After installing sms iphone importer software bonded-up with incredibar, load of viruses and malware. Combofix reporting infection with rootkit.zeroaccess in tcp/ip stack, then removing rootkit, then detected rootkit activity and then reboot and new scan that detects nothing.
However, when combofix scan is run again the loop continues.
I have try safe mode with the same result.
Also try:GMER, fsbl,otl, bootkit remover, ez_sirefix and service repair, antyzeroaccess, aswmbr, eset live and installed, esetsirefefevcleanerm, malwarebytes, fixzeroaccess, tdsskiller and avenger in both regular and safe mode of windows XP 32-bit.
I have also enable logging and by had verify each started driver to be real and legit.
It appears that what ever is activating rootkit it is doing after drivers are loaded. I have also verify that all the registry items in run are legit as well.
After almost a week am am ready to give up.

ZeroAcces rootkit requires elevated help.

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.
