We have recently seen a new root kit that is creating an extra line of ads on every site visited. It appears to be a root kit because nothing is reported to windows (process explorer is clean).   We work with infected computers daily so we are fairly versed in field.  The most current version of TDSSKILLER doesn't seem to find it.  The only solution we found that is working is going back to a previous system restore point.  I work for remotefixitnow.com and we have just started seeing this one surface in the last few days.  Has any one else seen this variant yet?  We haven't captured any logs or screen shots yet, just tossing this out there.
Thanks, Rryan
