Windows 7: IEHighutil.exe Need urgent help, something that can fry my GPU

I ran WDO, Malware Bytes Rootkit, TDDKS, Karspersky Virus Removal Tool, and TDDKS found a rootkit on iastor, which funnily enough, had something to do with the SCSI. That's it. That's what all of those programs found.
I guess my computer is clean now?

EDIT: Here are the DDS reports

EDIT 2: I opened task manager again to see if iehighutil.exe was running, but then found a process named ielowutil.exe . Is someone messing with me? haha
But, instead of opening the process location, i ended it. Now i have to wait to see if it runs again to get to the bottom of this.

EDIT 3: I also uploaded a msinfo32 report

TDSS/TDL3 uses rootkit technology to hide itself on a system by infecting drivers like iastor.sys, atapi.sys, and a few others.

We can't be too careful with this. Need to see the following:

The TDSSKiller tool outputs its log to the disk with the Windows operating system, normally C:\

Logs have a name like:
C:\TDSSKiller.2.4.7_27.02.2013_15.31.43_log.txt

Please post the TDSSKiller log in your reply.

And, an iaStor.sys error anytime may cause an scsiport.sys BSOD, as both of these are storage root related.

If those tootkits are deleted, hopefully the BSODs will also be stopped, provided iaStor itself is not causing a problem there. Other than this particular version, all other recent versions of RST (iaStor.sys) is somehow problematic.

Arc,

Hopefully, if a backup copy of iaStor.sys is not found, TDSSKiller will try to cure the infected file.

However, we need to take a gander at that TDSSKiller log to see if the issue was resolved.

Otherwise, we need to find out what is going on...

Umm... I deleted the log yesterday. But from what i remember is, IASTOR.sys had 3 infections on it, and it couldn't be disinfected, only quarantined and deleted. I deleted it.

Also, i ran driver verifier like someone suggested, and had a nice little BSOD as a surprise on log-on.
I uploaded the BSOD Dump.

As far as the BSOD report goes, Arc is your expert.

It is unfortunate the report was deleted. The information on it is valuable in determining a plan of action.

Let's see if there is another iaStor.sys available in your system...

Please download SystemLook:
http://jpshortstuff.247fixes.com/SystemLook.exe
Save the file to the Desktop
  • Right-click SystemLook.exe and select: Run as Administrator
  • Copy the content inside the following quote box into the open field:
Quote:
:filefind
iaStor.sys
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
When finished, a Notepad window opens with the results of the scan.

Please post the SystemLook.txt in your reply.

Yes, and everything that is being suggested for me here, i am telling him to do.
It's strange however, that he doesn't have a temporary folder in C:/

Why do you ask?

Well so you can help your friend. Your friend is infected also. Knowing where your friend got this little sweat heart of a infection would also help making sure you and your friend don't make the same mistake again.
