Rootkit.TDSS Infection


Recommended Posts

Hi, I think I have a Rootkit.TDSS infection according to MBAM. It detects two instances of Rootkit.TDSS, and allows me to remove it, but every time I restart my computer it is still there. I've tried to manually delete Rootkit.TDSS' files through safe mode based on an educated Google search, and I seem to have eliminated most of the symptoms. However, recently my computer seems to freeze temporarily for anywhere from 5 to 45 seconds intermittently.

I wonder if this is some residual Rootkit.TDSS problem I have yet to have cleaned up.

Thanks in advance for the help!
