Rootkit Blocking TDSSKiller From Running
Posted on 2012-08-29
I am working on removing a virus from a clients PC. I have so far ran Combo Fix twice and RKill/Malwarebytes once. In all three cases, viruses were found and dealt with. However, when I am attempting to run TDSSKiller to check for a root kit, it will not run. There is no error message or anything, it simply does not execute.
I have tried re-downloading TDSSKiller and renaming it but it still is unsuccessful. I have also entered the Device Manager and checked for the presence of a TDSS Driver. I found nothing. An excellent post on this site (If You Can't Run .exes in an Infected System) mentioned that I should post a question in the Virus and Spyware forum.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
