    HJT does nothing for Hacktool.Rootkit infections.

    Have you tried using System Restore to go back to an earlier date?

    Norton will remove this:

    follow this instruction:

    removal instructions

    The presence of Hacktool.Rootkit implies that the security of the system has been compromised. The system should be restored from known clean backup copies or patched to restore security.

    The following instructions pertain to all current and recent Symantec antivirus products, including the Symantec AntiVirus and Norton AntiVirus product lines.

    1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
    2. Update the virus definitions.
    3. Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected.


    Also try and use rootkitrevealer.exe.zip (it may be a useful tool)
