Rootkit.Rustock and Hijack.WindowsUpdates

Recommended Posts

I'm on my knees with this thing! Any help appreciated!

Running NOD32 and also Lavasoft Ad-Aware. None report anything out of the ordinary. Mbam finds the Rootkit.Rustock and Hijack.WindowsUpdates and cleans them, but they're still there after reboot.

Earlier I also had the antivirus2010 fake virus-program and some sort of iframe-injection virus, but I think i got those cleaned.

Anyway, the logs:

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes.

I Apologize for the late response.

If you still require assistance, we would like to see the latest state of your system. So, please post a New Hijackthis log. In your reply, I would also like to know any symptoms you may still have and how your computer is running at the moment.

Take a read in this thread on instructions on how to post a Hijackthis log and other further instructions:


Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don’t hear from you in five days this thread will be closed.

With Regards,
