@VistaKing,

Just read the RK report, and take appropriate action.

I really do not know what has been done here, and do not like to do things blindly.

Cottonball, he ran ESET it found viruses it removed them. He restarted the computer ran RogueKiller asked him to upload the log . Which he did . Asked him to run MSE he said the scan came clean .

Hello, I'm a new member. I've got this nasty virus and I cannot get rid of it. Microsoft security essentials keeps detecting it every time I run a complete scan even though it says it is in quarentine. It does not detect it in safe mode. Maybe it is a rootkit? Avira detects it as a hidden...
