"I am not a security expert. I suggest that you start a thread in the System Security section and ask for help there: System Security - Windows 7 Forums. There are some really good pros there. You can tell them that you posted in the BSOD section, uploaded your files, and they contained a rootkit.

If you have a system image when you know your system was clean, you can reformat your drive and re-image it. Just so you know, malware can certainly cause BSOD's." -Carltr6- sent me to these forums

well what do i do to get my system back up and running...?
