Turned my PC on today and noticed it took a much longer start-up time. Went on-line using Firefox as usual ... ADSL connection would hardly work ... changed over to CDMA dongle connection and on-line ok ... but thinking something wrong ... went off-line and scanned with Avira - nil result MBAM - nil result SASpyware - detected Trojan.RootKit/Gen I then used my laptop to go on-line and read that others using SASpyware had only deleted the trojan files and does not repair damage caused by this Trojan. I took no action and closed down SASpyware. Decided to contact you guys as best way to go. No problems with Steps 1~4, but had major problems when trying to get the gmer.log. First time I ran it (in RootKit tab) it crashed windows and I got the BSOD. I had unknowingly left my printer turned-on and also my firewall - ZAlarm (Avira Guard had been deactivated). Restarted PC (printer and ZA now off, and also then turned off windows firewall) Ran the gmer.exe again, but it was just taking ages - seemed like everything was related to ZA and it could have been in some sort of loop. Tried with 'Devices" unchecked - same results. Decided to delete gmer.exe and re-download (now with different filename) ... Ran it again, but after about 30mins again (log size about 90odd KB) - i thought must be something wrong ... stop and saved what it had logged up to that time. * would you like me to copy and paste MBAM log, GMER log, and DDS logs or attach them ? many thanks & regards, Buzz PS: Apologies for the long winded description.
