    Thanks. I ran Malwarebytes 1.46 version 3444 before trying to scan with Gmer. It quarantined 27 infections and deleted them, including 5 Registry Key infections and 1 Registry Data infection.

GMER is only utility for removing root-kits only.

Why not try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware here, remove all malwares


IObit Security 360 here, remove all malwares

Both are good free programs.

What is rootkit

A rootkit is software that is malicious and conceals the presence or operation of another program so that it is difficult to be detected by traditional anti-virus / anti-malware programs. It also makes the higher privilege accounts in the computer ("admin" in Windows and in the case of unix machines - "root") available to the malicious software that permits manipulation of programs and settings that lower classes of account holders usually do not have.

As you may be able to tell, a rootkit installed on a computer is very dangerous. You must use applications that specifically identify, locate and help remove them when found. Traditional anti-virus and anti-malware programs do not do this.

If you suspect a rootkit is running on your computer, google "rootkit" and look for links to programs that will detect and remove them. Most are free. Follow the directions and you should be able to remove it without losing any data on your computer.

How do i get rid of a trojan horse virus

If you are having trouble with suspected viruses on your computer, visit:

Check out the forums to see what other remedies might be there. If worse comes to worst, post your own topic and someone will help you. One time, I had a terrible, very new, rootkit virus and it took 2 weeks to finally remove. But the help from BleepingComputer was exquisite.

Blue screen and freezes randomly

There could be hard disk errors that need to be fixed, or there could be files in your OS that are missing. First you should login to an account that has administrator privileges and go to Start, select Run and in the Run window type CMD and then hit enter to bring up your command prompt. If you're using Vista or Windows 7, go to the Start Orb and type CMD into the search bar, then right+click CMD and pick "Run as Administrator." Now, in the command prompt, type SFC /SCANNOW and hit enter. If you're missing any files you will be prompted to insert your Windows disc, it is quite possible that you don't have one, but the main reason you're doing this is to see if you're missing OS files because if you are then that will immediately explain the blue screens and freezes because parts of your Operating System are gone. Anyway, it will prompt you for a specific disc, if you don't have it and you don't know anyone who has it then you can't complete the scan, so stop/cancel it and run it again when you get the CD. For now though, let's work with what we have. We want to see if your harddrive is damaged. In command prompt type CHKDSK /R this will scan your harddrive for errors and repair them on the next reboot (this scan will take at least 40min). After all of that, you should run a PC/Registry optimizer such as Glary Utilities (I prefer this one because it's free and simple to use. Tell it to scan after you install it and then tell it to repair the issues it finds.
Scanning with an anti-malware program, an anti-rootkit program, and an anti-spyware program certainly won't hurt anything. The 3 free programs I use are -- Anti-Malware -- Anti-Rootkit -- Anti-spyware
If you don't have any antivirus program installed, Avast! Is a great one, but it does not work well at all with other anti-virus programs, so don't install it if you have another anti-virus program (such as Norton Antivirus, Panda Anti-virus) running.

Hope this helps!

Gmer is frozen after I download. Should I click the start link on the top left hand corner? I'/m a newbie to Gmer.

Probably the file is corrupted or infected. It is just a free root-kit detector & remover program.

If your PC is infected read this link at FIXYA.

Anti Virus

Here is what I would do.

First I would start off by downloading the free trial of ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus. Afterward I would scan my system (In-Depth Scan) with the free trial of NOD32 (It doesn't use a lot of system resources). Next I would download the free version of Ad-Aware 2008. After the anti-virus scan finished I would scan my system with Ad-Aware (Full Scan). Next I would download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. After Ad-Aware finishes scanning I would start a scan with Spybot. Next I would download and install AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After Spybot finishes scanning I would run an in-depth search on all hard-drives with the use of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

If that doesn't whack it, fighting this thing might not be worth it. Reinstall the windows operating system after you back up any files which you absolutely HAVE to keep.

Reoccurring virus

I am glad i am the first person to see this. Rootkits infect some vital processes. I had one once, but i got rid of it.
