  1. Thanks too, Firefox. Yes, I never said I was forced to take any decision I didn't want to. However, I was kinda surprised by the fact that no technician knew (or tell) that there is a folder by the name S-1-5 etc. inside the Recycler, while a user of medium -he never claimed othewise- knowledge did and said it to me -in another forum. So, having in mind that this is a mainly a forum, I thought it good to comment about it.
  2. To whom it may concern... ... and Hello Firefox. No, I am not still infected. Rotinom creates a new folder by the name S-1-5 etc. inside User/Local Settings/Application Data where it places a copy of itself. This folder was erased after disinfection. Then, by chance I discovered one with the same name inside Recycler and I was alarmed because of the name. Since I didn't know there is a normal Windows' system folder by that name, I was afraid I was not properly disinfected. I was more concerned after I saw I could not get rid of it, although I could temporarily delete it -firstly with the a

  4. P.S. Also, something that might be of help concerning this worm and its aftermath. After MalwareBytes had finished the job, I rechecked both my C drive and the external hard-disc which was infected (and which was the source of the data Rotinom had transfered to my C drive, filling it to the top) and nothing was found. Then, I scanned them also with Kaspersky and PandaCloud Cleaner; nothing was found too. However, almost every folder of my external drive, including the one where all my data is stored, had been set to "hidden" by Rotinom and I could see them only after changing the related Regis
  5. Hello again, I had no reply, so I guess nobody can figure out what is going on with this case; or nobody wants to reveal it without charge. In any case, let me add things I noticed. My laptop still behaves normally; no sign of Rotinom after one week, more or less. However, the "S-1-5-21-583907252-764733703-682003330-1005" folder is still there, despite my everyday's efforts to get rid of it. I keep deleting it every time I notice its presence and after a while it returns. Meanwhile, I have noticed some things: 1) The "S-1-5-21-583907252-764733703-682003330-1005" folder is considered to be
  6. Hello everybody, I have posted this one yesterday in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help, but I was advised this is the right place for it. So, I repost it here with some additional details. Thanks. I was recently infected by this beast, Rotinom, not really that dangerous but persistent enough. (Note: I had no Antivirus in my laptop when this happened.) To be brief, I managed to, seemingly, get rid of it by the combined help of Malwarebytes, Kasperksy and some online instructions I followed manually (e.g. adjusting some registry values in order to show super hidden folders.) However, the next t

To be brief, I managed to, seemingly, get rid of it by the combined help of Malwarebytes, Kasperksy and some online instructions I followed manually (e.g. adjusting some registry values in order to show super hidden folders). However, the next time I switched my laptop on, I discovered in each one of the folders called "Recycler" -which exist in each one of the hard disks, built-in or external- a folder with the name
