SAS did not identify the Zeroaccess rootkit that has infected one of my computers, however, neither did other highly regarded malware detection scanners (MBAM, Kapersky, Housecall, and others). Nevertheless, from the behavior of my machine, I knew it was compromised (constant right click menu popups from every application running and failure of Windows Task Switcher (ALT Tab). Only Comodo detected the rootkit, which SysInternals Rootkit Revealer confirmed. I'm still trying to remove it with the assistance of Bleeping Computer support, but they are insufferably slow. If anyone has suggestions, I'd appreciate them. Also, I'm wondering how much I can rely on SAS for rootkit protection?
I have done all that I can think of to remedy the situation safely. But to no avail. Some have been removed in safe mode and normal mode quick scan and online scans. However, everytime I go to do a full scan or critical scan. I get the BSOD. It happens when it gets to the ControlSet2/Enum directory. It can easily be a registry issue and/or virus/malware. Any ideas? System is Windows XP Home Edition.
