Wait, Update and Windows Games is working again after a restart. :D Only security essentials is still deactivated and gives me an error when I start it...

Also, could you maybe tell me how to delete the malware entries in msconfig / systemstartup? They are deactivated but still there. Would be nicer without them. :D Thanks a lot!

I tried that. When I start the installer it tells me "it's already installed":.. :(

Well, I deinstalled and reinstalling it now and it seems to be working now. So thanks a ton again for your help. Couldn't've done without you. Could you please answer three final questions?

1. Can you tell me how I got potentially infected? Was it maybe because I downgraded from framework 4.0 to 3.5? I wanted to play LA Noire which only supports 3.5.

2. Is it possible to delete the malware entries under msconfig / system startup

3. Is my system clean now?

Yeah, Charlie. It's working now. Thanks a lot. Only the three questions above are still boggling my mind. :D

No, I don't think so, here's some links:

No

Due to that fact that rootkit.0access is a backdoor trojan, this is the warning we often give people:

One or more of the identified infections is known to use a backdoor.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would advice you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the infection has been identified and because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

I will try my best to clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards and......

We still have some cleanup to do, so don't go away, MrC

OK...personally I would say your computer is safe if that helps!

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

---------------------------------

Please download OTL from one of the links below: (you may already have OTL on the system)

http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe

http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.com

Save it to your desktop.

Run OTL and hit the CleanUp button. (This will cleanup the tools and logs used including itself)

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete.

IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, etc....

-------------------------------

Any questions...please post back.

If you think I've helped you, please leave a comment > click on my avatar picture > click Profile Feed.

Take a look at My Preventive Maintenance to avoid being infected again.

Good Luck and Thanks for using the forum, MrC
