General discussion


This unusual rootkit virus has been bothering me for the longest of times. I have tried several virus protections to scan and detect it, none of them detects it. Yet, this virus has administrative rights over my computer and remote access. As of lately, it has made an attempt to include various others to access and intercept my online and computing experience. I need real help because this phisher, virus, spyware is irking my whole online experience. The irony I just graduated with an IT Pathway Certification still there is nothing I have tried that stops this invader(s) of my privacy.

I am trying the scans you recommend by tonight 10/27. I will have either positive results or negative ones. Thanks for the tip, if any of these work I will own you. Prior to this I used the Malwarebyte, McAfee, AVG 9.0 and Windows Live Security Suite and Microsoft Essentials.
