    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    HJT won`t do anything against a rootkit infection.

    The only 100% way of getting rid of a rootkit is to reformat and reinstall.

    There are a some tools that claim they can get rid of rootkits, but I cannot vouch for their effectiveness.

    Here are two such tools.

    Again I cannot take any responsibility for any data loss etc.

    If it was my computer that had a rootkit, I`d deffinitely reformat and start again.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
