Error code 731(0,6) and scanner shutting down after detection

Recommended Posts


I have had an infection of Vundo variant which was picked up and deleted by Superantispyware. I ran scans with A-squared, Eset, Adaware, Avira and all haven't picked up anything even before deleting the vundo. After that I ran Trendmicro rootkit buster which picked up over 200 hidden files including encrypted ones. They were all deleted except one which it will not delete.

I have run a hijack this log. ( but don't understand it)

I have tried to scan using malwarebytes anti malware. Shortly after scanning starts a detection is notified along with an error code: 731(0,6). Then further into the scan after 35 minutes 2 more detectionsa re found and then the scanner stops makes the computer rev hard and shuts down the scanning program with no record of having been run.

My concern is that something is affecting the scanner which may be still on the machine.

Could someone please advise what I should do?

Thanks in advance
