I don't know if my computer is clean

Recommended Posts


My problem is the next. I was recently infested with zpevdo.a, searching I found it's a rootkit... I was unable to start MalwareBytes... using Malwarbytes Chameleon I fixed it and was able to start Malwarebytes, before that I was having problems with Windows Defender, I'm unable to start his service.

Using MSE I was able to "delete" zpevdo.a from my computer, but I don't know if my computer is clean, I scan my computer several times with Malwarebytes Premiun Trial and Malwarebytes AntiRootkit.

It should be removed since Malwarebytes didn't detect any malware and rootkit (I activated "rootkit" option in Malwarebytes AntiMalware) but I'm not sure because I'm still unable to start Windows Defender process, If I'm not wrong MSE and Windows Defender are diferent, but I don't think MSE can have "compatibility" problems with Windows Defender because they are from the same company, Microsoft.

So I'm thinking It may be another or the same rootkit or malware that is unabling the service... when I start Windows Defender and try start the service it says "error 0x800106ba" I used "easy fix" diagnostic and It was unable to fix it.

So I decided to use Gmer AntiRootkit to see if there's any malware/rootkit left, It detected as thread "svchost.exe" and "WUDFhost.exe", I'm not sure if it's true.

I already tried using sfc scannow and I still being unable to start Windows Defender service, I'll try if FSS can solve it...

Basically, after this long bible my questions is:

There's a way I can start Windows Defender service without getting error 0x800106ba? 

Is there any incompatibility with MSE and WD?
