Windows 7 Home Premium


If you do not wish to pursue the advice given by Jacee, then, it looks as if we need to burn a Windows 7 RE CD...

Since the system is Windows 7 Home Premium, this is the ISO image:
Download to the Desktop.

This CD is not an installation CD, it just has some tools to get you going.

Also download to the Desktop the Active@ ISO Burner program to create the CD:


Follow the prompts to install the program.

After installing the Active@ ISO Burner, place a blank CD-R in the CD burner drive of the computer.
Double-click the .iso for Windows 7, and the program automatically opens.

Make sure the full path to the ISO image file (on the Desktop) is in the Source field.
In the Target area verify the proper CD Burner drive is selected. (The PC may have more than one.)

Click: BURN

When done, the CD created ejects.

Post back when you get it done, and we will proceed.

Will be back here at around 7:00PM Central Std Time (USA)

Borg 386:

TDSSKiller... automates this process, & resets the boot sector back to it's rightful place.
It is your choice. We can go the TDSSKiller route, if you wish, per instructions that follow.

If it does not work, there is still the option to go with the Windows 7 RC CD and FRST64.

Right-click the program and select: Extract to tdsskiller\

A TDSSKiller folder is found on your Desktop.
Open the folder, and double-click the TDSSKiller application.

When TDSSKiller opens, click on: Change Parameters
Under Additional Options, place a check in the box next to: Detect TDLFS File System
Click: OK

Press: Start Scan

If a suspicious object is detected, the default action is Skip, leave it as is, and click on: Continue
If malicious objects are found, they show in the Scan results.
Ensure Cure (the default) is selected, then click: Continue > Reboot now, to finish the cleaning process.
(Note: If Cure is not available, select Skip, >>Do not select: Delete<<)

When done, the tool outputs its log to the system disk root folder (the disk with the Windows Operating System, normally C:\).

Logs have a name like:

>>Please post the TDSSKiller log in your reply.<<

If TDSSkiller has come clean...
We need to take a look at these results before doing anything else!!

If you wish to proceed with the Windows 7 RC CD, then...

Please go to the infected computer.
Plug in the pendrive which has FRST64.

To enter System Recovery Options using the Windows 7 Recovery Environment Disc:
¦Insert the disc created into the CD drive.
¦Restart the computer.
¦If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
(If your computer is not configured to start from a CD, check your BIOS settings to do so.)

¦Select Language settings, etc., and then click: Next
¦Select the Operating System you want to repair, and then click: Next
¦At the next prompt, click: Repair your computer

Now, follow the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool instructions in Post # 3, from here onwards:
On the System Recovery Options menu you get the following options:

On TDSSKiller...

Please run it once again, and this time, if presented with the TDSS File System entry, select: Delete instead of Skip (sample - bottom entry):

Please post the new TDSSKiller log in your reply.

Also, let's also check the partitions in the hard drive to make sure the hidden partition from which Aleuron 'operates' is gone.

Please download ListrParts:
Save to the Desktop

Double-click the downloaded file to run the program.

Click: Scan

When done, please post the Result.txt in your reply
