GMER rootkit causing unexpected shutdown

Recommended Posts

I found Malware on my mothers computer and am attempting to follow the process listed http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=9573 , however GMER keeps causing unexpected shutdowns. I have included with this post DDS.txt and have zipped and attached attach.txt. I will only be able to access her computer for the next 24 hours and am curious if I should just reinstall with that time? What should I do next?

DDS (Ver_10-10-21.02) - NTFSx86

Hello Big_Dirty! Welcome to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forums!

My name is Borislav and I will be glad to help you solve your problems with malware. Before we begin, please note the following:

  • The process of cleaning your system may take some time, so please be patient.
  • Follow my instructions step by step if there is a problem somewhere, stop and tell me.
  • Stay with the thread until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • If you don't know or can't understand something please ask.
  • Do not install or uninstall any software or hardware, while work on.
  • Keep me informed about any changes.

What malware? Do you have more information about it?
