Now I consider myself a geek and I'm usually the go-to guy for other people who need tech help but I'm pretty stumped by this. I could continue trying out random removal tools but I figured asking the pros would be beneficial! Running Windows 8 on a laptop. I got infected by a normally perfectly good website which must have become compromised. I use Chrome and Avast AV so I'm surprised I wasn't notified during the infection. First Chome crashed then my computer bluescreened within a minute of going to the infected website. Symptoms and things tried: After logging onto the computer it will bluescreen after about 20-40 seconds. Usually with error 0x000021A but sometimes with some other error like vital_service_died (or something like that). It doesn't crash if left on the login screen. When Windows restarts after the bluescreen it runs the drive checker on boot to check for drive errors. I've let this run a couple times and nothing bad is ever found. I just skip it now. I managed to get the computer to always load into safe mode w/ networking which is (almost) completely stable. I'm typing this message from there right now. Running a full Avast AV scan in safe mode reveals 119 infected files which it labels as being rootkits. It doesn't give any actual rootkit names. It suggests to let Avast run on boot to remove the items but my computer always bluescreens while shutting down or restarting (even from safe mode) so Avast has been unable to do a boot scan. Malwarebytes comes up with no infections (I'll attach the log anyway). I got Kaspersky TDSSKiller which finds 82 infections all of which it calls "Suspicious object, medium risk". I chose to copy all the objects to quarantine Then I restarted and scanned again but everything was still there. I got AVG boot scan which runs off of a bootable CD. It found nothing. Many thanks for any help!
