Several days back a family member downloaded some suspicious torrents from a vauge site, and managed to catch an internet hijacker. It installed a number of trojans and a rat, all of which i was able to remove using Avast, Malwarebytes, and even superantispyware just for kickers. However, one peice of the software remains on my hardrive. A hidden install of Fiddler root, which was the first part of the program which intercepted https and sent the data to a remote server. My AV's dont detect Fiddler being that it isnt naturally maliscious because it is a legitmate program used by a good number of people apparently. I desperatly need this program uninstalled, I'm unsure as to what could still be buired in the programs architecture so keeping in is out of the question.
I just dont know what to do, i cant uninstall the program manually because "windows add/remove a program" cand detect it, and my AV dont see it as being maliscious so they ignore it. I cant find out what ver. of the Fiddler the Hijacker was using because its hidden as well, so trying to find the version spec. registries wont work either.
to summarize up,
OS: Windows 7 64bit
Infection: Hidden Install dir of Fiddler Root
Actions taken: Ran a complete boot disk scan with Avast over the course of 33+ hours (1.85tb Hdd)
