on 11/27/12 and every subsequent scan AVG scan found Trojan horse Hider.OMK embedded in the netbt.sys file of my system32/drivers files. I am running Vista with most updates installed. Windows Firewall is on right now, but everything I have read regards this as a tough virus to remove without potential damage. I considered physical removal of the files, but am having multiple problems even accessing the files associated with the infection. Where to start.

I ran tdsskiller through a couple times, then emptied my java cache and ran it a coupe more times. Trojan that was located in windows/sys32/drivers/netbt.sys is no longer appearing on AVG scans or tdsskiller scan. The trojan was detected and white listed by AVG from the onset so perhaps that is why I had a relatively easy time removing it (comparatively). Thank you, and mods can remove thread this if they want.
