Everytime i try to use the recovery console im getting a blue screen warning along the lines of 'A problem has been detected, windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your machine'
Tried it 5 times & getting the same thing every time.

Hi the_big_d,

Everytime i try to use the recovery console im getting a blue screen warning


OK, we can do the fix a different a different way.

Download SystemLook and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    Code: Select all
    :filefind
    ftdisk.sys
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.

Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Now we need to create a bootable CD.

Please download this iso file and burn a bootable CD.

Please check that you can boot with this CD and let me know.

How do i make the bootable CD ? I have power ISO, Do i just burn the file or is there a certain procedure ?
When i have the disc do i just change the system to the CD drive as 1st boot device ?
Also how do you check if it will boot from the CD without actually trying it ?

Hi the_big_d,

Hold fire on the boot CD for now, the SystemLook result shows that the boot CD fix will not work for this one.

Please run SystemLook again.

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    Code: Select all
    :dir
    C:\
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.

Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Now please run a new scan with GMER (in safe mode) and post the log along with SystemLook.txt.

Hi the_big_d,

The GMER log is now clean, however the TDSSKiller log did not show a successful removal.

Is it possible that TDSSKiller was run more than once, the first time the rootkit would have been removed and the log that was posted was from the second run?

Also please let me know if the slow running and popups have stopped.

I ran it twice as i didnt know how to get into the recovery console.
Everything appears to be ok as far as popups go & i think its running much better now.

If maxlook is still on the desktop then

  • Highlight and copy the text in the codebox below.
    Code: Select all
    "%userprofile%\desktop\maxlook" -cleanup
  • Click Start, click Run... and paste the text above into the Open: line and click OK.

If not then please skip the maxlook instructions and continue with the HijackThis fix.
