I have a computer on which I've almost finished cleaning up the usual slew of adware and other rubbish but there's one item remaining that I can't figure out. I've run rkill, sc_cleaner, JRT, roguekiller, adwcleaner, malwarebytes, an avast boot-time scan and the boot CD scans with both avast and kaspersky antivirus and while they've removed quite a bit of rubbish I can't remove, or figure out, this last entry. I can's see anything using Autoruns that leaps out at me either.

 

Roguekiller is reporting, on the "rootkit" tab, in red, the following entry :

 

Detection                                       Name                                                                  Module

Filter : (Root.Keylogger)                \Driver\kbdclass @ \Device\0000007b               \Driver\eabfiltr @ Unknown

 

Can anybody tell me how to figure out if this is genuine malware or if it's simply misidentified by Roguekiller?

 

Many thanks

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

RogueKiller is not allowed in this forum so...

 

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Cheers. I've posted the logs here : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/570685/possible-keylogger/

 

I've been a member here for quite a few years and gained many invaluable insights along the way, but it's the first time that I've gotten to the point where I need to ask for help so it'll be an interesting experience.

 

I've been using a number of the automated tools from the Bleeping Computer downloads section with great success - including the one reporting this issue - hence if it's ok to ask it would be good to know why that particular program isn't allowed here?

Because it shouldn't be used without malware removal specialist supervision.

Ahhh ok.

 

I'm a self-employed computer tech serving my local suburb and typically have to clean up junk from people's computers almost daily, and I've been using these tools without the proper training. I haven't trashed anything yet and I'm not completely clueless but I certainly accept that it's living dangerously. Now I'm trying to get my post count up so I can enrol in one of the courses that I just discovered on the forum :) . I reckon that won't do me any harm at all.
