RKill's purpose is not to find and shut down rootkits. It is tool designed to do a specific job that helps those who have been trained to use malware removal tools to run those tools. Until now, you would not 'see' anything after running RKill.

ComboFix should not be compared to a commercial product. ComboFix is a powerful tool that, if used without expert knowledge and training, will result in your computer becoming an expensive paperweight.

While Hitman Pro *may* remove rootkits such as TDL3, it cannot guarantee your system is clean. It can only guarantee that it has found everything it's designed to find. Think about it... a few weeks ago no-one was aware of TDL3 but it was out there. How do you know whether the TDL3 rootkit has been used to download a yet-unknown sister rootkit? The safest way forward after the discovery of a rootkit is to reformat and re-install.
Hitman Pro contains definitions of 5 different Anti Virus. Now 5 AV cannot be wrong.
Also, format and reinstall? It means you quit and the malware won.

Can anyone tell me if I need to have both Malwarebytes *and* Hitman pro? I have a computer that was infected with TDL3, and Malwarebytes didn't detect it, but Hitman did. should i run both just in case a virus comes up that Hitman doesn't detect but Malwarebytes does and vice versa?

Thank you.

Yes you can run HitMan and then Malwarebytes. It is good to do both.

I have used Combofix. malwarbyte, hitman pro, prevx, avira, avg, and they are all good products. For me, I use Avast 5 for my real time protection, but I use hitman pro as a backup. I tried using microsoft security essentials, but lost faith in it. Don't get me wrong, mse had its moments, but it failures outweighed its successes. Just last night I had a client with a badly infected computer, she took it to geek squad, they told her the virus was too new, and it would take them a week to get it fixed. I ran combofix, and then Avast (boot scan), and cleaned it right on up. What I would love to find is a good browser protection app, to kill popups and ads, and some of those sites that make my IE stop responding and have to recover from time to time.

Hi, spyware blaster is a good browser protection software. If you use firefox, you might also use noscript n adblock plus addons..

Looks like they have removed Avira from the list. Now it shows only NOD32, G data, Prevx and A squared.
