I just found out I'm infected by the rootkit virus called Rootkit.mbr.mayachok.b. I couldn't boot my drive; it would constantly lead to bluescreen. Out of about 20 trials, it would boot maybe once. I've been trying to run rootkit remover like TDSS killer, but I can't run the setup.exe. Nothing basically happens when I click it. I tried to change the name to mspaint.exe and still no luck. Please help me :(

I would suggest that you ask for elevated help, as a MBR rootkit can be a problem to remove in addition to the BSoDs.

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.

Thanks for the reply.

I just decided to format my C drive for the sake of time and for lack of my knowledge.

 

1. I was told to use something called like BC Total Wipeout, then install the OS. Does this actually work and will it reset MBR?

 

2. I was also told to use the recovery console with the OS installation CD and run bootrec /fixboot. Is this procedure part of the option no. 1 (mentioned above)? Or is this a separate trial from the option no.1 ?

If the tool in #1 completely erases the content of the hard drive (MBR included) then #2 should not be necessary (and not doable as the old OS is wiped).
