I deleted mssyn2020 under my username (with admin rights) in safe mode. but i'm
still getting the blue screen referencing the file "mssync20.sys". so i'm thinking of using
RKunhooker but i couldn't find any removal instructions along with it.
does anyone have a RKunhooker "how to use" guide with
preliminary steps to follow (if any) so to ensure the removal of mssync20.sys is successful?

note that I wasn't able to do all the steps in the "Preparation Guide for use before posting a
HijackThis Log." cuz when using those online scanners, they just
stop in the middle and then im presented with the blue screen error log. it has
happen too many times. that i would like to spare the effort of being patient for the
scan to take its time to complete, and then see that effort go to waste, so i would
rather go right into eliminating the culprit file which i have identified already, hence,
no need to run the online scanners at this point, and i doubt they can detect this
rootkit at all. can they?

If you can't finish an online scan for some reason then skip that part and complete as many other scans in the Prep Guide as you can.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. Please be patient. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

You should avoid using RkUnhooker! It is written by an individual who (most probably) is participating in illegal activities like DDoS-ing and by running it you are giving him system-wide access! You can get more facts about RkUnhooker over at my blog.
