Tried everything listed to remove HACKTOOL.ROOTKIT still nothing

  1. I've tried everything listed thus far to remove hacktool.rootkit from my comp but to no avail. Tried the TrendMicro scen, the rootkitRevelaer found nothing, my HJT is attached... all seem to be clear and indicate none of the problem files: C:\WINDOWS\javapanel.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\taskcntr.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\xpjava.exe

    I have symantec and run the liveupdates and have tried scanning in safe mode, and have already turned off system restore. Symantec says it finds nothing on the hour full scan, yet when i re-start my computer the warning message comes up with a hacktool.rootkit that has been quarentined.

    I have only a wek old laptop with not much stored or new data on here, is it worth it to just restore my entire laptop? If so, what's the best way of doing so? I would ideally like to try and fix the problem, as anyone would, but am running out of options it seems.

    Thank you verrrrrrrrrrrrry much!! :) :) :)

    Boot in Safe Mode, see how here.
    Switch System restore OFF, 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:
    lockx.exe
    RXIRERYRBZ.exe
    sysclean.com
    sysclean.exe

    Next, click on Start/Run and type in (followed by press Enter):
    regsvr32 /u C:\Program Files\MyWaySA\SrchAsDe\deSrcAs.dll

    Next, click Start/Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs. If there, UNinstall anything to do with:
    C:\Program Files\MyWaySA\SrchAsDe\deSrcAs.dll

    Next, click Start/Run and type services.msc and click OK. Look for the service:
    lockx.exe
    RXIRERYRBZ.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:
    ...................................................................................................
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\lockx.exe

    Now click on the Fix Checked button in HJT. Exit HJT.

    When done, from between the above dotted lines, delete the highlighted bold files.
    When a \directory-name\ is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Rightclick IE on the desktop, select Properties, click on Delete Cookies, and Delete Files.
    Delete ALL files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).
    XP only: Delete ALL files from C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch.
    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.
