Hello Everyone :)
I have cleaned out my computer with ccleaner etc...  It comes up clean now.\
BUT I still have two text documents showing a log of the "dreaded" TDSSKiller 2.8.16 + 2.8.18 One dated 7,22,13 the other 8,5,13.
After running ALL security I still have these two on my cdrive.  I dont want them but I am afraid if I just hit the delete it will still have hidden logs or files.
What are the best steps to take.
Thank you for a great support site !

TDSSKiller.exe is a standalone tool for removing a specific rootkit.

I don't suggest anyone runs this tool on their own, but if you have you do not need to uninstall it.

Deleting the tool from it's saved location will remove it.


Thank You -

Please download OTC by OldTimer and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on the OTC icon on your desktop.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
    If you receive a UAC prompt asking if you would like to continue running the program, you should press the Continue button.
  • Click on the green CleanUp! button.
  • Click Yes when prompted to Begin cleanup process.
  • When it has finished, OTC will ask you to restart the computer.
-- Doing this will remove many specialized tools downloaded and used for malware removal. If OTC does not delete itself, then delete the file manually when done.
-- Any leftover logs, files, folders or tools remaining on your Desktop which were not removed can be deleted manually (right-click on it and choose delete) as noted by noknojon
