it and just kept on. Well upon trying to install avg via a c-net.com download link the virus activated to protect itself with browser freeze ups and such. Rkill showed the zeroaccess and firewall, not to mention mcafee but I knew mcafee wasn't doin a damn thing. Well since the removal in the Start menu, Windows 7, Internet Explorer, windows media and windows explorer have a (4) next to them and at varying times internet exp will goto a diff site, like a redirect virus. Eset, before using avast system suite, showed the google redirect virus HTML/Iframe.B.Gen virus deleted - quarantined......but I still get redirects here and there. Nothing in any scans show, windows updated after Avast was installed, nod32 wouldn't install thanks to mcafee hanging around, microsoft security essentials installed and there's nothing on any scans. But I still get redirected here and there. I used Revo uninstaller to delete/uninstall any other antivirus and apps I thought to be malicious, like BHOs and the facebook messenger, but revo doesn't show any mcafee or fb messenger, and I tried uninstalled via the standard menu of windows, but the files were hanging around. I don't know if they were deleted or if I'm free of infection. I'm also using my android to free my pc up to do specified tasks when asked to, thanks in advance for any help my friends!
