Windows 7: Need help with Rootkit problem?

29 Nov 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Sorry guys, I've never could figure out the problem (couldn't copy log files) with the software I was using (Sophos Anti-rootkits) but I got rid of one Rootkit that was messing up my Pc so that's good news.

Annyway, 1 million thanks guys for taking your precious time to help me out!

You could try Emsisoft Antimalware free for a usb stick and scan you computer with having to install a program. It has approximately over 5 million signatures and finds all kinds of other stuff as well.

Sophos should do the job best so I'd run it until it shows clean.

Someone in the Security forum here should be able to tell you how to upload its log file.

For now you can use the Snipping Tool in the Start Menu to take a screenshot(s) of its maximized results window. Post back using paper clip in reply box.
