Hello! I recently had a bunch of trojans downloaded to my computer from some fake software. Thankfully, I was able to delete and recover my computer back to "normal" after downloading Rkill and running Hitman Pro regularly. A few months have past however, and every once in a while I'll get another trojan or rootkit unknowingly downloaded to my computer. I run Rkill and Hitman Pro everyday just to check and it makes me wonder if the hacker on the other end has given up lol. Anyway, Rkill has found that there are some windows protocols that are turned off such as Windows Antispyware and malware being turned off, and Windows automatic updates. Also, there are a few resparse points and junctions that it has found as well. Attached is a text file from it's findings. Let me know if you can help in any way! Thanks! Rkill.txt
How to ignore scanning of folder redirected by NTFS junction ? I have in My Vista64 Home Premium SP2 folder c:\users\User\Downloads redirected by NTFS junction to E:\Downloads. During scanning of disk C MBAM scans c:\users\User\Downloads what I do not want. When I try to add c:\users\User\Downloads to exclude list, it adds instead of a junction the real target folder E:\Downloads. Until now all is good. But if I trigger next scan, it is scanning all the c:\users\User\Downloads again. I guess something is wrong in way how MBAM treats NTFS reparse points.
