And it is this self-same group modding down reminders that Brian recommends a live CD and/or an Apple box. I'm generally reluctant to upgrade an OS without a better understanding of why a problem is present. because that didnt fix it im just wondering if i can change it back.

Yet, they default everyone to being admin users. great work. For once the trojan is up and running, it starts to do even worse things.

Nicole February 18, 2010 at 4:33 pm Oh this is a double-win!

But once this is done and the trojan resides on the local machine, the following happens. 1. Regardless, considering the nature of threats these days, it is imperative to implement one of the biggest defenses against malware, the use of a non-admin account. The program also has it's own built-in antirootkit driver so using the stand alone anti-rootkit scanner should not really be necessary. Please try disabling Self Protection and then restart the computer. If the OP does in fact have a rootkit, he has already installed a newer Norton product over a possible rootkit.

That is until they become a victim of malware. Backing out the patch (using a Linux Live CD rather than the Recovery Console but basically doing the same thing) did not work. Come to think of it, I got a new Windows-7 laptop at work yesterday, and I installed a bunch of stuff. http://scvanet.org/possible-rootkit/possible-rootkit-zwenumeratekey.html Please download TDSSKiller Double click TDSSKiller.exe Press Start Scan but do nothing else as we are just looking for what is there.

It was a different ecosystem back then. Other benefits of registering an account are subscribing to topics and forums, creating a blog, and having no ads shown anywhere on the site. Not a fair fight. Rootkits on Windows normally are not installed through social engineering.

Let Windows boot up normally and please run the NIS scan again.

I have norton internet security 2009 and i have a problem with my full system scan. I hope I haven't stepped on anyone's toes with this suggestion. According to VirusTotal, these three vendors all detect the Kaspersky tool as potential malware: http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/e385b9d7912dbde0cdf4f48aff7e73d0dbffb9f6b7b6090b27016bfbbf690b2c-1266508047 Andrew from Vancouver February 18, 2010 at 7:16 pm A head-scratcher for me is: The machines When? 92-97% of all spam today is generated by Windows PCs.

Please also do the same thing in the Security events. txs Brian! i'm shocked! The biggest crime is that generations are being taught patching - post discovery of exploits - is normal and to be expected.

If you get another BSOD then please try disabling your antivirus and try again. In either case please let me know the results.  Normally here is what I would recommend for doing a It must be understood that security is a process, not a onetime thing like installing antivirus/security software and thinking you’re safe. what of microsoft's malware scanner and/or cleaner why doesn't microsoft guard with the os itself against malware hooking programs? Doing so could make your system inoperable and could require a full reinstall of your operating system and losing all your programs and data.

Hi Woodrow15, Thanks for the update.
