Hello, TechSpot community, and thanks in advance for your help. Recently and to my great displeasure I was infected with the "SystemFix XP Antivirus 2012" malware and associated rootkit. I have spent all day fixing it and have made good progress but I am paranoid that I haven't removed every ounce of the problem. None of the scans I have run recently have shown any signs of continued infection, but I would like someone experienced to assist me in making sure. I took several steps to fix this problem: Installed and ran MalwareBytes which removed several threats Ran rkill to disable any current threats Merged a registry adjustment to enable .exe files to run (which was necessary after the reboot requested by Malwarebytes) Ran unhide.exe to unhide the system files Ran a renamed hdsskiller from a thumb drive which removed some threats but was unable to remove a suspicious forged file, redbook.sys Ran an ESET online virus scan which found and removed one threat. Replaced my previous antivirus (Symantec Corporate Edition, which would no longer update) with Microsoft Security Essentials. Ran Secunia System Score to identify any out of date programs and update them (score changed from 86% to 99%) Ran GMER and dds.scr as requested by the forum guidelines I am still getting Google redirects in Chrome, but seemingly not in Firefox. I have not yet engaged in any DNS flushing procedures, but that would be the next step I try. I will attach the requested logs in my applies. Thank you for any assistance and advice you can provide me.
