Hello there, One of my machines using running on Windows Vista SP2 has a semi-serious problems, even i cannot name it. This is the final chance for me to figure out whether i'm safe or not. Here is the issue. I came across a malware a few years ago which is infected my machine through a non-secure JAVA web applet. After this infection, i immediately took some actions and tried neutralizing malware and cleaning as well, i also used Malwarebytes 1.x and 2.x series. After some years have passed, i still noticed that the nasty and non-existent registry entry of this malware is still visible by regedit, and GMER. I had no abnormal activity since then, and tried numerous rootkit removers listed below with following results: - GMER: Shows hidden driver service highlighted red but unable to remove / disable because it's not existed in fact (IMHO). - Sophos Anti-Rootkit: No malware is found, system is clean. - BitDefender Anti-Rootkit: No malware is found, system is clean (scan took very short though, not sure why). - Kaspersky TDSS Remover: No malware is found, system is clean. - Rootkit Hook Analyzer: No malware is found, system is clean. - Symantec TDSS Fix Tool: No malware is found, system is clean. -...and finally Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit BETA along with Malwarebytes Premium (3.3.1) edition: System is clean, no malware is found. Although almost all of major removers say that the system is clean, i'm so picky that i have no idea why regedit and GMER display the presence of malware (PragmaXXXXX - random numbers), especially regedit shows error immediately when i click on this key as if it does NOT exist, but i can't do anything even i try a lot of methods including running regedit under SYSTEM account, running offline registry editor using recovery disc, and using command prompt. It seems a kind of very strange glitch in registry file, and it cannot be removed there eventhough the entry (PramaXXXXX) is shown. I'm attaching all the screenshots that would help on describing the issue, along with FRST log, addition.txt log and MBAM Anti-Rootkit log file. I'd be so grateful if there is any additional steps to take other than formatting the whole drive, as i have a lot of documents and installations with senstive configurations. Thanks in advance!
