cngerra,

The RogueKiller report is not showing malware files, or an infected MBR.
We would need more scans to confirm, though.

Can you provide some info:

Q 1. What led you believe the system has a file infector virus...did your AntiVirus program detect it? If so, can you post a screenshot of what is reported? Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Q 2. Does the name Sality come up?

Q 3. Are you planning to reformat the partition where the Operating System is found, or, are you planning to attempt a disinfection?

Thanks!
