Rootkit Revealer Results Help

Posted on 2011-10-06
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
My personal Hotmail account keeps getting hacked.  By another member's suggestion, I ran Rootkit Revealer on two of my work machines.  I do not understand the results, however, one machine had quite a bit of results.

Please help me decode the results from both machines and let me know what I should do, if anything, about them.

Thanks in advance! RootkitReveal.txt RootkitReveal2.txt

    Have you tried updating your McAfee? and run a Full System Scan?
    You can also scan your machine using the latest MSRT from Microsoft.

    result is just more on McAfee and Microsoft Activity.

    Thanks, taga ipil.

    I did just run a full system scan yesterday after a long break with no found issues.  I believe the McAfee updates are automatic.  Could you tell me more about the MSRT?  I'm not familiar with that.

    ^ Never mind about MSRT.  I found it and am running a full scan right now.

    hehehe... forgot the full name, cause when you put it on a search box it will be the first result.

    Microsoft Software Removal Tools.

    Change also your Password and your Hotmail profile settings to HTTPS when you browse their page.

    and Do not Auto Remember Password specially if multiple users are using the machines.

    Clearing Cookies on the browser will help as well.

    It took a while, but MSRT came up clean as well.  I'm guessing I must be getting caught somehow with a website I've visited or a recycled password.  It seems to only happen on Hotmail, so I will try this completely new one for a while and hopefully that does the trick.

    Thank you for your help.  It appears my machine is clean.  I will run these test on all the other machines just to be sure, but it looks like I'm getting caught off-guard in some way.  That's a relief.
