    Nice. Not much learned from a format c: But as far as I know some of those rootkits can at least until diagnosed be close to a "wipe out" situation. Damn thing hooks on to stuff computer needs to run so what to do? Also I guess highly risky to offer an automatic solution. 1 point to Kaspersky for offering extra help. If you feel like uninstalling Mcafee then be my guest but they all fail with certain infections. Why SAS, Malwarebytes, even Spybot&Destroy! Changing AV product every time you experience or hear about problems will make you install/uninstall 24/7 Stick with what you like and can use correctly. You can increase protection without going crazy perhaps. https://forums.superantispyware.com/index.php?/topic/3466-dns-tip/ just one way... If on Vista/7 don't turn UAC off, silent it perhaps but never completely off. Having good backup policy also works, heh. If active on torrents, use many questonable RS links and so on then you need to adjust habits, at least check better Not saying you are but high risk computing require more than Mcafee, SAS.

    Well if nothing was found and you still have weird redirections then possible but there are special tools for special infections, like Kasperskys TDSSkiller http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684 If you want to scan more you could their Virus Removal Tool http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/avptool2010?level=2 Next step could be a boot-cd, Kaspersky have one of those too, or you could seek more/better help. Try search these forums for combofix a so called wonder tool but it depends a bit on who use it and how well it is scripted as of today... Can be risky to use without a plan B and perhaps not really on top of Plan A either. Or it will magically fix everything. Make up your own mind by reading this little guide http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix Have not seen any dedicated removal section here but they are all over the place. You can post at the site with Combofix. But be sure to read rules and do as you are told basically. They don't do much unless based on log-reading so it is back and forth. Can take some days. Unless you really have something completely unknown there is very good chance it can be removed. Some way or another. You would not happen to know which download you got infection from? If you still have that zip, rar or whatever you could upload it. Probably not a good idea to do it here but then do drop.io or similar. Then easy to check. Even if gone think about what went wrong, and how you can make sure it does not happen again.

    You could try Hitman Pro http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro - main/only feature is removal. Or scan with ESET online scanner http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ and Trends HouseCall http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ Both are almost on-demand scanners with quarantine and all. ESET can save a report of what it finds. Sadly Trends can not. Disable Mcafee while this run. SAS probably don't matter but also disable/shutdown other security stuff you might have running. All should be painless to use but take it easy. May be simple, may be not That very old program you used to scan for rootkit points at couple of few strange files. Does not look right for sure. Should probably try an updated scanner like Gmer, but be careful. Try easy solutions first - later you can check with Gmer.
