  1. Hi, I have a situation here where I can't seem to get internet access. A virus has pop-up under symantec called hacktool.rootkit. I tried deleting the hpdriver.sys file that the virus was supposedly attached, in safe mode. When I rebooted the machine..the virus came back up.

    C:\WINNT\Profiles\Administrator\Desktop\HijackThis.exe
    put HijackThis in e.g C:\Program Files\HJT and NOT in Temp or on the Desktop!.

    That Rootkit is not visible from your log.
    Anyway, run this first
    http://www.trendmicro-middleeast.co...p?LYstr=VMAINDATA&vNav=1&VName=TROJ_ROOTKIT.N

    Boot in Safe Mode, see how here.
    In Windows Explorer, turn on "show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.

    Next, open Windows Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE.
    Click the Processes tab, select the process (if there) and click End Process for:
    scmsm32.exe

    Next, click Start/Run and type services.msc and click OK. Look for the service:
    scmsm32.exe
    Doubleclick it, click Stop if it's running, and change the Startup type to Disabled.

    Next, run a HJT scan and (if still there) place a tick-mark in the little square before:
