I cannot open Firewall, Defender or any security functions within windows without this error message popping up. However, I have run Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller as well as Sophos anti-rootkit, but they both say that my machine is clean. I am running Win 7 64 bit.
I read this in another blog, and found both of these events on my PC...
This firewall issue is commonly found on vista and windows 7 (64 BIT OS)
This is symptom for rootkit on 64 bit systems
if you find a folder called system64
C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM64(not the sysWOW64)
and a file called consrv.dll
You're infected by zero access rootkit.It is recommended to contact malware removal forums to remove it first and try the fix
Now I just need to know how to rid myself of it. Any help greatly appreciated!
