And... Can you copy and paste CKScanner 'log', please?

Do what jacee said Avast finding 14 rootkits sound strange to me.

I don't have my laptop at the moment, left it to my dad so he could install Microsoft Office Student Version 2010, and I asked him to do a factory restore.

Yesterday I ran aswMBR (Out of curiosity) and I "think" it didn't find anything in the MBR, and Malwarebytes has only found 1 PUP, not a virus.

As soon as I get back home I'll run CKScanner and post logs in a post.

My laptop has not showed performance decrease, only my mind due to paranoia :/

I am about to begin the CKScan, and well, some other things about how has the computer been so far:

-Applied some Windows Updates, except the SP1 which I never seem to install… code 800B0100. This is usual, so I don't really get stressed.

- Ran TDSSKiller, just to kill my worries, and nothing found. Downloaded straight from Kaspersky's website.

- Quickly checked Task Manager and Resource Monitor to notice the usual 2.2 GB of RAM consumed by everything (services, programs, Steam, etc.) and I don't know if it's normal for processor speed to rise up to 20% when running an Avast full scan?

- Ran another full scan, clean, with the usual "Air Display" dll's not being fully scanned because Avast reached the end of the file.

- Ran IE, to access websites, such as Avast's and other security related websites, no problem.


So, if there were a rootkit hidden, it must of have some sort of virtual intelligence to avoid me xD… I'll post CKScan log ASAP.

Also, all my virus definitions are updated, or so I suppose. Will download Windows Defender Offline just for fun, and get it to my empty USB drive for future problems… also to scan when CKScan ends :3
