If your computer is acting different, and yes, you know what we mean. It’s doing weird things, slow, you can’t open applications, freezes up. Somethings wrong with it and you need to get it fixed.
Came across a client with 21 nasty ass Trojans, 3 Rootkits, IE 8 wouldn’t open, couldn’t down load Chrome, rebooting it constantly and who knows what else before they called me. You know it’s been going on for more than that day.
Your Bonus Tip today is to check the Scheduled Tasks. This system had 40-50 bogus tasks scheduled to help crap out their system.
Here is the tools I used to get it cleaned up:
TDSSKiller (which “Cured” one of the Rootkits)
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Scrubbed out most of the Trojans and 2 Rootkits)
Microsoft Security Essentials (Eradicated another Trojan)
Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool (Bonus Tool!)
Did a follow up call with the client, never heard back. Which in the tech world, is a real good thing.
