Hello,

 

This is a problem with TDSSKiller itself and it should be fixed in the next build.

Hi,

 

I don't think that a format is needed especially if the system is malware free. However keep in mind that powerful tools like TDSSKiller, Combofix, etc should be used only under guidance of a qualified expert or you could render your pc unbootable.

Georgi
