I am trying to clean the tons of malware off of a friend's computer.  Kaspersky found mem.rootkit.win64.tdss and rootkit.boot.pihar.c along with a lot of other stuff.  It "fixed" them and rebooted.  Of course, the computer will not boot now - it gets to the windows loading screen then reboots.  I downloaded a bootable AVG and ran it twice - it froze at about 79% each time but I let it clean the hundred files it found.  I saw somewhere that these viruses create a small partition that boots first.  Someone used GParted to reset the larger partition to active. However, once I got into the software I could not figure out how to do this.  Then  I found this forum where someone had the Pihar.c and you guys helped them.  I followed those instructions and downloaded and ran the Farbar software and have attached those logs.  Can someone please help?

Hello! Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums! :welcome:
My name is Georgi and and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

Before we begin, please note the following:

  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.
  • Stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • Please do not run any tools until requested ! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
  • Please perform all steps in the order received. If you can't understand something don't hesitate to ask.
  • Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. I will not help you if you do not follow my instructions.

 

 

Please download the following file => and save it to an USB flash drive.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST.exe and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

 

Run FRST the way you did before.

When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

Press the Fix button just once and wait.

The tool will make a log on the USB flash drive named (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

Also reboot the computer to Normal Mode and let me know if that was successful.

 

 

Regards,

Georgi

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
