Well oh well. my sister computer got infected by Hacktool.Rootkit, dunno what the hell she downloaded but its kinda a pain in the ass to remove it.

It kinda infecting each file i think, so do you guys know a software that actually removes it? I tried Norton, updating virus definition and etc and it couldn't erase it..

This stupid virus is irritating me..

Wonder if Firewall help? Or any other program that helps to delete this ugly disturbing trojan?

- Looking forward an answer
Thx!

Hacktool.Rootkit comprises a set of programs and scripts that work together to allow attackers to break into a system. If Hacktool.Rootkit is detected on a system, it is very likely that an attacker has gained complete control of that system. All files that are detected as Hacktool.Rootkit should be deleted. Infected systems may need to be restored from backups or patched to restore security.
The presence of Hacktool.Rootkit implies that the security of the system has been compromised. The system should be restored from known clean backup copies or patched to restore security.

I have split your HJT log away from this thread and moved it into the HJT forum.

You can find it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/92990/hacktoolrootkit-trojan-horse/

Now that your log is posted there, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and complicate the malware removal process.

Please be patient and wait for a response from an HJT Team member. It may take a while to get a response because team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. While waiting, please DO NOT make another reply to your log 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.
